Hi again.

MISTERY SOLVED: it's a Suzuki P bass. I found lots of similar Suzukis. The clue was an image on a Wallapop ad. He shows the bottom part of the neck that goes in the neck pocket. This imag ...

Hi everyone!

I've just had a few minutes to record something. The sound is pretty raw. Nothing has been added to the real output. It's been recorded through an Apogee Jam into the GarageBand: no co ...

By the way, my bass teacher has a 1984 Ibanez Roadstar RB630. We compared them 3 days ago. It has very similar (if not the same) tuning pegs as my Tokai "Precision". Interesting, isn't it?

It's really special this bass of yours. It has a very interesting and curious history. I guess CS stands for Custom Shop. Mine isn't CS. It looks like some sort of experiment.

Thanks for your help.

I'm quite happy about it. The truth is that the possibility it was a prototype crossed my mind several times. I couldn't find anything on the internet which was similar. And a ...

We already have an answer from Tokai Japan. They've been really quick. I sent quite a lot of pics and here's their feedback:

As long as I check the pictures, I can say the model is one of our PB se ...

Yes, we're at a dead end. I will contact both Tokai Japan and Tokai UK and see what they can tell us about it.

Thanks mate. I'll keep you informed.

I completely agree with you, bluejeannot: very strange. I'm not 100% sure this is not a Tokai. It would be very weird to make a copy as good as the copy, it doesn't make sense. You would make copies o ...

Nothing on the butt of the neck, nothing on the back of the pickguard, nothing in the pot cavity. The only cavity I haven't inspected is the pickup one. I removed the pickups but I couldn't remove the ...

You're right, but nothing else coincides with the rest of Tokais, not even the shape of the headstock.

To be honest, the overall feeling is that of a mid-range quality Japanese instrument: 4 kg, fe ...

Hi bluejeannot.

Thanks for your help, even though they are bad news. I also think I have been fooled like a child. I should have checked everything inside out. I fell in love with the sound of this ...
