    That’s a good shiner. I’m fine with dings and scratches it adds character for sure. But ya he wants a lot for it.

    Remember that the Tokai will have a 7.25" radius and small vintage style frets.

    You think that Squier Tele is worth $600? I'd have made that trade in an instant.

    Yes, that is what the market has decided, based on sold listings. It is widely believed that they only made 250. I haven't seen a Black CVC sell for less than 500 in probably over a year. They aren't worth that to me, personally, but I can't argue with the data.

    Looks like new switch and not sure about the pots but has correct pickups looking for a pick guard.

    man lol idk it looks ok but mint green would set it on fire I might have a aged white one from a 80s Japan fender I’m gonna see if it will fit. But yes I’m gonna plug it in shortly and hear the tones!

    Yep I saw it’s oaks switch. I’m fine with small things like that. Just need a different pickguard I’m not a pearloid type of guy

    Defiantly has a good vintage strat type sound. Stainless frets are awesome. A super resonate guitar as well. It’s a keeper for me. I have a 94 fender MIM black label I’m looking to swap for something else now
