I am ready to buy my first bass, considering I dont have a ton of money and I am going to college in a year I dont think it would be wise of me to spent a load, but I would like something built well and strong. I have heard mixed reviews about the Tobias, so I cant come to a conclusive answer. It needs to be able to hold its own in gigs, playing mostly Jazz/Funk, and occasional light rock. I know that I want something that would accept upgrades, because I dont want to have to buy another bass for at least a couple years. Is the Tobias up to this? -Geoff P.S. Sorry to post such a low down post as my first.
