2020 Tokai Japan AST-95 Goldstar Stratocaster 2 tone Sunburst & new hard case
£649.00 + shipping
Here's a really nice Japanese Stratocaster. Made by Tokai Japan in 2020 & in superb condition. It bears an uncanny resemblance to Fender Japan's ST-57 guitar but has one or two differences
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. It has a 2 piece Alder body & it is loaded with a set of Tokai's own highly rated vintage MK 3 pickups. All in all a superb guitar from Tokai Japan. Really, really like this guitar & I know it won't be around for long.
Here's some info and specs I found online:
The Tokai AST-95 is a homage to one of the most revered guitar designs of all time. Combining features players loved from the guitars inception with refinements from later years of production, the AST-95 is every ST lovers dream come true. A true workhorse with unparalleled functionality, tone and feel; the AST-95 features two piece alder body, one piece maple neck with Maple fingerboard, vintage style 6-in-line tuners, ST-VK2 bridge with solid block tremolo and ST-Vintage MK3 pickups.

Comes with Thomann Black 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 £50 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 quickly and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button and I will ship to most UK addresses the next working day. Highlands and Islands can be slightly dearer but I'll keep the cost as low as I can.
I can accept credit card payments by phone and will also offer a small discount to purchasers using bank transfer payments.
Overseas customers are very welcome but please email me first for shipping quotes.
