    :confused: My buddy is looking to sell me a bass that he just recently received as payment for services rendered. I haven't seen the bass, he says it's a TBS custom 5. I'm not familliar with any other TBS except the Carvin models, which he states it is definately not. He wants $400 bucks for it. Does anyone have a clue as to what this may be, and if so, is this a fair price?:confused:

    Billy -

    I am not familiar with that brand but I know one thing: $400 will buy you an excellent "Name-Brand" entry/intermediate bass brand new.

    Yamaha, Fender, Ibanez, Peavey, and any one of many other well-known manufacturers come to mind.

    Just my .02
  3. i've never heard of it, but i would ask him if you can see it first, then if its worth 400 bucks, buy it, if not, don't! :)
