Hi all, There's a guy in a town near mine triyng to sell a Tobias Classic Five string with maple body finishing for about U$1500, maybe less. I didnt see the bass. It was bought new in 1998, so it must be a Gibson, I know all that thing. So here is my question: I've done a lot of search here and found nothing about the tonal caracteristics of this Tobias. What does it sound like ?? And what would it sound in comparison (sp?) to a Warwick, maybe Corvette Pro-Line, or to a MusicMan??? What about live/studio situations? I don't play in a noisy band, but I do a lot of funk stuff and I know a MM would be great. But I guess the Tobias is a better bass for soloing and smooth jazz... Thanks in advance, hope somebody here can help me!
