    Selling my beautiful, lightweight Tobias Classic 4 neck thru bass. I goofed in the original posting, thanks to a fellow TBer for giving me the correct info.
    I absolutely love it, but am stuck on jazz 1.5 nut width.
    This is really tremendous looking in person. Has a clear matt finish so it shows no swirls or marks at all. A slight bit of wear on top of the neck pickup, but very slight. Neck is excellent and the fingerboard has some REALLY nice figuring. Smooth, low action and has my favorite Bartolini pre and pickups. Beautiful, growly bass with, what's come to be called, the slap switch. Lightweight at slightly under 9 lbs. Original case with very slight wear and all the factory case paperwork, wrench... The lock has never been set on the case. Approximately 12 years. Most of that time has been spent in it's case. Serial number is 5561.
    As a Classic, this is an absolute bargain. I would challenge anyone to find a Classic for less.

    FS: $ 1525 Shipped Cont USA, Others contact me for shipping price. Sale preferred. Paypal, cashiers check is fine.
    FT: Fender USA jazz 4 (std or deluxe) - prefer maple fretboard,Lakland JO 4, Lull Jazz 4, Sadowsky j or PJ 4. Cash on either side.

    I purchased this from the ebay seller off line, not on ebay. I was debating between this and my Lull, but I love my Lull's neck profile so decided to keep the Lull and sell this.

    From a fellow TBer.
    " Hello from a Tobias owner.
    I have a Basic and a Classic.
    The bass you have listed is a Classic model.
    Classics have wood covers on the neck adjust cavity and control cavity. They also have 3 layer bodies.
    Basics have plastic covers on the both cavities and are a single wood body.
    FWIW you may be short changing yourself on that price."
