    Hey Guys,

    Few months ago I sold my Fender Telecaster TLG-70 and it was my mistake.

    I have just bought new one and it is Tokai TTE-70, but I am still waiting for shipping.

    Do you know this model? I can not find any info on the internet.

    Seller said that, this model was produced mainly for his shop.

    I know that this guitar is made in Japan, and there are Tokai Vintage MKII pickups.

    - Ash body

    - Maple neck

    - Maple fingerboard

    What do you think about new Tokai Guitars? Are they good?
    Can we compare Tokai's do Fender's?

    The price is circa about 550-600$

    Thanks again!

    might be the perspective but looks like the strings are not aligned really well in this model...

    Hi, I believe what Catawompus ment was that in this picture if you look at the strings the 1 string seems a bit too much near the fretboards edge.

    But this can be due to how the picture was taken.

    If the shop is keen to maybe ask them if you can have some more pics so we can chime in.

    Cheers

    Hi, it still seems the 1st string is way to near to the edge of the fretboard, can you post a picture tha includes the bridge and a portion of the neck ?

    Maybe the saddles bneed a little alignment.

    Cheers

    Looks pretty good. If it was me, I might loosen the neck bolts and bump the headstock over a teensy bit towards the big strings...

    Yeah, it looks like you might have to adjust the neck a little.

    Get a local guitar tech to give it a set up.....congratulations on the new Breezysound....great Telecasters the made in Japan Tokai Breezysounds.
    In the UK the Tokai Breezysound has quite a following and a lot of respect
    and while most remain stock many custom upgrade the pickups with a set
    of Bare Knuckle scatterwounds.

    Yup i agree &

    This would also be something that I would advice, a guitar with a proper setup, string height & size does a lot.

    cheers and enjoy that beauty

    It looks to me as though the saddles are angled slightly toward the treble side. I'd loosen the strings and push the saddles toward the bass side to straighten them out, before messing with the neck.

    By the way... where did you buy your guitar? There's a store in Switzerland claiming they have the Tokai TTE-70 made specially for them.

    I am from Poland. Do you like me still xD?

    Btw. Thanks for your help guys. This telecaster is absolutley amazing! It sounds really good. I am sure that is better choice than new Fender from Mexico.

    Catawompus - what is the price of TTE-70 in this shop ?:)
