A friend of mine is selling his Tobias 5-string classic. Serial number is 794, so it is a pre-Gibson bass. The asking price here in Finland is 3000 euros, which is a too much for me. So I am looking for a Tobias 5- or 6-string bass. Pre-Gibson basses are said to be good, and the one I have tested was magnificient. How about the Gibson era Tobias basses? This one looks nice, and the price is good for me.http://www.bassnw.com/Used Basses/tobias_basic_6_string_bass_natural_ash.htm Is that good, or should I maybe invest on this one? http://www.bassnw.com/Used Basses/tobias_classic_5_1340.htm What are the main differences between the Classic and Basic basses. The sound is what I'm interested about. And are the Gibson era Tobias basses even nearly as good as the Pre-Gibson basses?
