I'm sort of a Tobias knowledgeable person;)
This is a Tobias Standard 5 which was made in Nagoya Japan and assembled in Burbank USA by Mikes crew.
Great basses indeed!

The line was Standard (Japan) Model T (made by Pedulla) Basic,Classic, Signature (Burbank)

Oh and for anyone who didn't know these have an older Bart tct preamp but the mid pot is located inside the control cavity.. These are fantastic preamps!

String spacing on these and All pre gibsons are 17.5 mm and 34 inch scale.

Years ago, I had a pre Gibson Tobias Classic 5, and it was one of the most resonant and funky sounding basses that I've ever had! Same Bart pick ups and pre as this, so this Standard model should be one hell of a great sounding bass! Good price too for a quality through neck instrument, IMO.

In the end, I couldn't really ever get used to the 17.5 mm string spacing, but it was fun while it lasted...:)

A standart has different pickups, instead of the revers split coils the US tobiasses have (that are also curved) this one has humbucker soapbars so it'll sound a little darker. Anyway I talked about these with Mike himself, and he Spoke very highly of these, so yeah if your into Tobias basses these are very sweet and also gentile on the wallet! I always wanted a black one tho;)

Lovely bass. Great ergonomics. This is a better bass than a Smith. I have owned three Smith BSRGNs.

Keep it and get some custom pickups from Aaron Armstrong for that Smith sound. ;)

I know it's not a ken smith but just in case...my acg single cut 5 is on here for sale and I could do with a nice but 'less expensive' 5'er to have around the house for the rare occasions I need one...?
