    Pretty much new condition with no dings or lumps or cat scratching post wounds. A very light and very versatile bass, just over 8 pounds using the scientific bathroom scale method. One-piece ash body with a nicely grained rosewood board, two seriously whomping humbuckers each with a pull-to-go-single volume pot and a master tone. 1 3/4" nut width with a 19mm Babicz Full Contact bridge at the other end. Gibson put some thought into these great basses, the day that they decide to make one in a sixer is the same day that I break my hip lurching for the checkbook. Includes the furry white OHSC, $850 shipped / insured CONUS.

    Bump for a bass I'd like to try. Always liked Gibson basses.

    Curious how these sound compared to an EBMM?
    More like the old-school MudBucker, or closer to say, a Thunderbird? (I guess with the way it's wired up, there's quite a few options...)

    I play a Stingray HH and other than the passive vs. active thing the EB5 is pretty close to that, perhaps a bit more aggressive. The single coil modes surprised me quite a bit on these as there is no drop off and a substantial change of character, more so than any other dual-to-single rig than I have personally experienced. Excellent bass, I'm just tired of reaching for the C string...
