You need to put your location in your profile, like this

Models changed at dfifferent times for different markets, so location is a factor in dating Tokais.

Your country doesn't make difference for me. Since those over 20 years all of Tokai bases could be everywhere in the world. My bass came to Poland from Vienna. I wish I know where it was since made day :)

I'd guess 1985 or thereabouts. The gold hardware is a little bit special and it could have been a custom order.

There is an all black P/J bass in the 1985 catalogue.
