We really need photo to identify a genuine Tokai. Check the tokai registry to give you some pointers. I would keep the original pickup on your bass as tokai pickups are usually pretty good.

Have a guitar tech check it out.Should`nt be a big problem..The original pickup will be good trust me. your bass should sound something like a Music Man.Gabe.
