    So...I'm putting this out as a trade feeler. I have a '96-'97 Gibson Tobias Classic.

    This bass is in great condition. There is some clouding in the poly on the back, but nothing at all that effects playability. The bass is a 34" scale neck through with maple and purple heart. The board is Wenge and has recently beed oiled and the frets have been dressed. The body is walnut with a wenge tone plate and maple top. The bass has the killer Tobias/Bartolini preamp with the curved shell Bartolini pickups. When you pull up on the volume control, you get that great scooped sound that makes your slap tone feel like a kick in the nuts.

    The bass weighs in a bit over 9 pounds and the playability is off the charts. The B string on this bass sounds like thunder.

    The value is in the $2200 - $2500 range, so I'd like to see some trade offers close to that...I'll also look at trades of lesser value plus cash on your end. No 6 strings...no cheap basses, NO 35" scale!! I would lean more favorably towards Warrior, Sadowsky, Pedulla, etc. I cannot add cash.

    I will sell the bass for $2350 shipped - PayPal.

    I reserve the right to pull this ad if I pull my head out of my backside...LOL. Here are a few pics...(and the knob that was missing the top has been replaced)
