    Entry level bass with first class ergonomics

    Comments about Tobias Toby Standard-IV Electric Bass:

    I bought one of these for my bass students to use and was pleasantly surprised with its decent playing and ergonomic qualities. Superior balance, light weight and pack-leading comfort overshadow the cheap commodity level PUs and controls. it still sounds pretty good with a nice JB thwack and is more than good enough for beginners. Very Nice for the price.

    Great Bass for the Money

    • Good Tone

    Cons

    • Fret Buzz

    Best Uses

      Comments about Tobias Toby Standard-IV Electric Bass:

      I've been wanting to play bass for a while now, and when I finally saw the deal on this instrument, I jumped on it. Some other reviews mentioned that the quality for the price blew them away, and I agree.

      The neck is smooth, the body shape is comfortable, and the pickups sound high quality to me.

      There's definitely some things that show it is a lower-end instrument (ie. blotchy stain on the edge of the fingerboard), but that's cosmetic.

      There was a significant amount of fret buzz between the 1st and 7th frets when it arrived, so I adjusted the truss rod over time, and it appears to have corrected most of the buzz. It's a slight annoyance to have to do that, but not unexpected.

      One thing that is still unresolved... I have a strong feeling that the pickup selector knob on my instrument was wired in reverse. When I turn the knob counter-clockwise, thinking that the focus will shift to the neck pickup, producing a mellower/softer sound, everything gets louder and more pronounced. I've contacted Epiphone/Tobias about this and they haven't responded.

      Aside from that pickup selector issue, this is a great instrument.

        Comments about Tobias Toby Standard-IV Electric Bass:

        This is an amazing bass. I don't know how this bass can cost so little. Some people might get a little thrown by the shape of the upper horn or the position of the rear(body) strap button, but this makes it perfectly balanced. When I received it, the action was a little too low. I set it up and put on some flatwounds. All I can say is WOW!

          Comments about Tobias Toby Standard-IV Electric Bass:

          Im happy, it was a returned blemished item but overall it was in great condition and anything that was even slightly wrong i fixed myself. The frets were a little sharp but i polished that down in a hour and they are fine, most people wouldent have noticed much. Otherwise i use this to record bass tracks at home and am very satisfied.

          This bass far exceeded my expectations as far as playability, tone and overall integrity of the hardware and electronics. I have my own methods of testing an instrument out and this bass passed with flying colors.

            I bought this bass hoping to be something awesome to learn on and jam, and this one has delivered so far. It is super fun to play, and I can see myself using this one for as long as i can. The only problem I had was with shipping, I live in Canada and ordered from the United states before and never took as long as it did coming from here. Totally worth the wait though :)

              Bought this for my girlfriend to learn on. Compared it to other small body basses in this price range. Narrowed down to the Toby and the Yamaha RBX170. Both are great basses, but chose the Toby because she wanted white. I really liked the way it felt when I compared both at the store. She will be getting it for Christmas, so we'll see how she likes it. If she doesn't I'll be keeping it for myself ! Awesome little bass!

              This Tobias surprise me because of the Price. It feels like a Seven Hundread' range bass. Great punch! I love the electronics. Lightweight. Even doesn't have the in-lays, don't panic, dots are over the top fret arm... Excellent, I felt like I steal this one from MF, because of the price :)

                Wasn't expecting too much as reviews I read were not great.
                However its a darn brilliant bass, very playable with great neck and tone
                I have played a few gigs with it now and it rocks.
