U.K. Sale: Tobias Toby Deluxe Bass

Discussion in '[OLD FORUM] Bass Guitars, Amps, and Accessories: F' started by g4ui83tp2, May 12, 2004.


  1. Tobias Toby Deluxe Bass
    Bought new 01/07/1998. Serial number 5051408
    Professionally upgraded and maintained at The Gallery
    £370.00 (GBP) or near offer.
    This bass has been lovingly cared for and is in great shape.
    The EMG pickups and circuit have added a really solid active growl and have extended the tonal variation. The original Tobias design is light and highly playable. Very low, fretbuzz free, action. Setup works well for finger style, pick and slap.
    Several detailed features (e.g. metal screw inserts for securing the electronics cavity cover on the back) have been improved from the original ‘budget’ specification. Original pickups and circuit available in the price so the bass can be restored to ‘factory configuration’ if required.
    Regular maintenance at The Gallery has ensured that the bass is still in prime condition with no uneven fret wear. No dings! This has been my prime bass for almost six years and has only just been replaced in my affections by a Modulus Quantum 4 which cost over four times a much (hence finances force sale)!
