It's been refinished as someone painted it green with a big brush! Used to be sunburst but it's natural wood now. Reasonable condition for year, a few knocks and marks but then it's 24/26 years old! When I refinished it I also fitted a new wiring harness from http://www.hoaglandbrothers.com/ and a Kent Armstrong pickup. Any ideas on value would be greatly appreciated!

That's a nice bass, it looks great and I bet it plays great too.

Unfortunately (or fortunately for those who want to buy them?), Tokai basses don't sell for very much compared to the guitars. With a refinish, I expect you'd have a tough sell on your hands. It will probably be worth more as a player to you than it is likely to sell for.

Hi, thanks for the reply! I thought as much, it is a nice bass, could prob do with a more expensive pickup on it though, guess I'll keep it as a backup

Speaking as a buyer, if I were to want your guitar I would much prefer it to have the original pickup rather than the Kent Armstrong. For me the more original parts the better, no matter what they have beem replaced with.

I think I'd pay no more than 200? for a HP in this condition.
