looks like it's a Tokai

what does the lettering say before the ow in the control cavity?


Take the neck off and post photo's of the end of the neck by the truss rod screw.

Also include a photo of the bridge saddles and the rear of the pickups

Everything Chris said sounds right. It's unlikely to be a Tokai scratchplate as it's one of those fake mint-green types that some people love. As well as the pickups, let us see the controls - the switch & pots. Tokai switches are quite distinctive.

As for the neck, it looks like a cap board - common for Tokais, rare for Fenders. Are you sure you can't see any shadowing from the original decal under the Fender decal?

Where did you get the Fender decals shown with your pictures? I'm needing some.
