I can't see....

It's on its way from Hawaii, and should be here in a day or two I bet.

Hi guys,

Felix did you realise your selector switch has been changed.
The original Tokai selector is on Sigmania's TE-120 but yours appears to be a U.S. made variety.

Through trial and error, I have found that one can dismantle and repair the old Tokai ones back to new - not just throw them away

Peter

I didn't knew that. But, I have seen a few more Breezy's with the same type (as mine) of switch.

Same as yours I guess..sen ash. Looks like its been refinished and a strat pup in the neck. Haven't got it yet.
listing said there was no extra routing done except the pick guard was cut to fit the pick up.
Have to wait and see.

I couldn't resist after getting that 1979 TE80 and playing it. If this guitar sounds as good I may have found my dream guitar. I can't believe how full and resonant the TE80 is.

after playing the TE80. What an amazing rage of tones!


Your TE80 has 250K pots,right? You're gonna have to roll back the tone on the bridge pickup with those 1Meg pots.

Yes felixcatus, 250k on the TE80.

I have no idea what the Tokai pickups are. The bridge is marked TE A on the TE80. The neck pickup is unmarked.

Haven't seen the p'ups in the TE120 yet.

Here is a pic from the TE80.

From what I remember, the bridge pu is also TEA.
