    First I wanna say that when my fiance finds out about this I will die. Today I went to my local music store to get some strings, I came out with this Killer Tobias I cannot put down. Im sad to say that this is the first time I have ever even picked up a tobias so I know little about them except Gibson now owns them. What I do know is this bass is US made and has dual barts. One mm in on the bridge and a J in the neck. If anyone has any information on this bass let me know. Keep it low! :bassist:

    When I go to buy strings, I now leave my credit cards at home and just take some cash --

    I hate to prolong this type of competition ;)

    But what about having a wife who buys you a bass on the spur of the moment? :p

    I win?

    That's my guess too.

  12. It doesn't exist if there are no pics :)
  13. Remember that your bass is a tool.

    Carpenters need good hammers, saws and screwdrivers, and auto mechanics need good ratchets and torque wrenches. Bassists need good basses. After all, if you play gigs, it will bring money into the household.

    Consider that it's only a bass...unlike friends of ours that got married, and he took all their wedding gift money and bought an antique rifle the next day :eek: (true story). She left him the following day....
  14. And she took the danged rifle!

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl "Will you marry me?"

    The girl said, "NO!"

    And the guy lived happily ever after and went fishing, hunting and
    played golf a lot and drank beer and farted whenever he wanted.
