A New Twist on a Groundbreaking Classic
Epiphone is proud to introduce what will surely become a players classic, the new five-string Toby Deluxe-V. The original "Toby" brought real innovation to modern bass players who were hungry for an instrument that could accommodate new styles and sounds. And now, Epiphone and Tobias team up again to put the Toby bass back on the cutting edge where it belongs with the Toby Deluxe-V.

The Toby Story
The original Toby Bass was designed by Michael Tobias and featured the classic ergonomic body shape that bassists find so easy to play. Toby basses have a focused, "finished" sound that combines the punch of an upright bass with all the clear detail of an electric. And now for even greater sonic variety, the Toby Deluxe-V adds a 5th string tuned to low B. The combination of a low B and the Toby Deluxes Active Tonexpressor Bass Enhancement Control gives bassists the chance to break through into new dimensions on stage and in the studio at a price that any player can afford.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreEdmonton South, Alberta
I had money to buy a much more expensive bass, and sat in the store "playing every bass" for a couple of hours. I was about to give up, and go to another store, when I saw the 4 string version. I gave it a try, and fell in love right away. I love the feel of the neck, the guitar is comfortable to play sitting or standing. The bass has great tone control, and the sound is fabulous! I love this guitar. I collect basses, and this one is one of my favorites! I recommend this bass for anyone looking for a really great bass for a great price!
