|That's a tricky one .
Hardcore Tokai bass collectors (and there aren't many of those ) might find the 'post-law suit' (if I can call it that!?) headstock shape interesting, but I think that most buyers would prefer the more typical Fender shaped one.
I guess the bass dates from around the mid-1980s, but it's hard to be precise. This is good though, as that was generally regarded as the best period for production (AFAIK).
In the end, it comes down to how light the bass is (the lighter the better, within the range of 8-9lbs) and how well it plays and looks close up. My best advice would be to track a few in your local (USA?) ebay auctions and see what they actually sell for.
Good luck, if you're thinking of selling it .
