Product details

We've never seen an older Tobias. According to Mike Tobias, it's a prototype of the Tobias Basic, which ultimately sported twin Bartolini humbuckers and a full 3-band EQ. The bass has been gone over and Plek'd by Mike Lull, so it plays amazingly well. Its tone is that of a blending of a Ricky, Spector, and a Cliff style Aria Pro II. Punchy, articulate, yet deep. Definitely rock. Other than wear from being a really old bass and missing the truss rod cover, this bass is solid.
