Does the vintage series use a flame maple veneer?



Yes, it's very thin. Check the grain lines and the joint in the middle of the top - you'll see they don't match up with the wood inside the pic ...

Being in an unplayable condition lowers the value too. You could say the damage is already done. Get it fixed up in the original style by someone good. It's a restoration, not an alteration.

The tenon is not short. It's medium, which is standard on Japanese guitars. It extends to the end of the fretboard but not into the cavity. It has the same merits as a 'true' long tenon but it's not h ...

CTS pots are 10<20% tol depending on whether they are audio or taper,

What country are you in?

Are there any better pictures available?

It looks Korean, which fits the date range. It's not a Zakk model - Tokai never made one. He's just stuck some EMG's in a bog st ...
