Looks like 3 piece body in alder with a poly finish. I would say it looks like a 57 re-issue. Has a 1 ply pickguard and 6 screw vintage style tremolo/plate. The newer type Tokai's say "Made in ...

I like the 5 way switchs and want to install a push pull volume pot for the tele style neck/bridge and all 3 pickups on. I just find that much more useful then the standard 3 way switch.

I purchased the guitar from him right before I made this post. For the price even if it was a st-55 it was still a really good deal. I know the saddles are fenders. Did not really see the tremolo b ...

Yeah, I know they have risen a lot in the past 10 years. It seems like there was a big jump in the past year though. I noticed a big article on Reverb.com about a year ago. I guess like everything ...
