does anyone have info (specs, pics etc.) on the breezysound rosewood telecaster? did they only make the a "real" rosewood (like the '69-'72 original fender that george harrison used) or also a look-a-like with a rosewood sort of paint on the body?

as far as i have seen. all these just look like rosewood and are actually just a dark shaded finish on non-rosewood wood. only the fingerboards on these guitars are actual rosewood. which to me for some reason is actually cooler than if they were real rosewood. the great pretender of sorts, "show business", etc.

Hi Igman,

the rosewood Tele had 2 versions:
TE200 : solid rosewood body and 1 pce rosewood neck (no fingerboard)

TE60 : stained Alder body and black painted neck with rosewood board.

One is much rarer than the other......neither were made after 1985 that I am aware of.

thanks for the info!
is it possible that the te200 came with the vintage style 3-saddle bridge and the te60 with the 6-saddle bridge?

If anyone is interested, I have a friend in Birmingham UK, selling a mint condition 1996 Fender Japan Rosewood Telecaster. It is the solid rosewood body and neck model (not veneer). I have seen & played it and it is just fantastic. Enquiries to seller (Bob Barry) 0121 772 4873.

Hi Bobtastik,

the rosewood Teles all listed in the UK are the TE-60 model.

Trust me on this.

If Tokai still made the solid rosewood guitar, it would be the TE-320 RR.
