  1. Price:
    Hello All,

    Up for your trade consideration is a EXCELLENT 1991 Pre-Gibson Tobias Classic 6. Serial Number 15xx

    This Tobias is all original and has a great wood combination. Plays stinking incredible and has that classic pre-gib Tobias Tone and Craftsmanship. The bass is in Excellent Condition. You can feel a tiny mark where the headstock meets the neck but is NOT Deep or through the finish and small enough to where it will be super hard to photo. Frets are in great condition. Comes with OHSC in Great Condition.


    Scale - 34in
    Body - Alder Wings (with figuring), Wenge Tone Plate, Bubinga Top with Figuring
    Neck - Flamed Maple and Wenge
    Fingerboard - Pau Ferro (Figured)
    Hardware - Black Original Tobias
    Pickups - Original Bartolini
    Pre-Amp - Original Bartolini TCT Vol, Blend, Treb, Mid, Bass, Active/Passive Switch

    Just a killer specimen


    The only Trade im looking for at this time is a older Excellect Condition Ken Smith BT 6. Prefer Big Head Stock and 3 knob but will look at all.

  8. This is my old bass, man this is one clean pre Gibson Tobias. Someone is going to be very fortunate to get this bass. GLWTS.
  9. Thanks Darryl, yeah it really is! Merry Christmas:)
  10. Hey James, I remember trading my Classic 5 for your MTD535 years ago. I only sold this Tobias Classic 6 because I just purchased an MTD635 which I currently have. You shouldn't have any trouble selling the Classic 6. Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year.
