    Could be. I don't know if FujiGen was making the Tokais back then. They're both based off of '70s Strats, so there's bound to be a strong resemblance. Your Tokai is killer, also.

    Fender was pretty heavily involved with the start-up of their Japanese line, which initially used a lot of USA Fender parts. They kind of did the same thing that Jackson did--made the Japanese line a little too much like their USA guitars in terms of hardware and quality.

    Tokai was building their own, so probably not, but I'll bet the hardware and pickups are the same.

    Except the tuners, which are spectacularly shitty.
