    i've owned this bass for 15 years and it's one of the nicest EB-3's that i've seen or played. it's in great condition for a 49 year old instrument. This one has zero issues (no cracks or repairs), has a straight neck with low action and minimal fret wear. all of the electronics are original and untouched and work perfectly. this one also has its original ebony tug bar, chrome bridge pickup cover and mute system so it is 100% complete. IMO, it would be very hard to find a nicer stock 1968 EB-3 than this one. The original gold plush lined, black tolex hard shell case has one missing latch clip which doesn't affect its operation, and is also in extremely nice condition for its age (no rips, breaks or tears). was $2999 NOW $2599 + actual shipping (via Fedex). paypal accepted.

    That is an excellent specimen of an EB3 from my eyes. Should sell in about 30 seconds. GLWTS
