Thanks for the great review, Awesome guitar, all the best.

Just one correction.
The TTE55 is not nitro it's poly.

I also commented on the TDP even though I think it's against the rules for a 'dealer' to comment. :D

According to Tokai and the dealer it's nitro...

This seller indeed says so, but is it so? Maybe do a simple acetone test to remove all doubt? :wink:

Let's put it this way, there are no Premium Series TTE 55B models, there's only one model.
I've sold a bunch of them but never as nitro and I have a few in stock...I never bought them as nitro.

With the ATE models you have Vintage and Premium series, Vintage are Poly and Premium nitro.

It's possible the dealer ordered them with a nitro finish...I guess you could confirm with the dealer and ask him to check with Tokai UK if they're in fact nitro.

I'm thinking limited run, here's a (lacquer) Strat version.
