Tokai jazz bass model 120 jazz sound from 1981

Model : Tokai Jazz Sound 120
Year : 1981
Body : Sen or Alder
Pickguard : Tokai "Coffee" Tortoise
Neck : "C" shape, maple
Frets : original small vintage
Tuners : original reverse fender/kluson type footprint (only on the 60, 80, 85fl and 120 model)
Fingerboard : Veneer Brasilian Rosewood (only on the 120 model)
Finish : Polished thin Nitro (only on the 120 model)
Pickups : Tokai Vintage grey bottom (only on the 80, 85fl and 120 model)

The bass is in a very good condition. Some dings mostly on the back of the body and the bigest one is on the side but nothing major
The sunburst and the varnish are one of a kind, natural relic that you can' t simulate

The bass is perfect in terms of playability. It' s not a super lightweight jazz bass, more on the medium side. The neck is absolutely not warp at all, great original fretwork and perfect alignment, truss rod works smoothly

The 120 model is the highest priced lawsuit jazz bass of the japanese history as far as I know. 120=120000 Yens in 81
You know what it is

Got an optional Tokai gig bag from the same period

Price : 1100€
Location France (Europe)
