I had been haunting a vintage and used guitar shop here in DC for a Fender '52 tele reissue when I stumbled upon the Tokai. I plugged it in and was amazed...In my humble opinion, this guitar sounds better than the Fender model, hands down!

I have surmised at this point that the guitar was made in about 1985. I am wondering tho

1) How many of these were made?

2) The serial number on this pup is 22031. Am I correct in my summation that this is indeed a Japanese model?

Any feedback ould be greatly appreciated.
