The bridge and saddles aren't original, are they? I thought 80s had the brass plate with 6 individual saddles.

If you look in the 1982 Tokai Catalogue on these very pages you can see that they had steel bridges w three brass 3 saddles and not 6. And as I'm the previous owner I know it has 'final prospec' stamped on the bridge and correct markings in the pickup cavities etc.

...and again: This is an awesome tele and I honestly can't see how you can get something better without spending a fortune

Thanks, I didn't know they switched the bridges to the three saddle one. Nice tele for sure!
