Hi, Ive come across this Tokai Bass and was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the model and age, It seems to be a Jazz copy...the serial number on the neck plate is L26761 plus there is a very faint decal on the top of the headstock with the word Acme though this may have been fitted by a previous owner.
Thanks for any help given

My pleasure, and welcome to the forum.

Unfortunately, I don't know anything about Tokai basses, to be of any assistance.

That is an 83ish Jazz Sound.
The tuners tells that it is a lower model.

Had a bunch of those matching headstock Jazzes.
Usually JB48.

Here is one I had

Thanks for the very helpful information Koubayashi, I'm tidying the Bass up and fitting a pickguard etc. Did you find your Jazz sounds decent guitars?.

Usually great BASSES
I like them.

I'm playing a Tokai PB80 at the moment.

Hi mal245 , judging by the number of series is a true copy of a Tokai fender 1964 , check out the catalog of Tokai 1984 , maby there you will see your bass guitar .
