Hi CT,

OK, there are a few reasons someone would make a decal - the primary one is that the original has been damaged or removed. SpringySounds are notorious for the decals drying up and flaking of ...

PostForum: Tokai Acoustics   Posted: Tue Jul 16, 2019 9:13 pm   Subject: Tokai Acoustics - how do they compare
Hi guys,

Considering that Tokai were making the C.F.Martin guitars for the World from 1974, I would say they compare extraordinarily well.
I have friends with "original" Martins who fr ...

Hi guys,

so from what I can tell, the TCM series began in 1983 when Tokai seemed to add the 'T' prefix to all its Models and again were 'Tokai C. Martin' replicas but in most models they ended wit ...

Hi CT,

From what I can see in the pics this is probably a 1980 SS-36.
Everything about this looks original - except the serial number and decal which appear to be a replica. Point 1 is the serial ...

Hi mfin,

The 'H' pups are from a TSS-38 SilverStar. Overall they are a replica of 1976 Strat pickups with a lower impedance and non-staggered pole pieces.

Obviously someone has replaced the ori ...

Hi Bikerdude2,

The reason I asked for the body code is the gold doesn't look right to me.
1981 had 1 gold finish - and this one seems closer to Fender Aztec Gold or even Gibson GoldTop.
It could ...

Hi guys,

I'm going for TST-50 due to Black finish. There should be a code inside the control rout.
The 'VII' were only used on TST-50. TST-60 had 'V' pickups, TST-80 had DiMarzio. Mostly the ink w ...

Tremelo spring cover is not original though.

Hi guys,

This IS NOT a Tokai SpringySound - NUNCA!

No Springy EVER had the truss rod adjuster at the nut.
No Springy EVER had a See Through Blue Maple capped body.

The logo is a reproductio ...

Hi Guys,

This appears to be an SS-48 YS from 1982.
Really good guitar and electrics and it looks untouched, so a big bonus.
Does it have a case?

600 would be a fair price for one these IMO. ...
