Seems like the bridge is not quite fitting, the Heavy E is running towards the outer edge of the fretboard higher up.
Maybe it just looks that way in the photo and perspective fools me..

Nice guitar! Great condition.

I think it just needs the neck screws loosening a bit and the neck pushing down the way to align everything up.

Sorry guys, it is a for sale thread, not a discussion about the model..
It is a TE80 for sure!
Nitro finish with no doubt, soft V neck.

well I think we are allowed to question the model when it has a 2 piece body and that seems to be different to the specs for an 80?

it may well be an 80 but it seems normal to question it, when in my experience they are usually 1 piece ...... i may well be wrong, but the point needs to be established.. there is no stamp, no sticker and no real evidence that its an 80... does it havethe TEA pups ? that would help to confirm it.... for me an 80 is a 1 piece body, TEA stickered pups brass plate and hopefully something indicating 80 either a stamp or a sticker somewhere, without any of those its up for questioning...
