    Hey guys!

    I have been offered a 1968 Gibson EB-2DC bass in a trade for a bass of mine but I don't know what to value the Gibson at. It is a very cool bass but like many other Gibson EB-2 basses, the headstock broke off at some point and was repaired (stable but not a pro job is what I was told).

    Other than that issue, the bass is all original but features some dents and such. If I were to resell the bass, what could I be looking to get for it? I have done some research on the prices for EB-2 basses but this has the added variable of the repair, which is something I haven't come across before.

    I’ve bought and sold a couple of these recently. In my estimation a clean example with no headstock break and original condition can fetch $2200-$2500. The headstock break, while common, is a detractor. Depending on how clean the neck looks post-repair and assuming no playability issues, I would knock off $500-$1000 for the break bringing the value down to around $1500 give or take.

    My 2c. Hope it helps.
