Tokai Hard Puncher Circa 1982 Functional Junk.

Regular price ¥50,000 Sale

A lovely bass that was unfortunately not looked after well during its life so far... We received it with cigarette burns and scratches on the pick guard, so set to work on refreshing that with a wood laminate in black stain. Unfortunately there is a slight hump at the top of the fretboard meaning we had to do fret dressing to make it play. It can now play nicely at 1.5mm and no trouble at 2mm. It's comfortable. 

We also added a hand crafted thumb rest in rosewood. It matches the fretboard perfectly. 

The good news.. It plays, very nicely actually, sounds superb, and seems to be stable so far. The truss still operates OK. 

However, due to the fret dressing needed we cannot offer guarantee, it is sold as-is as functional junk. 

This price includes shipping.
