    How do I go about getting a Tobias bass? I read that Tobias was bought by Gibson but when I go to Gibson's website, they do not show any Tobias basses or the page is unavailable. Any help would be appreciated. Sorry posted in wrong forum. Meant to post in basses.

    Mike Tobias sold that company to Gibson more than ten years ago. Gibson continued to market Tobias basses after the acquisition. I'm not sure whether they still do; your question suggests not.

    Mike Tobias now operates MTD Design, and the basses he builds under that marque are of exceedingly high quality.

    Epiphone is now selling the Tobias Toby Deluxe IV & V bass.

    Apart from the appearance, those will bear little resemblance to the Tobias basses Mike Tobias was building in the 80s and early 90s. IMO.
