This 535 was built in 2002. I recently bought it from a TBer. Had to replace a bad pan pot but Mr. Tobias was extremely generous and responsive and sent me a new one right away...and free of charge. Great customer service to the third owner of this bass. Anyway, I haven't gigged it yet but it sounds good, as might be expected, with a tremendous top-end. Plays like butter, etc., etc. The last pic is the pair. I'll post detailed impressions of both basses after I have a chance to put them through gig paces.
