It has been offered to me from a Music Dealer in Japan for about $600. What can you tell me about this instrument? Unfortunately the Serial Number is not readable, but for me it looks like an early 80s bass. Do you agree and what do you think about the price?

Cheers
Tom

Hi, nice bass! :) It's hard to tell what model it is exactly but it's certainly pre 1984.
Price feels a bit high though, especially if you have to add shipping and taxes.
On the other hand, its very clean! Almost suspiciously so since Tokai vintage chrome parts are almost always quite tarnished.
