Got this for a price I couldn't pass up. Incredible bass - but I still am a Stingray guy at heart.
The bass is in MINT condition! I can't find a single mark on the bass body or neck (even with my glasses on!) The Bart pickups have VERY slight (and few) marks. I think they come that way from the factory, as I've never seen one without some mark on it.
Comes in the Tobias hard shell case. No case candy.
I believe the wood is Bublinga (but not 100% sure). The wood is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!!
No scale in the house, but it's one of the heavier versions. I would estimate 10-11 pounds?? I played it at a practice last night and with a padded (semi-wide) strap, I had no problem leaving it on for a few hours.
While this is a Gibson build, the quality is there. I've got a few other "boutique" basses and this is in the same league. I believe the only Tobias bass being made currently is a (limited edition) Growler, that lists for over $3,000! Could end up being collectable!
Got this for a GREAT deal and will pass it along. Through today - (pre-EBAY sale) - SOLD!
No trades at this time, as this bass put me one over my self-imposed bass quota.
