Korean Bass Manufacturing Period?

Post by Marcosaurus » Tue Aug 17, 2021 7:50 pm

I just picked up a Korean made Tokia Thunderbird. Can someone confirm the years the TB was built in Korea? the info I've gotten is all over the place. Because this bass has no serial number, is there also a way I can nail down (at least) the year mine was built? ANY additional information specific to Korean Tokia TB's would also be appreciated (i.e. hardware info, woods used, etc...

By the way, this bass appears to be all original and after only a string change, it plays and sounds like an instrument 3x the price I paid for it ($400).

Thanx in advance 8)

Sadly very little info around, even the catalogues aren't much help.

Understood. No additional replies stating the obvious are necessary. Only those people with knowledge of the Korean Tokai TB bass please.
