    Hi. I bought this Tele Body along with a load of some other parts, so have no idea of where it came from .
    Hope someone can help me . The only marks are on the neck pocket 3TS, which i assume means 3 tone sunburst, so does this mean it's been resprayed ?
    I'd appreciate any comments / advice
    Thanks
    Eddie

    Not 100% certain but the drilled hole with the small route hole for earthing the bridge plate is something you find on early Tokai
    The strap button if original also looks like something off a Japanese guitar

    I believe the strap button is one of the Schaller strap lock buttons

    Looks kinda like my allegedly MIK fiesta red Tele? Does yours have a panel on back?

    Hi guys Thanks for your replys. The Tokai theory sounds good ! Bravescoob, No panel on back 2019-04-18 10.59.16-1.jpg
