About This Listing

Here we have a 1970s Tokai Silver Star in very good vintage condition. It has the typical playwear you’d expect of a 40+ year old guitar, including some dings and scratches but no breaks or major chips. It has that distinctive 3-tone sunburst we see on a lot of vintage guitars of the 60s and 70s. Overall, this is a nice looking guitar, and importantly, it also plays and sounds great. All original except for an added Bone nut; replaced pickguard, and replaced pickups. The original pickups are included, however, so that’s nice.

Basic Specs: Nickel 70’s Fender-style tuners. 1 9/16 inch Bone nut. Maple neck with traditional Fender scale length of 25.5 inches. Slim profile with a depth of .82 inches at the first fret and .87 inches at the twelfth fret. Rosewood fingerboard with 21 frets and a 7.25 inch radius. Lindy Fralin Vintage Hot pickups have been installed. MIJ 250K pots. Vintage-style tremolo system with original whammy bar. Replaced pickguard.

Set up in-house (as are all our guitars) and playing great. If you’ve been looking for an older Tokai, you found it. Comes with a non-original hardshell case.
