    Just got this in, but I'm a 35" scale guy, so I'm selling this beauty. Love it, big beautiful Bartolini driven sound. This bass is absolutely prestine condition, no bumps, bruises, rash, scratches, nothing. Amazing figuring on the fretboard. Typical great feeling Tobias Asymmetrical neck profile. Solid solid B string with a nice tight sound. Not muddy. Serial number 8275.

    Not trying to be tricky or cute, but this is a pretty short term listing because I found my dream USA MTD 535, so if you're interested let me know quickly and have it by the weekend.

    Comes nice and safe in a well padded gigbag and will be professionally packaged.

    Sale only- $1700 shipped cont. USA

    I have a quick disclosure, I just discovered that there is a very small pressure indentation on the back of the headstock by the serial number. It's about the size of an end of a needle. Not a biggie, but wanted to let you know.

    Here ya go; Bartolini pickups, 3-band EQ, a mid cut/boost switch, a blend control, and a push/pull Slap Tone switch. Body wood; I believe it's Mahogany or Bubinga. Figuring looks more Mahogany to me.

    Anyone in TB land have an opinion on the wood?

    - Handcrafted of premium tonewoods.
    - 2-piece walnut body.
    - Neck-thru construction.
    - 5-piece Asym neck with dual truss rods.
    - Pau ferro fingerboard with mother-of-pearl markers.
    - Hand-rubbed oil finish.
    - Bartolini pickups.
    - Mid cut/boost switch for quick changes of tone.
    - Pickup blend control.
    - Master Volume and push/pull Slap Tone switch.
    - Bass control.
    - Midrange control.
    - Treble control.
    - Chrome hardware.
    - Grover tuners.
    - ABM brass bridge.
