..... so that is a very accurate Translation.
I am not sure what Year the translation is from though? Probably 1982 or later.
1981 had 3 fretless JB models JB-80, JB-90 and JB-120 but by 1982 it had ...

Hi Kmax,

The warranty card with serial# shows it is definately original.
This was however made in the Nagano factory, not Hamamatsu.
The serial# style, routing, neck style and pickups are all N ...

Hi Goat,

No, the 4-bolt SS-60 was made through to 1985 when it ceased production. 1982 was the only Year the SS-60 4-bolt had the spaghetti logo. Later Years have the script logo.
That's what mak ...

Hi Nossnevs,

That is gold, right there.
SO the stamp 6=10 YS A W tells me the finish is Vintage 3T Sunburst and it was made in June of 1981 during the 10th production run.
The 'A' stamp on both ...

. . .and you would have been wrong, Hodge.
1981 SS-60 would be a 1976 replica with bullet truss rod, 3 bolt neck and a 7 digit serial# on the headstock.
1982 was when Tokai went to Fender style seri ...

Hi 'Goat'

So the spec for this model was an Alder body with poly finish. It was essentially a SpringySound in terms of body, routing,
electronics, hardware and finish but had a one-off style neck ...

Hi Nossnevs,

The tuners are correct for the style of Bass that Tokai is replicating. The lower Model bass' have a 3-screw clockwise turn. Yours being a 4 screw counter turn means it is a high end M ...

Hi

Definately an SS-80. Aside from all the other features,(which can be replaced) the one defining the Model is the use of an "A" stamp on the neck. Only '80' series guitars and higher ha ...

Hi Nossnevs,

The plating is nickel - not chrome, so clean gently with Silvo to retain the vintage patina.
Can you take a look at the neck stamp and body stamp also as this will help to narrow do ...

Attaching photos helps.
The 4 digit numbers STARTED in 1982 and continued on. Features and body and neck stamps will help determine Year and production.

Hi guys,

The serial number is too early for dimple headstock plus dimple start shallowing over the top of the 'T" not after it.
I think this was a touch of customising. . . . .

So if you've had it from 1984, I would probably think to get a set of Gotoh SD-91 Aged tuners. In that way theyhave the nice patena that normally takes Years to achieve.
