    Dig the Yamaha-style tensioning collars on the tuners.

    These were such great J basses, and with the mods it's, I'm sure, a world class instrument now. Great deal on a great bass.

    Sorry, not a buyer, just another admirer and friend.

    I LOVE MIJ basses and Tokai is some of the top shelf.

    Killer price, too ! Fender killer by FAR !!!
