Hi Ulrichke, Nice Hard Punchers. The decal will give you an indication when the Hard Puncher is manufactured. The spaghetti-logo indicates that it's made in the late seventies or early eighties, that means until 1982. The scriptlogo indicates that is was made in 1984. The sunburst Puncher has the sp...

I removed and cleaned the pickups, put them back on and checked the electronics, polished the body and neck, added new strings and made some adjustments to the bridge for my perfect setup.......and there it is, a brandnew old Tokai Hard...

The serial number is 1019512.
My guess is that it's a PB40 from 1981.

I'm trying to get an original logo, but it's hard to get one.

Thanks for your help!

Cheers!

The digitcode has seven digits (1019512). Unfortunately the decal is replaced by a Fender P-logo and the neck is sanded so I can't see whet...
