    Here is a fantastic mid 90's Tobias Growler 5 string with the dual mid switches. All original. This is the desirable early model with unique custom bartolini preamp and quad coil pickup. Plays and sounds great. Treble and bass adjustment for both sets of coils and a mid frequency switch for each set of coils. Plus pan between each set of coils. Lots of sounds in there.

    Fast asymmetrical neck. Very few signs of wear. This bass is probably a 9/10 and will ship with the original Tobias hard shell case. It is a used bass though so looking very closely you might find minor imperfections. Minor paint wear on a small section of the bridge and minor swirling on truss rod cover and electronics cavity cover. Very cool bass and increasingly hard to find. Especially in this condition. I'm pretty picky about my instruments and this one is in fantastic condition for its age. See pics.

    Just making room for another purchase. $1,000 shipped CONUS. Open to trades for 5 string basses. These early models are highly sought after and this is a fine specimen.

    Bump for my favourite bass ever........

    I've owned 3. Currently sporting this one.......

    P1040759.

    Cannot recommend these enough.....

    Yours looks pretty mint......someone should grab it...These older models with the toggle switches are just killer. Super snappy, crisp and full with great sustain.
