Help with authenticating Breezysound (pics included)

Post by Cav HB » Wed Mar 06, 2019 8:02 pm

How does this look? Seller says it's a MIJ 1984 Breezysound.
Serial number: L24881
I think it's authentic, but not sure.
I know the pickguard is not original, and I also know many of you will think it's backwards! :P
Thanks in advance!

Assuming it is authentic, does anyone know what model Breezysound it is? ie; TTE 50, 70, or 120? From what I have read, it sounds like a TTE 50.
It has an "L" serial number.

It looks like a TTE-55L to me (the price was a little higher for the left handed model).

Hi,

Unscrew the neck. There will be a code on the edge of the neck near the truss rod adjuster. Copy it exactly. Re-tighten neck
Unscrew the control plate and lift out. There should be a code inside the control cavity. Copy it exactly. Rescrew control plate.
Both these codes should match in a pattern like 9=5 BB Z or 10-8 BB X.

Please tell me these codes.
Thank you.
The world will not end today...because it is already tomorrow in Australia.
