    I have had this bass for close to 4 decades. And really haven't played it much. Cool bass.

    The nickel tuners feel like they've got a bit of corrosion. The chrome is really better but nickel is cooler. I might even have the covers somewhere.

    These aren't the most fungible of instruments. I think Gibson only made a couple of thousand of them. I'm going to start asking $3500. If that's out of hand talk to me.

    Headstock hasn't been broken unlike so many others. When you come to look at the bass bring cash because if you break it you bought it. I've protected this headstock for most of my life. Time for someone else to do it.

    I just took a quick pic. If I get interest I'll do more and hopefully better.

    I'm located mere minutes from rt 80 in Rockaway NJ. Looking for local pickup. I'm not into packing.

    These pics might be a bit better.

    I'm not the best photographer and am open to suggestions as to getting better pics.

    I'm in Alberta, Canada. :( something this expensive would get nailed for taxes crossing the border. It really sucks. Such a beauty. Some day I'll have one.

    UPS would charge the extra large package surcharge and then there's aborder charge and then there's the import taxes.

    There's a reason I like local pickup for most devices.

    Ya it's not he shipping charges I would be worried about. It's the tax called "duty" or if that's not applicable then we for sure get nailed with GST(goods and services tax) so tack another 5% on to the declared value. It's rough.
