I have searched enough to know that I have not seen a Tokai with a matching painted headstock... albeit I do NOT have any real experience with Tokai. So a buddy of mines Dad was paid for a gig with this guitar... I'm trying to get it road worthy again, I know it's an early 80's Tokai (correct me if I am wrong please). 113669 Is the six digit (possible 70's??) neck plate number. It has the three saddle "FINAL prospec" bridge (japanese? Korean?) Any help at all would be appreciated... If you do not see the pictures up just yet I am trying to figure that out....

6 digits means post 84 Japan Breezysound.This guitar was originally natural finish judging by wood under the bridge.Both body and headstock have been resprayed with some kind of metal flake car paint.The neck has a glued on fingerboard ,so it is a TE 70 model.

Paint job reminds me of Tokai's sparkle finish. Those were the days lol.
