Hi guys,

The serial number is too early for dimple headstock plus dimple start shallowing over the top of the 'T" not after it.
I think this was a touch of customising. . . . .

So if you've had it from 1984, I would probably think to get a set of Gotoh SD-91 Aged tuners. In that way theyhave the nice patena that normally takes Years to achieve.

Hi guys,
Well that top is definately veneer. No mistake.
It looks like a TLS-60 however TLS-60's in 1984 didn't have veneer tops . . .
so try this . . .
1) remove the front pickup and take a pho ...

_JDZ, no, I don't believe so.
In the 1,000s of pre-1980 Springys and SilverStars I have catalogued, I have never seen this at the end of a fingerboard.
If Tokai were to have used an extra stamp, it ...

Hi #44,

I think it is an optical illusion, but the plates are the same size. I have measured them with vernier calipers.
The screw spacing however is different. From 1981 onwards, Tokai employed a ...

It depends on the Model....
ST-55 and lower have chrome, ST-60 and higher have Nickel or Gold.

PostForum: Tokai Guitars   Posted: Fri Oct 12, 2018 9:56 am   Subject: WHY Do Tokai & Tokai Sellers List Jacaranda as Brazilian
Hi guys,

this is an interesting thread, I must say.
The reason they may list it as 'Jacaranda' and not Brazilian Rosewood could be because of Appendix III of the 1974 C.I.T.I.E.S. Treaty which vi ...

If this an 1981 ( which the serial number and body stamp placing suggest then the electrics have been swapped out.
The stamping of 'A' or 'B' on the scratchplate was discontinued in Early 1980 and as ...

It means someone put it there for some stupid reason.
This was not done at the factory.
It was done using 4 strikes as opposed to the '80' which is one go.
It also appears larger than the number w ...

You could also look in the control cavity where the production stamp is.
That would also give an indicator depending on the letters used.
Looking at the Alder body, it's a pretty safe bet this is a ...

Hi guys,
This is indeed a 1980 LS-50 made in the Nagano factory, not Hamamatsu. Apart from the Serial number, the double cream, double pole uncovered pickups are also an indicator of the age of this ...
