So I had been trying to sell my '60s Classic Series Strat that was just not doing it for me. After a I put it on Craigslist, a guy offered to trade his '85 Tokai Ate-52 for my Strat because he wanted a cheap Strat to mod. After checking that it was real, I made the trade and I am loving this thing. I wanted to sell the Strat and get a Tele or Hollowbody so this simplified it for me.


I used the serial number and what not to date it to 1985 but I have a question as I can't seem to find information on these: does anyone have a list of specs on them? I think the finish is Nitro because of the way it's worn but I can't be sure.

I'm not sure if it's nitro or not. I'm not that well up on the specs. It seems from the pics it's a 2 piece centre-jointed body, which means it might be one of the higher models (I don't think it'd be an ATE-52, then, though, but I could be wrong).

The tokai registry is really the place to ask about these things. http://www.tokaiforum.com/
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
