So you have the same bass model from two different years: a 1983 and a 1984-85 jazz sound! :P
The block logo was used only one year, and they are quite rare compared to the 1984 logo.
Salut, cool de pouvori parler en français, mon anglais est un peu vieillissant, t'as l'air de maitriser un peu les dates fonction de la typo du logo Tokai,
j'ai depuis un an une tokai custom edition, sur un model Jazz Bass et j'ai beeau eplucher le catalogue, je ne retrouve pas le model, ni de quel jazz bass elle est la copie.
peut etre sauras tu m'aider ?
j'ai posté une question sur le forum a ce sujet mais pour l'instant personne n'y a répondu

I must organise some decent pictures of my OLW TJB45 and post them up here shortly.

Looking forward to seeing what else people have to show us :) ....
Ok, I have found out that the bass in question was made in Japan in 1984 and is a JB50.
Thanks!

Some gorgeous basses here! I've noticed the 80 and up models from the early '80s are very rare indeed. I wouldn't mind a rosewood fingerboard PB80 myself :)
