Hi. Can somebreezy expert please work out what this actual model is, guy seems a bit anti-tokai forum!

Not bothered re value as thats up to me, just not sure how to ensure this is an 80 model.

I love block logo and missed the last one on ebay.

Thanks.

It's probably a TE-50. If it were a TE-80 it would have a nitrocellulose finish and a V-shaped neck, and most likely brass bridge saddles. The graphite nut is not original, but shouldn't radically add or detract from the value. If he claims it is nitro ask if he's confirmed it by testing with acetone. I'd bet money it's not...

You should also ask him to take the neck off for a photo of the neck stamps! And what the stamps on the bottoms of the pickups are....

I'm too scared to ask

TE 50 is a disappointment, I better get reading up on breezies.

Thanks.

Sounds like a lurker of this forum. Probably learned everything he knows about the guitar here. Hope he chokes on his champagne.

I agree, probably a TE50.

nice. i always love how careful buyers who don't want to be ripped off by unscrupulous sellers are "tire [sic] kickers"... while there's CLEARLY nothing wrong with selling something as a higher model than it really is (coincidentally for more money, of course).

i wonder if he were buying would he accept a guitar if it weren't what it was described as? Oh yeah, he said himself in his ebay advert that he was pissed off when it was meant to be mint and it wasn't. Shouldn't that make him a tire [sic] -kicker too? maybe he won't be able to complete the transaction as he won't be able to deal with himself?

According to the oracle (Wikipedia), Tire is older.

But yep, tyre is how the Queen spells it.

looks like a straight 1985 ST50/60 to me. I got 2 of them.

85/86 Logo
serial does not fit any more for 84
headstock slighlty wrong (as far as I can tell from the pics)
Deluxe Tuners
Skunk only to 70% of neck
bridge pup has no strings (as an 80 would have)
neck-curve looks wrong

Very good player, not collectible. CNC.

This is a classic vintage instrument and is priced accordingly, tire kickers or tokai forum fanatics will not get a hearing.

I love the way we're getting some notoriety..!!!
Obviously we have cost the dodgey Ebay sellers out there a few sale lately...this knobjockey included

likely 1,000 or more typed letters & punctuation in the item description, yet barely a word of description about the guitar; just idle rambling & rant

what an irritating cunt .......................
