Yep, 100% - they don't have gold screws for pole pieces in them.
And, a sticker with a barcode in 1985? Don't think pickup makers went that far in the early 80s, so the pickups are probably more modern.

The neck pickup/tenon area looks almost identical to yours Mojo, except for the nice and convenient unpainted bit that shows the model number on your guitar!

So a guitar with a mysterious history and some signs to prove it, but likely to be a pretty good axe!

Thanks MOJO, our guitar looks preety much alike. So the body must've been repainted as well. except for the pickup, hardwares also looked identical. Is your stoptail aluminum also?[/quote]

Yeah that looks more like what it would have had!

It's not a Orville or OBG, it's a Tokai, it has Tokai routing holes in the pickup cavities.
