Take a look at this Breezysound:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=873673292

Difficult to see as the pics are so small and fuzzy but could it be an all rosewood TTE200? Its got a dark headstock face and back of neck. The seller reckons its an 83. Could just be black paint, but might be worth an email if you're in Europe. If it is, and you get it, you owe me big time!

OK, I've mailed him, so, provided that the seller's English is better than my German, we should find out soon.

Heres what I asked:

Heres the seller's reply:

Hallo,
the headstock is painted rosewood.
the body is roewood or ash painted.
the logo is written in handwriting style.
all parts original.
the bridge 6-way. its a custom model.
best regards
wolfgang

Looks like its going to be difficult to tell for definite what it is, unless the seller can get some good close-up pics. Maybe it was a custom order - who knows?. Still, it sounds like a 7okai era guitar.
