The string tree is closer to the nut on yours, in between the "A" & "D" strings

On mine it's between the "D" & "G".

The decals are placed around the string trees.

Your headstock has the more traditional "F" style profile

Gotta love old school hand assembly, I guess...

@claudel, what finish does it have?

"Original" TEB pup and 1 piece body?

Neck pickup TE5? Probably also TEB.

>> @claudel, what finish does it have?

Wine Red, I'd guess nitro, but I'm not 100% sure

>> "Original" TEB pup and 1 piece body?

Pretty sure it's all original. I've had it since the early/mid 90's and only changed out the controls a few months ago

>> Neck pickup TE5? Probably also TEB.

Not completely sure. That letter is smudged...

As far as I know, when all original both pups are either TEB or TEA.

I'm kind a surprised to find TEB pups in a one piece nitro finished body. I'm not saying that it's impossible, just surprised.

As far as I know, that neck has always been with the rest of it...

I'd be surprised if it is a 1pc body
AFAIK, only TE-80 and above were ever 1 pc

If there are seams in the body, they're invisible...

Tokai are very good at hiding them.
