    I'm have a deal pending to buy a Tobias Growler 5 string. I know it isn't one of the newer ones because it has the toggle switches instead of all knobs. On the back of the headstock it is stamped "made in USA" and serial number "7611". Does anyone know about what year this bass was made? Thanks!

    Not certain. I'm going to guess 1999. But write Customer.Relations@gibson.com
     
  6. According to Gibson:

    The serial number is consistent with a model made in 1998.* Thanks again!!
