    Been on the fence about this one...

    Up for sale is a sweet early 90's Tobias bass (serial #19XX). This would be post-Gibson, but pre-Nashville i.e. below serial #2044 so Mike's regular crew. Super clean condition 9 out of 10 comes with original case and papers. Professionally re-fretted and a new bone nut installed, plays and sounds great. Super PUNCHY tone, cuts great in a mix (too good for most of the more rock oriented music I am playing which is why I decided to sell). Maple and purpleheart 5 piece neck, flame maple body with some very nice figuring; the older neck profiles are amazing slim and FAST. Fairly lightweight, probably 8lb-9lb range. I did replace 2 of the bridge saddles (on the D-G strings). The original black ones will come with the bass, they didn't sound good (were kind of grooved in the saddle, probably from years or wear/playing). I was going to do a whole replacement bridge at some point but never got around to it.

    $1900 shipped via PayPal

    Thanks for looking!

    Had questions about trades...prefer to sell, but would potentially consider trades. If I did would prefer to add cash on my end and trade up. I am most into higher end early 80's basses Smith, Tobias, Alembic, F-bass...Thx
