You could also look in the control cavity where the production stamp is.
That would also give an indicator depending on the letters used.
Looking at the Alder body, it's a pretty safe bet this is a ...

Hi guys,
This is indeed a 1980 LS-50 made in the Nagano factory, not Hamamatsu. Apart from the Serial number, the double cream, double pole uncovered pickups are also an indicator of the age of this ...

Hi guys,

This is quite a nice find, an original AST-56 in Snow White.
The body is Alder and the stamps are for production and verify that the neck was made for this body (4=6), the colour (SW= S ...

Hi guys,

Just to add . . .

Hi guys,

OK so go to the American Stevie Ray catalog to find this guitar.
In 1985 in order to sell into the U.S. market, Tokai had to alter the headstocks slightly to avoid copyright infringement ...

Hi,

Well yes, some did - but not with Maple necks and not in 1982.
Looking at all the features that are shown in the photos, it looks like a TE-50 to me.
Things like saddles, string tree, pla ...

Hey

M2001 had 3 x EMG Single coil size active pickups
The M2002 has 2 x EMG Humbucker - although yours appear to be changed to a regular set ...

Hi guys,

To me it looks like a 1982 TE-50 BL (Blonde)
The 6 saddle bridge is the best indicator, plus the serial number style (1958) with the spaghetti logo was only used in 1982 on Maple neck gui ...

Hi guys,

1984 Models have moustache headstocks - no dimples.
All MIJ models have a 2-screw Truss rod cover - Korean models have 3-screw.
TLS-60 were plain top models - not flame veneer.

Thanks,
that's my bad. I couldn't make the serial out properly but do have an ST-65 MGR listed in my database with serial 1022688 so thought this must be the same one.
Now I have 2 x MGR ST-65.
