    Up for grabs is a 1972 Gibson EB-0 bass. I had this up on here some time ago but took some better pictures and revamped a few things so decided to start a new post. This is a players bass, definitely meant to be used. I bought this years ago locally. I don't have a lot of information on it prior to me owning it. There are a few issues that I've been noticing. The input jack is very finicky and if it's not positioned exactly right it cuts in and out. I think this is an easy fix but something I haven't done. I've never had it set up and have noticed a bit of fret buzz. Could use a set up and definitely new strings. There are a few nicks here and there which I took pictures of. Comes with an Epiphone hard case, strap and original bridge cover with screws. I've been playing drums for 15 years so this has always been a hobby for me. I've got a kiddo on the way which is mainly why I'm selling. This is a tough one to let go of. I bought this when I didn't have much to my name. I really suffered for it and it has a lot of sentimental value.
    Asking $749 shipped. I'm open to offers but am totally ok keeping this so I'm in no rush to sell. Ask any and all questions, I'm by no means an expert but I'll do my best. Thanks!
