2015 Tokai Japan AST-118G Goldstar Stratocaster Translucent White Blonde  & new hard case




Wow! What an absolutely beautiful guitar this is. Made by Tokai Japan in 2015 & in near mint condition.

The guitar is in fabulous condition and is one of a special run made by Tokai. It features a beautiful Ash body, a one piece Maple neck & fingerboard. A white pearloid pickguard compliments the translucent Ash body well & it is loaded with a set of Tokai's own highly rated vintage MK 3 pickups. The gold is mostly untarnished. Only the neck plate showed any signs & this is very minor. All in all a superb guitar from Tokai Japan. Other than having one with a humbucker at the bridge, this was the highest spec Strat from Tokai Japan I could find.

Being a Japanese Tokai, the build quality is superb & the Fretboard radius, at 9.5" (240mm) is flatter, and for me, much more playable than the usual 7.25" vintage radius which can choke out on bends. Really, really like this guitar & I know it won't be around for long.

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. This case can be upgraded to a very nice tweed one but these are an additional £12 each at present.Please contact me before purchasing if you would like this. Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £30 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that i won't ship a guitar in a gigbag

If you are further interested in this guitar, you can either email me with any queries & I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.

Or, you can buy easily and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button. Don't forget to select the right option using the drop down menu on price, i.e. Collection, UK shipping or EU shipping. If in doubt, please email me first as Highlands & Islands can sometimes be a little dearer for shipping
