    Well...here is yet another of my "closet finds". This one was actually stored under a bed for about the last 20 years per the lady I bought it from. Its a Harmony Marquis EBO/EB3 in pretty amazing shape. Looks to be probably a early-mid 70's model. I would guess MIJ but I'm not sure...as I AM NOT an authority on these old basses. It had pretty high action, but I gave the truss rod 1 full turn and it set up very nicely!! Neck looks very straight. (yup, I got the orig truss rod tool with it). I think its a 32" scale. The weight is only 8.1 pounds!! Fingers really well, and sounds just like a big FAT EBO. The pots are smooth and quiet, seems like everything works as it should...very quiet pickups too. There appears to be ZERO fret wear...they actually look like brand new yet. I put a brand new set of GHS Brite flats on it...they seem to be just the right strings for it!! Hardly any nicks, no chips, and just a couple light scuffs...this should really wax up great!! I got what is probably the original hard case with it too...still in pretty good shape.

    Anyway...looking at $375 shipped with the case on this one.

    Probably not...looks almost Fender-esque...which is probably a good thing, as the old EB0 bridges were pretty crapola.

    Very interested. How is the neck?....super fat like the 60s EB0s?

    Nope, not a log.....it actually feels a bit thinner than a P or J bass neck...very comfy! I haven't measured it, but I do believe its a 32" scale.

    Did you sell this one yet. I am interested. Do you have a think or buying price set?
     
  20. Since it isn't the original bridge how is the intonation? I am thinking about this.
