    Up for sale, is a rare Tobias Eclipse 535w 5-string bass. Originally made in 1994, this is #30 of 50 basses made by Michael Tobias - not sure how many are still in circulation. I am the third owner of this gorgeous bass - got it on a trade with another tb'er back in 2012. This bass plays like a dream, and only has minor fret wear. In excellent condition except for a couple of small nicks near the bottom edge (highlighted in picture). Never gigged with. I really don't want to sell this beauty, but times are tough right now, and bills are stacking up.

    P1040688.
    • 35" scale
    • 21 frets
    • 8.15 lbs on postal scale
    • 19mm string spacing at bridge
    • Nut width: 1-7/8"
    • Swamp Ash body, with Burl Maple top
    • Wenge Neck/Fretboard, with matching Wenge control plate on back
    • Bartolini soap bar pickups, 18-volt system upgraded in 1996
    • Comes with original hard shell case - case has cosmetic damage but is still functional
    • Includes original 5/16" truss rod wrench
    • Original purchase letter from Tobias is included

    More pics here.

    For sale in the Continental US only. $3,100 or b/o. Buyer pays shipping. Paypal Only.

    Thanks for looking.

    Will consider trades, plus cash on your end, for other 5-strings: Fender Marcus Miller V, Lakland, Musicman, Modulus, Roscoe, Xotic, etc.

    Cheese n' rice. I bet the feel of that neck is to die for. Nice.

    The neck is mighty fast on this one - the feel is almost x-rated! ;)

    If this doesn't sell within the next couple of weeks, I'm taking it off the market. I love this bass, and it will most likely be impossible to get another Eclipse in this condition.
