    Tone is great. It's different than my Gibson Tobias Growler, which I've had for 25 years. The Growler is very punchy and in your face. This Tobias original is smooth and silky. Together, they're gonna be an amazing team!

    I had mine made by Mike in about 1986-87 when he had the little shop on Cahuenga Blvd. He let me choose the wood and even invited me down the day they were shaping the neck. Wonderful talented 4 man crew including Mike. IMG_8701.jpg

    Tadsworld Fretted 5 string: Purple Heart w Curly Maple/Birdseye Maple/PaoFerro Fretboard. Serial Number 631.

    Hi to all !!

    I'm Alessandro and I'm writing from Europe, Italy in particular (Genova, nearby where the new Disney-Pixar movie Luca is set up).

    I'm looking forward to buy, in a few days, a Tobias Classic 5 pre-Gibson (792) that has been defretted (with some imperfections in the dots on the fingerboard edge) and has a few minor dung and scratched (a few screw-holes in the electronics cover) and a drilled bridge. A part from that, it seems perfectly functional.

    What do you think it would be a proper price for it considering the conditions?

    I'll have the opportunity to play it before buy, but I'm really confident that in terms of playability and sound it would be a fantastic instrument.

    Please answer me quickly since I need to make a decision shortly !!

    In any case, I hope to be part of the club soon !!

    Thanks to all !!

    Alessandro
