    get the kingston 4 or 5 in the color of your choice. It beats the heck out of the tobias.

    dont go into too much depth now :rolleyes: you may overload our brains with your amazing deduction.

    :p

    i think the tobys great, ive only handled one kingston, and that was baaaaaad. As in it was shoddy looking in build..(pickup holes uneven. Plate warped....e.t.c)
    Maybe it was a one off, i wouldnt know, no experience with these things.:confused:

    the reviews on harmony central are regulated so you can trust them pretty much.

    regs...

    EDIT: ridethebike, i notice you said the toby deluxe 4....in this case i wouldnt know how good/bad it may be, as i have the pro model, which is on sale at the moment in a 5 string for $499.

    sorry about the confusion.

    never had a problem with a bad kingston-
    one thing, though.. if youre plugging thru a zoom- those small inexpensive pedals suck the true sound of your bass right out- its better to go straigh tin, or use true bypass pedals - like Boss or EBS, etc.. youre making a big decisison with the bass. make sure you hear the BASS!!
     
  6. get a 66' p-bass (mike dirnt plays it) :D

    Hey, hope you like it man.
    It is honestly a very nice bass for the ££'s. Is very high end feeling.

    Ok, i should have rephrased what i said....

    The reviews on HC are pretty well rounded. As they wont let people review with stupid crap like "this sucks" or "this roools".....

    sorry about that.

    regs....
     
  13. Ah im glad your on, did you get the satin natural finish or translucent red i forgot now if whether or not you showed me the guitar, i want the satin effect hmmmm, i just read a review of it on musicyo and its ideal as the string spacing is quite narrow and i have small hands.

    i got the trans red. Not worried about it denting or anything yet as it seems really durable.

    But if i could afford both finnishes id get em both. ;)

    its all personal preference.

    :) :) :)
     
  15. Ok thaks a lot for telling me about them, my bass knowledge has been rather limited until i started coming on here, it helps lol thanx
