    not much info..(like usual with MIJ's from 30 years ago) but apparently they where made in Kobe Japan till an earthquake wiped out the plant...by most accounts well made guitars ...

    there is a few pics of another tele model in this link...looks a bit newer than yours

    I think you made a good deal on a rare old guitar and it's unlikely you'll ever lose money on it...rock on

    It is the same as a Tele copy that I had labeled as a National FT-440, none of the parts off of a Fender Tele will fit on it. The control plate also has the output jack on it and that gets in the way if you don't have a 90 degree cord. They are not high quality guitars... the bridge and saddle are very cheap, it is not a string through. The bridge pickup was replaced on mine before the store sold it to me because it was dead. There are no parts on it that are as good as a MIM Tele. I think I sold mine for $250 or $300 on ebay.

    If you collect obscure Asian guitars (and there are lots of folks who do), it'd be an interesting find. But, if you're looking for a decent Tele for $200, there are more choices out there now, than ever before. Especially in the used market.

    True enough. I think I'll pass on this thing
