Order #6534

Tobias Toby Pro IV Tobacco Sunburst

serial: U05090251  Unsung (Korea) I believe 2010's

Open minded to any trades, and will consider an offer.

Few very minor finish scratches from clothing, which could be polished - but no dings or dents. Overall in great condition. 

Tone wise, this to my ear sounds like a darker more plummy Jazz, it's not a particularly modern sounding bass, deffo more leaning towards a vintage voice but that my opinion off course. Personally really enjoy the bridge pickup sound for bark'y articulate finger style. Both pickups together work well with a pick for a decant rock tone. 2-band active preamp is quiet with good headroom. My Thumb bass crosses paths tonally so to speak; hence the sale/trade. Only issue IMO is one of the bridge PU screw heads is a bit worn- It does still provide enough traction to unscrew - but I would approach with caution and be gentle, ultimately replace at some point.

I think this bass would love a set of EMG soapbars, other than that its a solid bass with plenty of usable tones. 

let me know if you've got any questions I will get back to you. I am in the middle of moving house at the moment but will try and accommodate anyone who wants to demo the bass. I don't have my main bass rig set up at the moment so just a practise combo - you're welcome to come with your amp and try it out.

Cheers!

I genuinely think this is currently the best value bass for sale on Basschat. If I had any use for a 4 string I'd snatch this up. £210 for a through-neck Korean MTD is pennies.

This bass is very cool. Im literally on the trigger. I wonder if some Nordy fat stacks would fit in this.? What sort of trades are you looking at.?

Stunning. Had a lot of GAS for these when they first came out. That's an insane amount of quality bass for barely more than Harley Benton money. GLWTS!

Hey! I can't confirm exactly - but could try and get some measurements for you if it helps...
pretty open with trades - its the only bass in my collection that I haven't bonded with, it just kinda sits around looking pretty. I willing to put cash towards a trade if need be.

I mean its certainly a cool instrument. and had fun playing with it. I do like to experiment with all sorts of basses. because of all the positive comments I took it out and popped some new Roto's on it. almost had second thoughts haha!
