The headstock change was primarily for the USA market, evetyone else got the Fender shape. Yours looks like an 84. Ok thanks, still haven't got around to resoldering the looser cable or clean pots yet, but hopefully have some time the day after tomorrow. Any more info on the model/date of my bass w...

Have managed to get into the Tokai Registry now but still struggling to identify this bass. Looks like a TJB 55G, but its hard to tell. I keep seeing very similar ones on google but they all have gold hardware. Also those metal knobs on my pots rather than the plastic one. Can anyone tell me when th...

Thanks a lot for your help. Would really appreciate you looking up the serial number for me too! I am working intensely for the next few days so really can`t do much bass tinkering but will look into it and post updates as soon as I have some free time. Really hope its not a faulty pot or even worse...

The shop didn`t really know anything and ...
