Selling my Ebony 1976 Gibson “The Ripper”
bass. It is in great condition for a 37 year old instrument - the finish is intact (save some scratches and buckle rash). I have almost all the original parts, including OHSC, and it has a mod:

- The original pickguard was cracked from age when I received it, so I had a new white one built by a local repair shop, along with a matching TR cover. I have OTRC, but not the PG (it was in pieces).
- Had a Seymour Duncan Baselines MM pickup/preamp installed. The original pickup in the neck position isn’t wired - just there for cosmetics. [s]I recently moved but I am pretty sure I can put my hands on[/s] I have the bridge pickup, the chicken-head knob, and I have the 3 original speed knobs.
- I’ll need to check the cavity and see if any routing was done when installing the MM - if there was it was pretty minimal.
- I never had the original bridge cover.
It was my first bass, given to me by an extended uncle in 1999, and it has been stowed in a closet for the past 10 years. This will need a setup as I haven’t played it in forever.

I found the bridge pup, chicken-head knob, speed knobs, original pots, etc:
