What is this??

Post by SleazyJesus » Fri Dec 04, 2009 2:14 am

I am looking for a bass.... This one shows up, but I cant "define" it:) Is it the real thing you think? Have never seen the body quite like that. he say that it is imported from Japan.


Well, if anyone knows...... what should I ask for?

Exactly as it says on it - it's a Tokai Custom Edition J-bass. Take a classic model, fiddle with it a bit, and before you can say "hey hey, it's the mid to late 80s" you have one of the Custom Editions. Lovely instruments by all accounts, but I've never played one myself so can't comment.

Can guarantee that it's the real thing - nobody copies these decals (what's the point when you'd get more cash from sticking an early decal on it?).

Edit: looks like it could be a JB55 with a slightly later decal - see the bottom of here:

Ash bodied - looks like a good 'un!
