    Hello, selling a '78 Gibson Grabber in deep wine red.

    I bought this from Dave's Guitar in LaCrosse WI last year.
    Great bass, but in need of some cash. :(

    Overall in great condition. EC/EC-
    Minor playing wear. Some small cosmetic marks on the body, but considering it's age.......a beauty.
    8.6lbs
    No issues with the bass.
    Truss rod works smoothly. Straight neck.
    Low action, and no buzz.
    All hardware and electronics work as they should.
    It's a very dark deep wine red color.
    Comes with original hardshell case.

    ^ I could not get the cleaning rag fibers off and the natural light really brought them out!
    It's not nearly as that grungy looking in real life.

    ^Same with the back. Glad you can see the slight flame to it now.

    Neck is perfect!

    Good price IMO for that color. You have any pics in brighter light?

    Are the pickups original? Single coil or humbuckers?
