Re: 1981 Telecaster style with trem/humbuckers

It looks great. I’m no expert, but it does have a ‘super/custom edition’ feeling about it. It’s something that Tokai probably went “we’ve got all these bits left, what should we do with them”. It looks to have a ‘V’ profile neck - is this correct? Everything is proper for 1981, so you’ve got a rare ...

Re: 1983 Breezysound identification

Nice.
Block logo late 1982 - early 1983.

Re: Help dating my Tokai Breezysound tortoise shell

I think your assumptions are correct.
Other than posting photos of the internals, pickups, routings, etc, the bits you’ve shown all point to an early/mid eighties guitar. My ‘guess’ is 1984/5.
Disclaimer: Of course, all my opinions are my own - and may be wrong. 😬

Re: Anyone else seen this?

My guitar is unique, then.
That’s put a few quid on it.
Happy days. 👍

Re: Need help verifying a potential purchase

It’s just everything points to it being something else, such as a Squier.
The neck plate has a plastic ‘under plate’, like a Squier.
The pick guard isn’t a TOKAI, due to the colour.
Some photos of the body routing and electronics would also help.

Re: Need help verifying a potential purchase

I’m sorry, but it doesn’t look correct, in my opinion.
I’d avoid it.
Logo is not quite right, neck plate is wrong, scratch plate is wrong, bridge saddles aren’t right. Mmm, it would be nice see inside.

Anyone else seen this?

80’s neck with round laminate rosewood board.
Double side dot markers - mistake or because it was a painted neck?
Surely someone else has seen this?

Re: New/Old Super Edition purchased - photos added - advice needed

I personally love the guitar just by looking at the photo. I imagine it's really nice to play a song with it !! I love it, due to all it’s flaws. It has double side dot markers where it looks like they’ve been added, and then the neck has been chosen to paint, and they’ve re-done them. I’d love if ...

Re: New/Old Super Edition purchased - photos added - advice needed

Yeah, thanks, everything looks legit, it’s just I have no idea about pickups (whether they’re any good), or how old it is. I’m guessing 1985-6 because of the rosewood laminated neck. The Tokai stamped saddles may well have been left over from earlier years. It seems the whole guitar is made up of va...

Ok, the guitar has arrived and I really would like your thoughts.
Neck seems Tokai to me, but I’m not familiar with body routings on these models.
Any comments would be welcome.

Re: Moon Custom Stratocaster 90s

The round laminated fingerboard may date this guitar to the 80’s.

New/Old Super Edition purchased - photos added - advice needed

Okay, I’ve bought a somewhat beat up, Strat type Super Edition from eBay and will post some pics and links up when I receive it. My first questions are: Has anyone ever sanded the paint finish off the back of a Tokai neck. The one I’ve bought has been sanded off and has double side dot markers. I th...
