I took a huge leap of faith with a Tobias acoustic!

    I ordered a Tobias Pro-5 CE from MusicYo.com. It was on sale for 399.00(down from 549.00.) It came in this afternoon and I am very pleased with it. The set up was nice and low with no buzzes and there are no deadspots that I can find. It has a 34'' scale and the B string is not floppy at all. As I expected, there is very little volume when unplugged. When plugged in it has a very warm sound. The fit and finish is flawless! The top is spruce and the back and sides are maple. I hope the grain shows up in the pics.

    Someone has them on ebay, but the buyer has to pay shipping. MusicYo has free shipping on them.

    Sorry, I don't have any clips. The string spacing at the nut is 3/8''. The nut is 1-3/4'' wide. Pretty decent.
