Hi everyone, a friend gave me her Tokai Goldstar Sound.

I need some help to find information available about the guitar.
(year, origin, price...)

I believe the serial number is NC403164.

What you say:
Should I trash it?
Sell it?
Or save it for when my son becomes a teenager?

I put some image on imgur:

I wouldn't trash it myself but these guitars are not from Tokai. As far as i know all tele shaped Tokais are called "Breezysound", the Strat shaped Tokai's are called "Goldstar" Or "Springy" Sounds.

I'd set it up and see how she plays

Thank you for the reply.

I'm no expert with guitars, so as far as I can tell it sounds quite good.

I found this one which seems pretty similar:
https://reverb.com/item/516647-tokai-goldstar-sound-52-reissue-tele-telecaster-style-guitar-butterscotch-w-fender-std-gig-bag

The link says:
Model: '52 Reissue Telecaster
Year: 2002
Made In: Korea, Republic of

Can I trust it to be the same generation?

I'd bet you are onto something there, most of these first came out of Korea.

I like the grey/maple combo i must say.

If anyone can help with more information. Since the registry website is down, it's been hard to find more about the guitar and I would like to sell it.

Mérci.
