    hey all! I have a 1969 Gibson EB-0 that I’d like to figure some stuff out about. I’m not sure how much the EB-0 would be valued at, here’s some pics for some determination. It’s not in the best condition by far, but I feel it’s still got some worth, thanks!

    Beautiful bass! Looks like it has a headstock repair and a crack in the body. Without the crack and repair a '69 would go for around $1,000. With the condition of your bass I would say it's worth between $500-$700. Recently I picked up a well worn but solid 67 EB0 for $500 that was a lucky grab.

    I just picked up a 71 slot head eb-0 husk I've been resto-modding. If yours is all original maybe about 1k. They've gone up in value the last few years.
    I'm very happy with mine so far. I was even able to mount new black chrome Gotoh tuners to the slotted headstock (70/71) without any modification. Also with a black hipshot 2 point replacement bridge and Dimarzio model one.
    I got my husk (which has a professional headstock repair) for only $240 shipped, about half the going rate.
    Nice find. Hold onto it or you'll regret it in a few years.

  7. I'm thinking 1K without the headstock repair but I agree with Scott that the repair knocks the value down into the $500-$700 range.

    If you will try some GHS Bass Boomers, you will be amazed at how much mud you can remove from the old girl without touching the pickup (I'm assuming the pup is original). Set number GHS_3035, 30-31 inch scale, .050"-.107" gauge. Under $20 at most on-line vendors.
