But I still have the Tokai tweed case!
I have the switch tip, it had fallen off earlier in the evening and I'd put it in my pocket. Its been on my ST54 for 22 years.
Also very sorry to hear.
Now you've got me curious.
Refret has been beautifully done.
And refinish is almost over ; )
I think mine may be replacements too (kulson with one line/space like tokai originals, but nothing written on them. Deshined look.) But can't find anything like them on the market...
Yes that sounds more like you. ST100s had a factory fitted brass nut? Well I've learned something new today!
I had a green Goldstar ST55 (now sold) with a brass nut & I honestly can't say that it made any difference.
I'd go for Gotoh SD91s, either nickel or for just 25% extra, aged nickel
These SD91 don't have the blank line.

Nut changed for 'set up' reasons, no major influence on sound, at least that's what the luthier told me.
The original brass nut was a little out of spec (worn/altered?) for achieving a precise set up, so he called me up and asked me if he could change it.
I didn't say they did. But as far as I know you can't get the machine heads with the blank line at the moment. Do you want to play the guitar or just look at it? Sometimes you just have to be practical.
I did hear that the quality wasn't great though.
Actually I use it to play cricket.
My concern on that matter is purely scientific.
(I felt for a moment like if I asked Ron Kirn if nitro sounds better than poly ; )
I'll have a look at these... Thanks !
I'll swap it you for a rather nice vintage cricket bat.
Ok, so my ST80 turned 40. With a serial 8000876, she really could be just as old as me, as I was born in april 1978...
Anyway I bought it refinished in fiesta red and now it's 2TS. The wood looks great, I think anyway. It was an original blonde finish so the wood was nice looking when selected.
I changed the plastics for something thicker, less white and not wrapped compared to the original B stamped pickguard.
The neck was refretted (6150) and pleked. They did a great job to get the original fretboard color.
I finally like very much the E pickups and don't find them overly harsh or anything (and I'm rather used to play with Fralin blues special usually).
I'm really glad to have this great player which is "exactly" as old as me. Honestly, you really can't find a better vintage specs'ed stratocaster made anywhere in 1978...And that V shaped neck is just my thing !
Two more years to go and 1980 Tokai SS-36 will be 40 years old!!!
By then it will either need a re fret or maybe a new neck!!!
Yeah... another two years for my ST50.
It won't be the guitar that needs a refurb though.. it'll be the owner..
I like it happy birthyear
