Re: Tokai Breezysound identify

The strange thing is that I can not see any stamp on the body, or I might not look the right place. Try the control cavity. (and let no one tell you they 'always' have to match, they could but 'don't have to' match for a Tokai neck and body to be original!) :wink: Can any one tell me the precise ye...

Re: Breezysound TE70 81-82
