A New Twist on a Groundbreaking Classic
Epiphone is proud to introduce what will surely become a player’s 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 Deluxe’s 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.
Like all Epiphone instruments, the Toby Deluxe-V comes with Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Warranty backed by Gibson Musical Instruments’ famous 24/7/365 day Customer Service. Four strings will never be enough again. Check out the bold and innovative Toby Deluxe-V at your favorite Authorized Epiphone Dealer.
