Tokai ST50 Springy Sound - Made in Japan 1978
Tokai guitars are considered the best copies and are among the most sought after Japan Stratocaster guitars. This is a very early ST50 Springy Sound from the year 78. An exact replica of a 50s Strat.
The condition is very good, playing feels great. From the outside, body, neck and frets, it is very clean. Unfortunately, a small, invisible routing was made on the body, from the control unit to above the volume button, a kill switch was installed there. However, the routing is not bad and was left as it is and can be used for smuggling ;-)
A new pickguard is installed, exactly copied from the original one. The pickups (U-stamped) and the brass plate under the control unit are original. The wiring is completely rewired with Emerson Custom Pro CTS electronics according to the 50's specifications with vintage style cloth wire and paper in oil capacitor.
