    Hi TB,

    Need to raise money to fund a double bass purchase.

    Here's a few details but I'm sure the MTD "guru's" will have much more insight. Player's bass in good condition, very lightweight (definitely under 9 lbs), plek'd & set-up by Gary Brawer's SF approx 1 year ago (have receipt). Plays great, fat tone, extremely versatile.

    -Red trans finish
    -34" scale
    -24 frets
    -Neck through
    -Active/ passive 9v 3 band EQ
    -Mooradian gig bag

    $2,050 shipped ConUs

    Possible trade interests below & I'm really hoping to get at least $1,450 on top.

    -80's MIJ Fender PBass
    -80's G&L (GandL) SB1/ SB2
    -Etc.?

    Any ideas or questions, please feel free to call/ text or PM me.

    Thank you,
    -Paul (650) 464-4012 (SF Bay Area)

    Nice bass, nice price, especially for a Pre-Gibson.
    I own 2 Tobias's. They are top of the line.

    Excuse my ignorance, but this has an amazing likeness to the early Japanese Toby basses. Where was the bass built?

    pedulla-2007- As per the thread title, this bass was built in Burbank, CA according to the man Michael Tobias himself. Serial #1711 which puts it's production date in the early 90's before the complete buyout.

    Now a 'Toby' or the 'Japanese Standards' are completely different instruments & there's a plethora of information available for those who are willing to do their own research here & the internet in general.

    Thanks.
