Please identify it this is a genuine Hard Puncher

Hello everybody!

I never saw such a logo on a Hard Puncher.

It looks like it is engraved (3D) and it is the same on the tuners.

But there is no serial number anywhere.

The PU is made by MoRRIS.

I don't know how to attach here photos so here is a link: https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/441615 ... d-puncher/

Thank You!

I'm going with not a Tokai.
The logo is with a T and not a 7 for the early models. All decals were slide transfers.
Tuners are not Tokai as used on any recorded HP, they used open 3 or 4 screw tuners.
Only Maple necks had the truss rod hole near the nut and then they were filled in.
The neck plate should have a ser#
Scratchplate should be 13 screws.
The body rear should be more carved away.
You will need to lift the scratchplate to see if there is any useful markings.
But on the plus side, those machine heads are early 70's, the impressed logo is correct in style as used by Tokai. Lifting the plate will help?
