or Sale or Trade: Vintage MIJ EB3 Copy with scrolled headstock
I finished restoring this Made in Japan EB3 copy about 2 years ago and it's been sitting around collecting dust ever since. I'm guessing it's from late 60's - early 70's. Everything works and it plays great. Pots are a little noisy but original to the bass. Very cool vintage vibe. I don’t have any info on what brand it is as the headstock was stripped when I got it, but it looks very close to an old Ibanez. 34" scale neck.
When I picked it up was in pretty rough shape and the body was a mess from the previous owner getting a little too aggressive at stripping the paint. All of the body contours have been restored and it has been painted the original black color. 5 coats of base color and about 12 coats of clear lacquer. Wet sanded and buffed.
The truss rod cover is on it now. I didn't have it finished when I took the pictures.
I would like to sell this but I have no idea on what to price it at as there isn't a whole lot out there to compare it to. So I'm going to start it at $375 shipped but feel free to throw an offer my way. I would consider some trades but they would have to be something different. Bonus points if it's a 5-string but I'm open to anything other than a jazz bass.
PM me with any questions.
Stingray #143, Christian P&W #686, Jazz Bass #586, 5 String #438, Crappy Bassist with Expensive Gear #31
I don't know if this helps but I'm almost positive that bass is an Electra 2261 tri-tone. I had one that I recently sold about a month ago, and it had that same "mustache" scrolled slot head, Tuners, Top horn slightly longer than the bottom, and bridge cover all match exactly. They where made in the Matsumoko plant. I don't know if that is the correct neck plate on the back or if you have the serial numbers edited out but the first 2 numbers on the plate are the year of manufacture. I hope this helps.
