My First Tokai - 1981 TE50

Post by Lofty » Sun Feb 21, 2021 4:06 am

Hi all. I'm exited about buying my first Tokai, also my first Tele and first vintage guitar. Haven't got it yet. It was described as a 1981 TE50, and I don't doubt that, but I'm curious that the dating page doesn't mention 7 digit neckplate numbers. Sadly the headstock is no help because someone changed the sticker. The bridge has been changed too. I'll be on the lookout for a 6 barrel one, even if it's not genuine. So far the ones I've seen that have low sides have 3 mounting screws, not 4. I guess there's been some bodging with that bridge install.
