I'm a definite gear horder, but occassionly I need to make room for more, eh? So, I am considering selling these two basses: Tobias (post-Gibson, Burbank) Basic 5, # 1353 This bass has bubinga body wings (according to Mike, one of his favorite combinations on the Basic 5), and is pictured on the left in this photo: There are some more photos and discussion in this thread: Tobias Trio. There is nothing wrong with this bass at all, but I am more attached to the other two Tobiases, and I'm thinking that maybe on Basic 5 and one Classic 5 is "enough." I could be wrong, though. This Basic 5 comes with the original case. Tobias Growler 4-string (modified by Carey Nordstrand) This bass was used by Carey as a test mule for a while, and he shaved the neck, leveled and dressed the frets, and I think put a new nut on it, as well as installed a custom quad coil pickup. I recently picked this bass up in a trade from TBer "Vic." I do like the way it plays and sounds, and I wanted a bass in this configuration, but after picking a 4-string Skjold Stage series (which has a similar pickup placement), I don't have as much need for the Growler. This bass does not come with a case. Here are some pics of the Growler: I'd like to get $2,000, plus shipping (to the lower 48), for the Basic 5, and $800, plus shipping (to the lower 48) for the Growler. Trades would be considered, though cash is preferred. I'm not in a huge rush to get rid of either of these basses, and I like them both. But, in an effort to try and streamline my "collection", it does make some sense for me to consider moving these on to someone else. Again, to be clear, these are just feelers, too. I reserve the right to pull either one, if I become too attached to them, or if I can find more room to store bass gear! Later, Tom.
