Tokai Goldstar Sound Made in Japan strat MIJ electric guitar 1988 80’s

USED 80’s Tokai Goldstar Sound Made in Japan

One owner since 1992.
Here we have a great opportunity to own a late 80’s Tokai Strat. It’s in pretty good condition with a fantastic sound and feel. Very desireable!! Comes with a homemade but good quality metal rectangular full flight case.

Detailed description:
Guitar condition is about 7-10 and a good overall condition.
The worst bit is there’s a large amount of paint missing on the rear due to buckle rash. Very noticeable. Throgh to the wood.
There’s also several other dents and scratches.
I have taken a photo of the worst one at the bottom edge but the guitar does have numerous dents and scratches.
Paint looks original.
Under the scratchplate there is a painted date stencil bearing the date 1988.
No extra routing.

The rear of the neck has some dents here and there, about right for a well gigged guitar of this age.
No breaks.
Tuners look original, tarnished and working OK.
Nut looks original, and in good working condition.
Frets are worn with about average wear and tear. Loads of life left in them. They look original.

Look original.
3 way switch and pots all look about right and old enough looking to be original.
New USA Switchcraft jack socket fitted by us.
The old one wasn’t original anyway.

The trem has been set up so that it is touching the body but is set to be used for gentle use, not massive dive bombs and is working pretty good with reasonable tuning stability.

Hardware: These saddles are old and tarnished and rusty. They look original.
They are rusted but actually still in good working order.

Playability – like all guitars here at Guitar Mania this guitar has been set up by our legendary Jon our in-house tech and we can confirm that the action and intonation has been checked and adjusted and has brand new Fender 9-42 gauge strings. It currently has a pretty low action which is how we like it.

HARD CASE – this guitar comes with a very nice home made hard case. It’s wooden shell but fully covered in metal ie ‘full flight’. Fairly good condition.
