this is a hard one for me and one that may not stay listed ….. I’m so torn on wanting to keep this bass, I spent so much time bring it back…. And it’s such a special instrument with so much history

Please see all photos. I have photo’d the historical documentation on this rare 1st 5 string Pregibson Tobias that was the BassPlayer Magazine giveaway

Karl Heithecker, owner of the 2nd 5 string Koa build, sent me this Photo of #1 having the fingerboard glued on curtousy of Bob Lee.

another early photo shows #1 with Bart JJ pickups prior to Mike routing for his New Iconic soapbars radius smooth top Bartolini
