Hey LE JUGE..That terada OBG of yours is the twin of mine...are you sure it is a 59 reissue..i think it is a the same model as mine 57C reissue.

Mine is a fujigen built guitar,2 -piece center seamed back.very well matched .
The 57C came with the pickguard fitted ...unlike the 59 reissue.

HOLY ^&*(! That looks like it was made yesterday...It worries me! Kept under a bed or in a cupboard in a case most of its 53 years of life ,i reckon!
If it real then at $149.000 it is a bargain :wink:

At first i though...

I agree with JV,looks like a tokai made guitar from 1985...what does the guitar weigh ,is the body made from mahogany....Hard to tell from your pictures....? Heres a picture of i think MOJOBURSTs tokai lc60 ....with a basswood body... http://i697.photobucket.com/albums/vv335/MWFAY/TokaiLoveRockLC-60...
