    Hi! New to the forum and this is my first post.
    I have an early 80s (I guess) Tokai Jazz Sound, which I've been steadily upgrading:
    - Switchcraft jack
    - Alessandro pots
    - Simms scratchplate (and new screws)
    - Seymour Duncan vintage PUs (for jazz bass)
    - Elephant eared Gotoh tuners (nickel plated)
    - Bone nut
    - New cap and wiring (can't recall the make, but very high-end)
    - SS neck inserts for the original neck wood screws
    - Nickel plated Badass II bridge
    - Fender knobs
    - Removed chrome from neck plate and control plate and had both nickel plated
    - Felt washers on strap buttons
    - Hiscox case
    - Pro setup
    - Strings
    Frets are good and I like the original dings/scratches on neck and body (I am not going to refin them).
    Have I gone as far as I can with the upgrades (assuming I want to keep the vintage feel and look to this bass)?
