I have very mixed feelings about this bass.
It bought it two years ago, and I really love it since it has a story of its own, has an incredible sound and it's one of the most beautiful Tobias I've ever seen.
Sadly it sees no playing at all since I have no fretless projects around and my fretless skills are not that big thing.
A part of me does not want to let it go but I hate case queens and this bass deserves to be played.
For many reasons I can't explain here this bass will be listed for trade only.
I will accept as a trade only a fretted MTD, ash body, maple neck and ebony FB (I could add some cash).
I know it's a long shot but I have no hurry to see this bass go.
If nobody is interested in I will keep it without the slightest problem.
This said, now some details about this beauty :
Tobias Classic, serial n 1996.
Amazing fretless sound, weight around 9 lbs., spacing 17.5, 34 inch scale, includes OHSC in VG conditions.
Lots on beautifully figured walnut on this one.
Rosewood fretboard, some light swirls on the back, some light roundwounds indent on fretboard.
You won't find a pre gibson so clean.
This one has the uber rare stock WTMB Bartolini preamp (a prototype installed on a very limited number of Tobias pre Gibson) and this makes this Classic a very rare collector's item.
