I am selling this bass as part of a major downsizing program. It is a Gibson-era Tobias Classic Five in near mint condition. I can't find a flaw on it, but someone else might be able to, so near mint is what I will stake my life on. This is an eye-popping bass with a punchy attack and a versatile range of tones. It plays remarkably well, and it doesn't exhibit any of the quality control problems that these basses sometimes did. Five piece maple/purpleheart asymetrical neck Twenty-four fret pau ferro fingerboard Curly maple/wenge/walnut body wings Bartolini pickups and three-band preamp Black hardware High gloss lacquer finish Original hard shell case I will sell this bass for $1,500 plus shipping. I am not looking for a trade, but if you had an R Bass, or a wonderful head and cash, I might be convinced!
