I just got this Tobias Toby Pro 6. It's a great bass, it has a beautiful top and red finish on it. I really don't know what the wood combo is, but it has a wonderful warm, but puncy tone. It will also get pretty bright if you want it to (for slap happy people). It plays well, has really nice low action, and again, I was very surprised at how great the bass sounds. However;... I have other GAS pains... and I'm not sure that I was meant to play 6 strings. There is a nick in the headstock...it's hard to see from the front, but noticeable from the top/side. I included a pic of it. All the pics are thumbnailed.. so just click on them to enlarge!!! Shoot me any trade offers.. I never know what I might like . Or, the first $425.00 get's it shipped to thier door as long as they are within the 48 states!!! (paypal included!!) Oh... comes with original Tobias hard shell case.
