I think it's from 1981, but I'm trying to figure out the exact year. See my other post at this forum.

I had the bridge in a glass of coke for one night, works great. 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 Hardpuncher. :P

The neck has a fat C-profile like a late 50's PB.
very non-Japanese in my opinion.
