A 1984 showing 'crazing lines'
Nitro on my TE, ST and LS.
Fries are not French!
I'm regularly pulling out stuff!
As I said before, It does for Tokai devotees, when it's a 'higher end' tokai model that comes with original 'E' pick ups and Tokai stamped tuners!...
What model number was it? Surely not a ST80 or higher model number Springy?
I ask, because I think you are comparing a 'higher end' American...
Right, it seem one has to be into Tokai to fully grasp it's value. Change out original pre '83 parts or cosmetics, even when it does not come down...
It very much depends on what TE model (higher number, higher specced) it is, e.g. a TE80 with TEA pickups and Tokai stamped tuners would...
The (bolted neck) Tokais I've had did not have these cracks, and all had tight neck pockets, very tight to 'Fender norms'.

'Breezysound' ain't bad either. ;)
Tokai TE80R Breezy, 'V' shaped neck with a rosewood board. Not many (standard produced) tele's out there with this configuration!
Here you can hear it in a 'live' setting and 'not so clean'.
Here are some pieces pasted together. Recorded with a Sony PCM-M10 (only recording device I have).
I used the built-in microphones, so please...
I play (stage/gig/jam) a twilighter 1X12 RI for some time now.
Right, for the 'big name' manufacturers it's mainly about economics IMO, more time consuming and higher cost.
I keep reading "one piece are more prone to warping"! Anyone who states this actually seen one, since "Fender one piece bodies are rare" (also...
