1981 Tokai Breezysound$899.00
Here’s a groovy one, we haven’t seen a Breezysound in ages. Essentially a high-quality Fender Telecaster copy but with a basswood body and bound figured maple top in an attractive dark tortoiseshell stain. Made before Fender got their legal act together and started suing, this guitar has the original Tele headstock shape with a silver “spaghetti” logo and “Breezysound” in ’50s Fender-esque font. “Deluxe”-stamped Kluson-style tuners, 3-ply black pickguard, 2 single-coil pickups with 3-way switch and master volume and tone controls, the traditional Telecaster configuration, string-through body with railless 6-way bridge, and 5-digit serial number stamped on a 4-bolt neck plate. Condition is overall very good, nice weight at 7.5 pounds, plays well and sounds terrific, a well-made instrument. Made by Tōkai Gakki in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan, and comes in later gig bag.
