    Which do you think is better? A Fender Standard MIM (P or J bass) OR the Tokai equivalent??
     
  2. Tokai imo , i tried a fender jazz MIM fretless and didnt like it (didnt give the fretless tone ) i borrow my mates tokai jazz fretless and i must say it is one superb bass.

    If you find one of the old lawsuit Tokai's it will probably be better than what Fender was making at the time.

    Sad, isn't it?

    Are they still making them? What's the quality like now? In the mid-'80's they were awesome.

    Some of the best basses around. MIM basses can be questionable, especially if you haven't played it before purchasing
