My AST-62 was $279 with case (no tax) in 1986.

Standard grey bottoms with the large ink-stamped "E". I've seen other early-80s era grey bottoms with other letters. These pickups are among the best I've ever had in a Strat and wouldn't mind shopping for another set or a guitar with these in it. No pics at the moment and I'm gigging the guitar reg...

No one? Hmmm-that's surprising. Anyone have info or can direct me to the letter codes on the bottoms if these pickups?

It all comes down to collectibility. These have always been sought after and played by big name players. My 75 Destroyer was one of the best guitars I've ever owned. I really miss that guitar.

These Strats were available in several finishes-I had a natural one with maple board with the small head and four bolts-bought new in 82. Not one of the lousy two-knob Strats-this one wasn't bad. http://smg.beta.photobucket.com/user/serial/media/image_zpsd5593e34.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 My guess is that...

You need to replace the tone knob with a correct one though!! ;)

I still have the neck, control plate and bridge pickup from my paisley Breezysound. Got mine in Early 85 and it had the pointed headstock, but old Breezysound logo.

"E" series grey bottoms Q

What year were these produced. I have a set that came in my '78 lefty Fender Strat and I love them. The happiest I've been with a Strat sound since, oddly enough, my '86 Tokai AST-62 that I bought new (in bright opaque yellow, no less!) in 86. Been a Tokai fan since 85-my first Breezysound...

I read the post from the guy who claimed to have designed it but I've never heard of any Jim Walker. I have heard of Jack Westheimer who was responsible for about fifty zillion different Japanese/Asian brands such as "Teisco", "Kingston" and "CORTez". Westheimer was the guy who had Pearl continue t...
