new La Bella flats and a clean up later. Under the logo, at the right angle of view, can be seen the remains of the so called lawsuit logo, that was removed before this was shipped out of the factory.

Tokai APB-COBRA YUICHI MODEL 2012. This is a Tokai Bass. It has Tokai on the back on the headstock. I bought this straight from Tokai a few years ago. They custom made this for a Japanese band called Cobra. So, that is why they have Cobra on them. Anyways, I upgraded the color of the pickguard from White, added Delono pickups, added a active Noll 4 band preamp and battery case in the back and a Babicz bridge on it. This thing screams now. Has a rock growing sound to it. I love this bass now.

HI!!! This may sound strange, but... after a few weeks of being "quarantined"... I noticed this "signature/engraving", under the clear coat of My VSB-60. Does anyone recognize the name/significance? It is OBVIOUSLY under the poly, and NOT refinished.

It's making My crazy!!!

Help?

Thanks,
Marc

Sorry. Having difficulty posting pic.
Name seems to read, "Fumihiko Yamamoto!!"
I'm not screaming. The 2 exclamation points are after the name.

I'll try again to post pics.

Many thanks, AGAIN.
Hope everyone is well,
Marc

P.S.
It's on the back of the headstock, next to the E peg.

Use a picture hosting website, like (Imagebb) then it's easy.

The only thing I can find for that name is that he was an Artist but whether this has any connection to the guitar or Tokai, not sure..
