      Comments about Tobias Toby Standard-IV Electric Bass:

      I saw this bass advertised in my Bass Player magazine, and I was intrigued because Tobias is a high-end bass manufacturer, and I couldn't believe it when I look on Musician's Friend and saw how inexpensive it was. I pretty much discounted it since it was so inexpensive. However, a couple weeks ago when I arrived at band practice, our singer showed me her proud new possession, a Toby. Naturally she wanted me to put it through its paces at practice. I did, and I loved its fast neck and particularly its light weight. I just had to have one. I bought a used one from MF's sister store, Guitar Center for a song, and it was every bit as nice as the one our singer got. What is really amazing is that it has a bass and treble control, but not active electronics. I don't know how they do this, but it means you can have the tone control of an active bass without worrying about the battery going dead or the electronics simply pooping out at a gig. I played a 3-hour gig with it Saturday and it worked great, and my back and shoulder thanked me. I love this little bass. Now, if you are looking for fancy hardware, wood, paint, etc. you won't find it here. However, who can see that but you anyway? It looks great up close and at a distance, and sounds even better. So, if you need an inlayed headstock and contrasting binding and so forth you won't like it, but if you want a great little guitar that won't kill you with its weight and sounds just great, then this is the guitar for you. Parents note: it is as inexpensive as you are going to find, and you will not have to trade up once your budding bassist gets past the "beginner" stage. I have been playing professionally for about 45 years now, and I haven't outgrown it!

      Comments about Tobias Toby Standard-IV Electric Bass:

      I bought this bass to keep in E flat because I dislike changing tunings on more expensive instruments. It's never going to compete with those, but for the money it's hard to go wrong here. I've played a lot worse basses that cost much more. The fit and finish is exceptional for this price range. The neck is buzz-free and fairly fast, but I'm having to get used to no fretboard inlays - only dots on the side. It's a very light bass, and somewhat lacking in low-mid punch, but it has fairly bright new strings on it, so that's a controllable variable. I only gave it a 4 for two reasons: The neck inlay thing, and the bridge pickup is stuck in place, probably due to inadequate clearance - fortunately it's at the right height. I played several of the Deluxe model as well, and they all seemed pretty consistent - I just didn't want active pickups, and these are passive. Take a look at these if you're a beginner or on a tight budget, or just need a specialty bass for certain things. Possibly a good platform for experimenting with electronics too.
