Need help on a Tokai Jazz Sound Fretless...

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by StoutFellow, Nov 1, 2013.


  1. Hello there,
    I HAVE BOUGHT THIS BASS!! THANKS ALL.
    I'm now living in Switzerland (which, let me tell you, does nothing to lower the GAS for all the goodies on TB Classifieds!!). But there's precious little for sale in Switzerland on TB, so I do cast the net a bit wider these days.

    I found this Tokai Jazz Sound Fretless:
    http://www.fr.ricardo.ch/acheter/musique-et-instruments/guitares-et-accessoires/guitares/guitares-basses/1984-tokai-jazz-sound-bass-fretless/v/an719095170/
    That claims to be an original 1984 Tokai. But all of my research (various FS threads here on TB, various Tokai brochure sites such as http://brochures.yokochou.com/en_index.html#TOKAI etc) suggests the following:
    (1) Most Tokai fretless are lined.
    (2) There is a Jaco-like fretless that might (the pic on the brochure is unclear) be unlined, but it's a Sunburst, not a black body.

    I hope someone out there can shed light on the Tokai that is in the for-sale link I posted. I'm reluctant to get in touch with the vendor unless I'm confident it is stock (don't want to waste the vendor's time).

    Thanks for any assistance you can give!

  2. Grateful for all inputs. Have procured the fretless! Fresh thread with pics in due course.
