The Tokai Silver Star – a True to Spec 70s CBS knockoff

Disclaimer: In this post I refer to Fender and Stratocaster, I want to make it perfectly clear that this guitar is not a Fender, none of the parts are Fender and if Fender come knocking on my door wanting me to re-word anything on this web page then I will do it, no questions asked.

This is my first ever Tokai. It is a beautiful Tokai Silver Star that is in great shape for a vintage Japanese guitar. I am not 100% sure of the date of manufacture, it could be late 79ish or early 80s, but based on the information on the Tokai registry site, because it has the spaghetti logo and the 5 digit serial number it was definitely pre 1982.

In any case it’s a beautiful guitar, it has a good weight to it and plays like a dream.

Let’s have a listen to how she sounds through a Peavey Delta Blues. In the next couple of videos, Darren puts her through her paces.
