    For sale.

    This is an early '80's 3 tone sunburst Tokai Hard Puncher with a non functioning truss rod. I just purchased this bass from a fellow tb'er who was honest in his description and thought that stringing it with a new set of Dean Markley Super Round .045-.100 string set would make it playable to my liking but it didn't. I paid $400+ and am selling it for $275 shipped to CONUS.
    The truss rod adjustment screw is sunk pretty deeply and there is some oxidation on the hardware as you can see by the pictures. Otherwise the bass looks really good. There is a crack in the rosewood fretboard under the A string at the upper end of the neck. The action is medium to high. However the bass sounds really good! It has a nice clear, deep bottom, snarly mids and aggressive top end. It weighs 8 lbs 9 0z, ships with the new set of strings that are currently on the bass and the Fender flat wounds that it arrived with. I'm not in a position in regards to time and money to fix it up so I'm selling it cheap. The bass comes with a pretty decent gig bag and strap.
    Thanks for checking it out. Please see my other items for sale.....

    I actually heard Matt play this bass at a recent gig and it sounds great.

    The truss rod is definitely broken, or the bolt just doesn't turn anymore?

    It won't turn clock wise any further. Hope this helps.
