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.
The Toby Deluxe IV features a solid radiata body and a flush-mount, low profile, adjustable bridge. The Toby Deluxe’s most legendary feature is its hard maple Tobias™ Asymmetrical Neck profile which is a bolt-on design with recessed bolts and washers for easy adjustments. Tobias basses were among the first to feature an asymmetrical neck, a design where the neck is thinner on the lower side than on the upper side. The asymmetric back shape feels less bulky than standard bass necks allowing for maximum hand comfort. While these Satin finished necks might "feel" thinner, there is still sufficient thickness on the upper side to provide for excellent strength, stability and--best of all--deep, rich tone. Your thumb will find easy reference points as your hand glides up and down the fretboard. The neck has a 34” scale length for enhanced clarity, a rosewood fingerboard with a 12” fingerboard radius and a 1.68” nut. Satin finish options include Trans Amber, Trans Black, Trans Red, and Walnut and ebony.
The Toby Deluxe IV electronics feature classic Tobias-designed pickups with a Tobias TBR™ Dual Rail Humbucker in the neck and a Tobias TBT™ Dual Rail Humbucker at the bridge. Controls are all-metal Knurled knobs and include Master Volume, Pickup Blend with center Detent, and Master Tone. Also included is an Active Tonexpressor™ Bass Enhancement Control which enables bassists the option of making creative blends. The Active Tonexpressor™ is also a powerful ally on stage when you need fine adjustments to cut through dense mixes. The Active Tonexpressor™ uses an easy-to-change 9-volt battery.
The Toby Deluxe IV features Epiphone's rock solid hardware including deluxe diecast tuners with a 17:1 ratio ensuring lifelong tuning stability. The bridge is flush-mounted for a low profile and is fully adjustable.PRODUCT FEATURES
