Thanks for the post. Marcus, who, in your opinion, makes the best MIJ Tele's?

ok....i understand what you're saying but i'd imagine it would very difficult to get a sunburst finish from an off white finish?????


Starting around 1963 (or 64) the middle section of the burst is pretty much solid yellow, so it's not like you see the wood grain any longer like on 50s strats. From there it's not too much of a stretch to paint a sunburst on top of a solid white coat.

Yeah...probably right.....I don't recall seeing any grain through the yellow area.......Bass is long gone now but i remember it had a very heavy finish (off white and sunburst as I understand now)

Tonewise and soundwise this didn't seem to make any difference as it had a tremendous sound

I'll have to defer that answer to others.... I'm not really a Tele guy. I've owned two Tokai Breezy's.... both good. I have a Fender USA 52 reissue and a Bacchus vintage series Tele..... both are excellent.
