SOLD Pre-Gibson Tobias Basic 5

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by Nofrettin, Dec 30, 2016.

  1. Price:
    British Columbia
    1989 Tobias Basic 5 for sale, all original except for the strings.

    34" scale, Pau ferro fretboard, maple body, TCT preamp, 18mm spacing. Weighs 10.5 on my bathroom scale. Some light swirling/scratching on the back, there's a picture of the worst of it (looks worse in the picture than it is). It's been played, but overall it's in really nice shape.

    No trades unless it's a fretless Dingwall, thanks.

    Paypal works for me, though I'm open to suggestions.
