    I picked this up here a few weeks ago. It's a very cool bass, but I don't think it is for me.

    Mid 90's Les Paul bass 5 string. Really nice flamed
    amber top. This is the "deluxe" model with 2 bartolini humbuckers and an active 2 band preamp. The bass has a very well done headstock repair. You have to look for the repair to find it. It can't be felt and is completely stable.

    The string spacing is narrow. If you're a rock and roll pick player, this could be your dream bass. This bass has gobs of thick, ballsy, rock and roll tone. Comes with a brown Gibson USA hardshell case.

    I'm willing to listen to trade offers. I'd be interested in 4 or 5 strings, would prefer p basses, j basses, but will consider others. I love maple boards.

    Hopefully the previous owner wont mind me using his pics. I can snap more if an interested buyer needs them

    Cash price $650 + actual shipping from 44883.

    Weight 9.3 lbs, 34 inch scale, string spacing is about 16.5.. I would guess. I will try to find or get an accurate measurement.

    Nobody is stupid enough to actually pay me to play their gear.
    These basses are great and actually super rare.

    I owned the exact same model and loved it. Super easy to play and sound huge.

    I would have to check dimensions to see if its possible, but if you pick up the dime for shipping, I'd be glad to ship it there.

    It wouldn't be a true Gibson without a headstock repair.
