Re: Violin bass

Looking likely to be a VB48 2006.
Pictures of the headstock front and rear and including the serial # will help, as it could be vb62 Chinese.

Re: Tokai-UK lately?

Re: Tokai-UK lately?

There's a dealer in Shipley that has quite a few new ones but that was before the new distributor came along. No idea where they source them from.

Re: Greco Telecaster: help please!

I'm no Greco expert. You're going to need to take it to pieces and inspect them, also browse the catalogues.

Re: Please identify it this is a genuine Hard Puncher

I'm going with not a Tokai. The logo is with a T and not a 7 for the early models. All decals were slide transfers.
