Thanks guys and Cliff!

Luke, I'm sure everyone has theories. I noticed that guitars that resonate well do it unplugged also. My alder TE80 does. My 2 cents.

1981 TE120

I just bought this insane TE 120 from Cliff. Christmas present for myself. I couldn't resist after getting that 1979 TE80 and playing it. If this guitar sounds as good I may have found my dream guitar. I can't believe how full and resonant the TE80 is. Just wondering how many of these are out there ...

Love the gold hardware with the white paint.

I have a 79 ST100 with an insane flamed neck like yours. Mines a two tone sunburst with nickel hardware.

Thanks brokentoes. I see now where my confusion was, I was seeing the pics Len posted and assumed they were the pics for the OP.

Yep that's this guitar (5420).

What a trip! I need to weigh it. It's light so definitely thinking alder. And the finish looks like nitro, or a very thin poly.

And is there a thread on this? "This guitar has all of the relevant stamps and codes in the neck pocket and pickup cavities and has been verified by forum members on the Tokai Registry as being a very early (possibly first run) TE-80. A very special, very unique guitar. I am only selling because I p...

Just realized looking at these pics that there is a center seam. Does that mean it's not a T80 body??? Grrrrrr

This guitar is awesome! The only downside is the case is junk. Guess now I am on the hunt for a Tokai case if anyone wants to sell one. Here are some pics I took quickly on the way out the door with my cell phone. http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w518/visualvoyage/1979%20Tokai%20TE80%20Breezysoun...

Just got it. Now I know what a Tele is supposed to sound like! Wowza! Just oozes Texas swing.

And the customs fees were $48.

I think I read that earlier today. At first I thought it was the same guitar, but note the serial numbers.
