  3. 5 STRING

The Tobias Toby Deluxe V 5-string electric bass guitar is based on the original Toby bass released over 10 years ago and brings real innovation to modern bass players. Its comfortable body shape and superb feel make the Toby Deluxe V perfect for virtually any player and any style. An Active Tonexpressor Bass Enhancement Control allows for creative blends and fine adjustments to cut through dense mixes.

The Toby Deluxe's most legendary feature is its hard maple Tobias asymmetrical neck profile which is a bolt-on design with recessed bolts and washers for easy adjustments. Tobias basses were among the first to feature an asymmetrical neck, a design where the neck is thinner on the lower side than on the upper side. The asymmetric back shape feels less bulky than standard bass necks allowing for maximum hand comfort.

While these Satin finished necks might feel thinner, there is still sufficient thickness on the upper side to provide for excellent strength, stability and--best of all--deep, rich tone. Your thumb will find easy reference points as your hand glides up and down the fretboard. The neck has a 34 inch scale length for enhanced clarity, a rosewood fingerboard with a 12 inch fingerboard radius and a 1.68 inch nut.

The Tobias Toby Deluxe V bass electronics feature classic Tobias-designed pickups with a Tobias SCR single coil in the neck and a Tobias SCT single coil at the bridge. Controls are all-metal Knurled knobs and include Neck Volume, Pickup Blend with center Detent, and Master EQ. An Active Tonexpressor Bass Enhancement Control which enables bassists the option of making creative blends. The Active Tonexpressor is powerful on stage when you need fine adjustments to cut through dense mixes. The Active Tonexpressor uses an easy-to-change 9-volt battery.
