This is a vintage 1984 Tokai Goldstar Sound “ST70 MRR” electric guitar in virtually NOS, like new, all original condition. This particular Lawsuit Era example, featuring a 1950’s Fender Strat headstock profile, is in immaculately excellent 100% all original condition and includes; an era appropriate hard shell case along with the original whammy bar. Many Japanese companies disregarded International trademark, and fashioned their designs a little too closely to their American counterparts. Resulting in the now infamous Lawsuit Era MIJ guitars, this short-lived period offered uncomfortably close copies of their more expensive inspirations, while also providing accurate and comparable instruments for much less money. This particular example is a original owner instrument, having been purchased new from Guitars’R’Us on Sunset Blvd. Take a moment to appreciate the detailed photos illustrating just how well preserved this Tokai Goldstar remains after 30 years since being purchased new!

This ’84 Goldstar features: a Strat-style contoured Ash body, the original red (Candy Apple Red inspired) finish, a Maple neck with black dot inlays, (3) single coil Strat style pickups, adjustable Strat style tremolo system, Deluxe Kluson-style tuning machines, the original whammy bar, and an era appropriate hard shell case purchased new with the guitar.
In exceptional cosmetic condition, this guitar does not appear to have been played nor used, and was most likely stored within the included case for the entirety of its existence. It works great, sounds good, and would be a really great collector’s quality vintage instrument for Lawsuit-era enthusiasts.
