      Here is a photo of Red and Blue Tokai tele's owned by Johnny Atomic of the Telecaster forum







      But I think the blue ones is alot rarer than the red and it took me 4 years to find one of those.

        I don't know why it is that when fender reissued these guitars in Japan they changed the color from it's original "Paisley Red" to "Pink Paisley"? Maybe it was because most of the original copies had become so faded they look more like pink than the original red. Below is a photo of the original Fender ad for the 1968 Paisley Red Telecaster and Bass











        Hey "headless", notice that the neck of the bass has a skunk stripe so I don't know why the teles don't have one too?

          holy crap thats amazing!



          lack of skunk stripe and headstock plug means its a 2 piece neck, in 1969 you could get either 1 piece or 2 piece maple necks (or rosewood)



          so they are probably just showing that by having both in the pic.

            I think they made this guitar out of one of my jackets.

                  It's a great strat and probably the guitar I play the most. I felt a little guilty because when I got the tele it only came with a gigbag so I stole the strats case for the tele and banished the strat to the gigbag.







                  But it's too nice a guitar to keep in a cheap gigbag so yesterday I got it it's own case

                            There is an ATE-67 at Chris's Guitars



                            At Chris's Guitars



                            "Hey Tokai collectors, or paisley fans - this one is a real beauty. The Tokai ATE-'67 is a very well made recreation of the 60's Fender Paisley Tele made famous by the great James Burton, and more recently by Brad Paisley. The defining feature is obviously the paisley finish, which is actually a foil with multiple coats of clear coat on top. You can A/B this with a vintage Fender from the era and realize that the process is identical and now at 27 years old, this one has that vintage patina and looks very close to a 60's model. Features include 2pc alder body with one-piece maple neck, U-shaped neck profile, vintage style tuners, single coil C.A.R. (California Accurate Reproduction) pickups, bridge pickup factory wax dipped, vintage radius, vintage frets, transparent pickguard, vintage style 3-salddle bridge. This guitar is in stunning condition which indicates it hasn't seen a lot of playing time. It sounds like a Tele should with plenty of twang and an ample sustain. You don't see many of these around, especially with the original tweed case, and this one is definitely one of the good ones. Nice Tele for $799"

                              I finally was able to get a replacement decal from Tokai!







                              I sent them photos of my guitar and they sent me this decal(just one).
