nicely faded olympic white st60 and the natural sg is korean (no idea of model number) fitted with one of my favourite humbuckers the 498t in the bridge, sounds awesome. :D

Very nice.

No brass nut or bridge plate on the TE80?

Thanks felixcatus

This TE-80 is a different spec as it has a L before the serial number.
The rosewood on the fretboard is a thin veneer, not a slab like Fenders of 1964, which also had serial numbers that started with a L.
( I have to credit the Tokai Forum "Guru" Peter Mac for this info)

Stamped on the bridge it states "FINAL Pro Spec".

For more info and close up pics on the L-Series TE-80 see this thread:-

I just noticed in your description it?s an 1982 model, I thought it said 1980, my mistake.

Here are my Tokais, both recent models from 2013: ATE82 and LS160. The LP has a set of bare knuckle mules and the tele is still stock.
