Epiphone is proud to reintroduce the classic bass that players have been waiting for, the Toby Deluxe IV. With its roots in the original designs of Michael Tobias and introduced over 10 years ago, the Toby brought real innovation to modern bass players. And now, Epiphone and Tobias team up to bring back this classic design, once again putting cutting edge sounds and designs in the hands of all musicians. The Toby Deluxe IV features the classic ergonomic body shape that bassists find so easy to play, providing a focused, finished sound that has all the punch of an upright bass with all the clear detail of an electric. And now, the Toby Deluxe IV comes with an Active Tonexpressor Bass Enhancement Control for making creative blends and fine adjustments to cut through dense mixes.
