hey,1st time poster! would love if someone could help me out,saw this bass and was hoping to check if it sounds legit,
its advertised as a japanense p-bass with "The serial number is 222728, which indicates it is a copy of a 1965-1976 Fender Precision. " on the neckplate, pictures at









would love to have this as a new quality bass is needed desperately and if this is legit would be just what i need!!
any and all help much appreciated!! thanks!

Looks legit to me although this model stayed the same well into the nineties.

That Tokai decal on the headstock doesn't look right.

The reason I sounded so certain is the screw in the middle of the scratchplate which Tokai had until circa 1995 and which I've never seen on another brand. Of course the neck could be fake although the logo may look odd simply because it runs the other way, being a lefty...

They're good basses (I own two) but since they were made during a long period of time it's hard to say exactly.
The trussrod adjust is at the body end of the neck, you can glimpse it in one of the photos.

Shouldn't it say "Hard Puncher" (or something) as well as Tokai on the headstock?

I don't think they could fit it in since they didn't have any leftyfied decals

So it's usual for the lefty decals to be different?
