He claims it's a USA Tobias. I think its a Toby Pro. What say you?
Tobias 5 String Bass $900 obo
Given the controls, I'd guess Toby Pro. They might have upgraded the PUs and/or preamp, but without seeing it in the flesh, hard to tell.
I'm by no means an expert, but as far as I know a USA Tobias will have the truss rod adjustment at the heel with a 'Tobias' logo cover on it.
Well I guess it won't always have a Tobias logo at the truss rod adjustment, but I'm pretty sure it should be at the heel. This is a USA Tobias.
Okay, I'm convinced that the bass in question is a Toby Pro, and not a USA model. Truss rod adjustment is a dead giveaway.
Here's a Toby Pro:

And another Toby Pro, looks to be the exact same bass (or at least the same model) in question. Somebody just replaced the 'Toby Pro' trussrod cover from the one in question.

yeah- I'd say it's probably a toby, and highly doubt it was made in the US. That money would be better spent on a Kingston series MTD (in my opinion)
That is absolutely a Toby Pro and not worth $900.

- I own Pre-Gib #1969
- I've owned other Pre-Gibs
- I've owned 5 other Gibson era Tobias basses (two Classics, two Growlers and a Killer B)
I know Tobias basses.
(Side note: I've also owned 5 different MTD basses which is Michael Tobias current company. I rather like his instruments.)
Yes it's a Toby. 4 knobs vs 5 on USA made.
Truss rod at headstock instead of at heel.
I've seen soon funky looking axes on EBAY that are being passed
as Pre/Post Gibsons.
