You don’t have to be a bass player to admire the sleek lines of the Tobias Killer B 5-string. The company is firmly committed to building every Tobias bass to the lofty standards for design, quality, and performance that originally brought Mike Tobias’s line of bass guitars to the attention of players seeking the finest bolt-on and neck-thru instruments. Today’s Guitar of the Day has a body constructed of premium swamp ash, which is extremely durable, but also light enough for those gigs that seem to go all night. It’s also just the right weight to nicely balance the MultiLam Asym 5-string bolt-on neck with its 24-fret pau ferro fingerboard. This particular neck profile makes it easier to move up and down the maple neck with its purple heart or bubinga stringer.
But having a superbly playable bass is only half of what makes this – or any other bass for that matter – truly a masterpiece. As you’d expect on a bass with the Tobias pedigree, the Killer B 5-string comes with a pair of specially designed Bartolini curve-top neck and bridge pickups, which are carefully matched to the onboard Bartolini preamp. For sculpting your own specific tone, you have a master volume control with push/pull Slap Tone, along with a Pan-Pot, Bass, Midrange, and Treble controls. This allows each Killer B player to precisely zero in on his or her own distinctive sound, because the last thing you want when you’re up on stage or laying down tracks in the studio is a generic sound. This baby is up to the challenge and comes complete with a deluxe plush-lined hardshell case that will protect your investment for decades to come. If you’re interested, don’t hesitate!
