Though Mozilla Firefox is fine, still nothing doing on IE. Maybe putting new members off?

For some weeks I haven't been able to get in using Internet Explorer, but can when I use Mozilla Firefox.

I'm much more of a Strat man, but I wanted to say how beautiful those guitars are. Hope you're enjoying the new one!

I have an ST55 Goldstar and in a fit of foolishness I replaced the original white scratchplate (8-hole, by the way) with a black one: I can't remember the name of the manufacturer, but it wasn't Fender. It fit perfectly. So, subject to correction by others, I'd say you shouldn't have any problem rep...

Nice guitar, Deadman. Similar to my ST40 (below). Though I did swap the original pickups for Wilkinsons, which I found gave me a tone closer to what I wanted. Incidentally, the neck on mine is definitely on the beefy side, especially when compared to those on my ST50 and ST55. How is the neck on you...

Many thanks, ampmaker, for the comments and the advice re posting photos. I was amused that you'd chosen the pic of the mice feeding for the second example: I never thought I'd see that one on the Tokai forum!

Goldstar plastic

A little while ago, I mentioned here that I'd finally found the original scratchplate, pickup covers, volume/tone controls and selector switch for my mid-80s ST55 Goldstar; and also that I was surprised at how dark yellow/cream the controls had become. I posted a link to a pic of the guitar with the...

Hi Suki, since I'm only an occasional poster here this might sound presumptuous, but anyway: welcome!

I can't help with your specific enquiry, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd like to see some pics of your Goldies.

Hi, there was a thread not long ago about another member's ST40, which led to some discussion as to whether genuine ST40 machine-heads were six-sided or five-sided. The matter was never resolved, but as I mention in that thread I have an ST40 which, like yours, features the five-sided variety. The t...
