    Comments about Tobias Toby Deluxe-IV Electric Bass:

    Great bass! Well balanced, light, and very musical. The neck profile takes some getting used to but after that playing is easy. The only con is there is some to a lot of pick up noise with the bridge pick up all the way on and the tone all the way up, yet it is easy to adjust out and still have a good sound. over all it is one of the best basses I have ever played. Going to save up and buy the five string!

      Comments about Tobias Toby Deluxe-IV Electric Bass:

      I've played bass very avidly for about 4 years, so I'm no Victor Wooten, but I absolutely LOVE this bass! Through my playing I have played snappy Flea lines and Tower Of Power grooves, as well as some solo work on the side for fun. This bass does it all! My ONLY complaint is that the battery is not in a "pop open" compartment and requires a screwdriver. My point is that for the money, this bass is a SCREAMING deal! Its beautiful, the tone is sharp when you need it, round when you don't, and the full range fret-board is a dream

        Comments about Tobias Toby Deluxe-IV Electric Bass:

        I wasn't expecting much out of this bass due to the price. I had a couple Tobias Growlers and really liked them so I figured it was worth a shot.

        The bass looks really nice. It looks sharp. I changed the strings as soon as I got it. It plays really nicely. The neck is a little thicker at the nut than a jazz bass but its easy to adjust to. The string spacing is little wider than most basses which I love. It takes a little getting used to but once you do its really nice to have that space between strings. Some listings say it has an asymetric neck, but its not noticable if it does. Its not like the growlers were.

        Its sounds good too. Has a modern sound in my opinion. The extra bass knob is okay. Since its a Tobias, I wanted to put a Bartolini preamp in it. I did and it sounds amazing. The pickups are a good match for the Bart preamp. It cuts through and sounds full and punchy. Lots of lows. I'll be using it more often than I thought.

        In summary... nice playing bass, with a different preamp, sounds amazing. Sounds pretty good stock. You won't regret this bass. Especially for the price!

          Just got my deluxe IV, tone goes from dead flat to razor sharp. Frets good and weight is very comfy. Been playing p-bass and rick for years so this bass is no joke. Would recomend to any bass player. Neck is a little wider but will deal with.
