SS-60 should have:

- Long sustain bridge with brass saddles

- These tuners

Image

- Pickups would be SS Super, not sure if they had a stamp on them. SS Hot had an H stamped on them.

Image

- Original pickguard would be white on an SS-60

The neck plate looks like a generic 'made in Japan' plate which was used on many makes of guitar in the '80s, i.e. Hondo.
Whatever it is, it could be good.
It could've been made in the Tokai factory, but doesn't look like a Tokai.
Who put the bop in the bopshuwopshuwop?
7okai did.
