This is a repost becaue I've been unable to find out much about this guitar at all. I now think it's a Tokai JTE model but still have no idea of when it was made or the exact model number, the information follows.. does anybody know if it's a rare tokai cause I haven't met anybody with a similar guitar to mine : )

I'd say it looks like a variation of the JTE50 here:

So its probably from around the same sort of time (1989).

Never seen one before. I reckon its got to be rarer than things like Golstars and Breezys, which seem to crop up quite regularly (in the UK at least).
