    Yeah. On the bright side, I do remember some parts of 'sharp dressed man' from playing it once! :);)

    Picked this up a few years ago on my travels of the UK. Think I got a bargain. Let me local luther check it over and he was amazed by the tone of the pickups.

    I think it's an AST45? I can't recall. Says Special Edition on the headstock and I think it dates around 1984.

    Great fun.

    Evening all, I'm not from round these parts, and this is my first post. I'm off to look at a Goldstar tomorrow and was wondering if anybody might be able to offer some advice regarding date please? I've trawled the net and only managed to confused myself. Some pictures follow, I don't have any photos from under the pick ups, scratch guard or neck heel etc received_451169128844990.jpg received_448913169141163.jpg received_2982493578496494.jpg received_1721094831355046.jpg . FWIW i'm in the UK.

    Hi and welcome.

    Sorry for the late reply. My best guess would be one of the more recent (newer) models, anno 2016?
    Mind you all the 'recent newer' models I've seen have their serial number (first two numbers indicate production year, once again!) located on the neck heel?
    They also were all MIJ, maybe this one is MIC?

    Did you buy it?

    Notice; Breezy is (slowly) losing its place in hierarchy, (those who know me know what that means! o_O), that LSReborn is some piece of wood!

    Every Tokai LP-type I ever had was really good, and that includes a couple of Korean ones. I used to trade around the £300-£450 range, but the market has woken up to what they are really worth. The one I really wish I'd hung onto was the very first Korean model, which the company showed at the NAMM show in the US. It was a wonderful player, had flame bigger than tiger's stripes, and I had the original sale receipt that verified what it was. The serial number area on the guitar was blank. I think I probably paid £250 in about 1998.
