Hi. Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to offer me in dating this instrument. I have seen other posts here about dating 80's Schecter Teles and I'm wondering if, since the last go round, anyone has either gone further down the rabbit hole or cracked the code. I have had this guitar since the mid 80's. I bought it in Houston, TX. It came with a locking system that I hated so I pulled it off and replaced it with a simple Badass. Here are some photos to help. Thanks again!
