I'm thinking about getting a new bass. I want to move to a five string, but I (like most musicians I know) am poor. I simply can't afford the Ken Smith BSR that I dream of. I've noticed the Tobias "toby", 35" scale length, active, and one of the better names in the business, not to mention the price of under $500.00! it sounds to good to be true, does anyone have one, or has anyone played one? How can they produce a bass with these features for this price? Is this one of the best deals of the century, or is this Tobias's first junkpile?
