Very nice. It's looks to be an ST-60 (E Pickups and 60 sticker). It's not an '82., otherwise it would be a springy. '83 was the transition point from Springy to Goldstar, but the 83's had block logos (except in Australia). Most likely 84-85, since that's before they dispensed with the brass control ...

Neck is completely legit with Deluxe tuners. I can't see the body stamps but routing is correct for pre-'85. It has replacement electrics and bridge. If it is nitro, it would be worthy of restoring with E pickup assembly, and would probably be an ST-80 if it is 2 piece. Nitro has a habit of 'sinking...

If you're asking if any Tokai is a "Crappy Guitar", I think you're on the wrong forum :) Seriously, apart from the standard pickups, the ST40's are every bit as good to play as the higher models. It seems that you don't have standard ST40 pickuos so this is very very far from a crappy guitar. A good...

If it's a 1980, it will have a model number stamp on the last fret of the fingerboard. The logo will be spaghetti type, and the serial number will be on the headstock and start with a 0. Otherwise, it will be a very faithful replica of the 70's strat: 3 bolt neck, large headstock, cast (not pressed)...

To me, this looks like an ST40 due to the tuners. The pickups have confused me - they have no stamp! The only ones I've seen like this are from Silverstars. However, it's also possible the pickups are not Tokai, but another grey-bottomed make. The standard pickups on ST40s would be ceramic, and many...

I have no idea about the pickups, but this looks to me to be a 90's AST-50.
