    ive had the bass for a couple days now, i cant believe how awesome these basses are. all the bad things ive heard about the gibson tobias really kept me from getting one for the last year. i owned (or my brother did) a pre-gibson tobias years ago and this one sounds and plays just as good, and it looks beautiful!! its zebrawood/wedge/zebrawood. the tobias necks are really cool. i can play so fast and clean. the bartolini pups do seem a little noisy but i might think about replacing them later. it really reminds me on my old spector ns4 but tuns better. its very versitle.
    i dont know if i just happened to get a better than average tobias but if you get a chance, check one of these out.

    If you bought this one at the guitar center in fairfield I will hate you and curse your name for all eternity.Your right next to me and that sounds exactly like the one their.

    Ive been saving for that one for two years and made sure to play her every time I was in.

    That is a sweet looking Tobias. That is the best looking bass I have seen with Zebrawood IMO.
     
  8. I've had Tobias GAS for ages!!! I think Tobias was the first bass I ever GAS'd over actually, lol. Too bad they discontinued their Toby Pro lines, I was really liking what those had to offer. I guess I'll wait a few more years until I am able to take one off of someone's hands :D .

    Oh yeah, CONGRATS you lucky mother-thumper!
