    Hey guys. Up for sale/trade is this rare pre Gibson Tobias Basic 5 String that I got recently through bass gear direct. This is the best 5 string I have ever played. Amazing build quality and a deep and present sound. Very good condition for a bass from the late 80’s. This is the last 5 string I will buy as since buying it I haven’t played it much at all and have just been playing my 4 strings. Nothing against this bass I’ve just finally decided to only play 4 strings from here on out and I don’t want to keep this as a collector when it’s still got a lot of playing that can be done on it

    Located in Melbourne. $3100 AU Plus Shipping
