    Was it an ES335 Bass or the Gibson Midtown Bass? I've seen pictures of the new Gibson Midtown. It looks like a slightly smaller body than ES335 or the old EB2.

    If it has binding on the back side it's not a Midtown. Lovely bass...with a lovely price to match, I'll bet...

    It's not a Midtown. Different pickups, pickup placement, binding and control layout.

    Mmmm, so tasty. I've been interested in something like this for ages. Unfortunately, I feel like they will be about as affordable as an actual '60's model. :(

    Horrible bridge. Otherwise it's gorgeous.
