    I just don’t have the time to play right now; and when I do play, I suck. I’m selling off all my basses but one, just in case I get the bug again. Here’s what I got:

    Rare vintage 1974 Gibson EB-3L.
    Vibe for days. Super clean. 34” scale. The deal with this bass is that it had an accident earlier this year. I sold it here on TB and @#$%^! FedEx dropped it during shipping, snapping the headstock. Between the buyer, Fedex and me, we got the refunding and what-not all squared away and I got the bass back. I had the headstock repaired professionally at Killer Vintage guitars in St. Louis – the best in STL. Their luthier did a FANTASTIC job on it. It is back in playing condition and sounds amazing. The case is super clean, too. A great chance to get a sweet, vintage bass for a lot less than market price.
    $700 shipped CONUS

    In the pic below, the white line above the "O" in the Gibson logo is a scratch, not a crack.

    Here you can see where the headstock was cracked. What shame! It's back in business now though...

    Wow. Is the case original? If it is, that's the cleanest 40-year old case I've ever seen! If this was shortscale, I'd be thinkin' hard about it; this is a great deal.
