Welcome, Mark.

 

The reason it says only "TC" is because your guitar only had one pickup originally. The bridge pickup has been added later, which is obvious by looking at the unusual placement/positioning of the volume and tone controls, and added selector switch. Still a nice looking guitar, but this modification hurts it a bit in terms of originality and value.

 

Here's what an original 2-pickup model would look like:

Cheers. That explains why I have not seen another the same.

Thank you.
