21 frets

1988 Tokai Japan MJB-70 Jazz Bass w/Three Pickups (Pearl White) | eBay

Description:
An incredibly rare bass made in Japan by Tokai as part of the late 80's "Custom Edition" series. Part of the "Modern" series of instruments, the MJB-70 features a Pearl White finish on a pickguard-free ash body (plus a matching headstock), maple neck and rosewood fingerboard.

The MJB's feature three JB-Drive Jazz Bass pickups with a 5-way selector and master volume/tone controls to give a full range of modern tones not possible with traditional JB wiring! Gold hardware gives it a really classy look. Brass nut with a 40mm nut width Weighs 4.6kg's.

Great overall condition. Pearl White finish still has plenty of shimmer to it with minimal fading, gold hardware is nice with minimal patina. It's all original and received a full teardown, clean and rebuild prior to listing. Truss functions well and the neck is smooth and straight.
