    Hi All

    Up for grabs is a rare Pre Gibson Tobias Signature 5. Serial #658

    3 piece highly flamed koa body wings with wenge core and a 9 piece koa/purpleheart neck with maple stringers ... Pau Ferro Fingerboard.

    Previous owner added extra holes for I don't know what and added a master volume and separate volumes for each pickup ... Electronics are dead stock ... The original Tct with mid module ... Mike Tobias puts this bass around 1986

    The sound is glorious ... Very warm and sweet with a pronounced fundamental ... b string is absolutely devastating ... It kills most 35" scale basses

    This bass currently weighs in at around 10 pounds and has 17.5 mm spacing

    4,000 shipped conus with its original gig bag

    ONLY TRADES I WILL CONSIDER

    MTD 535 (straight trade)
    Performance J5 + cash
    Callowhill Junk or MDM 5 (straight trade)

    I might be wrong, but it looks like neckthrough bass. And if I'm right, body core and neck share the same woods: wenge & purpleheart with maple stringers.
