    Hey. Jared here. Just got a like new Tokai Hard Puncher bass, its probably 90%. Sounds as good as my 2012 US Fender Jazz and plays just as well. Strang considering its from 1981. Amazing the effort the Japanese put into these products. Thats probably why Leo sued them and won. :hyper:

    Anyway... beautiful instrument

    Perfect even down to the tiniest Fender's imperfection: like the lower register half split pickup with E string on internal polepiece (screw in the internal screw and screw out the external one a bit to compensate the disallignment...)

    Like I said
    Beautiful instrument BTW


    PS: how much did you pay for it?
    In a shop near here, there's a wonderful '76 Ibanez pre-suit 3TS '70s big blocks Jazz bass that's worth a lottery!

    The prices on those have come back down to being a bargain again... they can routinely be had for less than $600 in decent shape, and there are usually a few on Ebay at any given moment. I missed out out on a few auctions by being outbid, and it's one bass that seems to stay on my radar. Very curious.
