i have been passing along some of my pro basses due to intolerable tinnitus. some I gave to people who I knew would honor them for what they were and some I sold to other pros. I still have my main bass for many years -1989 basic six, walnut body and such. I spoke with mr. tobias about how to get this bass to someone who would truly appreciate it. he recommended bass forums. this is my first try and I am not computer literate. I don't want to e-bay this instrument. I don't know if I can find this site again, so if anyone can direct me for real please call me at my home 541-942-7385.
