  • Japanese copy of strat sold for over $1000. Worth it?

    I had my eye on this auction for a Tokai strat copy. I thought maybe I could score it for 5 bills, but it ended for  $1,150. Damn!

     

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Tokai-ST-80-GS-Springy-Sound-/360621378070?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STR K%3AMEWAX%3AIT&nma=true&si=6lrn4OSlcWsgUDioXQ82PbN iEp4%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

    I love how the headstock label looks almost identical.

    Are these selling for high dollars because of it's collectability? Are they really as good as american fender strats or is it hyperbole?

    They are great guitars - comparable to the first of the JV series from Fender Japan

      One factor for selling well probably are the excellent detailed pictures. I, myself, would feel reassured with buying it untried. Beautiful strat it is. There is also definitely something special about it compared to a run-of-the-mill "standard" Fender strat
