    yup, tobias would be my guess too.

  4. I don't think it's a Tobias. Body looks like it could be an MTD though. Around 2:38 you get a glimpse of headstock, blurry but it doesn't look like a Tobias to me. If it were a Tobias it would have to be a Killer B - that's no neck through. Unless you guys think an MTD is a Tobias and we actually agree but are using different names. Of course that's like calling Music Man and G&L Fenders.

    I actually though the headstock looked more tobias, than mtd. I could have sworn that I saw the classic tobias logo on that headstock.

    Look right at the 1:31-1:33 spot. And also at 1:51-1:55. You can barely tell, but it looks tobias to me...
     
  7. speaking of G&L, the body almost looked like a mix between an L2000 and an ASAT

    Looks like a Killer B to me.

    I'm pretty sure its a neck-thru tobias. If you enlarge the pic I posted, you can kind of see the seperation of wood color between the neck and the body wings.

    As long as the boss doesn't know I'm looking at blurry basses, its cool. :smug:
     
  14. i'm going to jump on the tobais vote for this one. i can see where people are get MTD from but that picture posted earlier makes it alot clearer that its a tobais.
     
  15. + 1 on Tobias--

    I'm Not really fond of this style of music but the band sounds great. The drummer is killin' and the bass is nice and loud in the mix with great tone.

    yeah I'm not a huge 2pac fan either but the band just rocks it hard! I also dig how the bass player switches from keyboard bass to the bass guitar half way through.. also that dude in the white suit it rockin' it on that voice box thing.. anyone have any idea what that little keyboard is? it's got a tube going to his mouth so I figure it's modeled on a guitar "talkbox"...
     
  17. Pac, Biggie, and Jaco are all chillin' on an island somewhere...

    That's Roger Troutman, one of the founding members of Zapp.

    +1 for tobias, too. Is it me, or does the bass have a maple fingerboard? That would suggest a Renegade offspring, a custom bass of some kind... Despite the blurry image, that bass looks sweet.
