    NEW PRICE 4/20/08....One of the finest examples of Ventura (Japan) copies. This one is in beautiful shape...barely any player wear at all. 30" scale. Original except for nut, which was recently replaced. Original (beat) chip case. The finish is in amazing condition...closet classic. No finish checking! The magnificent smooth tone you would expect and supple feel from the short scale. Frets and neck in excellent shape for it's age. Near new set of D'Addario scale-correct RW's.

    $350. PayPal OK. Otherwise, bank cashier's check...sorry, I do not accept personal checks. Cash OK for local sale, of course.

    Buyer pays actual shipping charges and appropriate insurance. I will package for protection.

    Here's a couple more.....BTW, that's the "old" nut....the new one is perfect and installed by my tech at Mass. St. Music in Lawrence. He came from Lakland basses.

    Hhhhmmm...no interest, yet. Kind of surprising. Because the '69-'70 years were exceptional quality production years for Ventura. I had a "same years" EB-O copy while I was in Japan at the time. Top notch bass. This one is, too. No matter, if it doesn't move...I'll keep it.

    it's only one pickup, right? does the toggle switch work like the Gibson version's push button (ie, output gets hotter and fuller)?

    I don't notice that kind of difference. It seems like more on-off-on. Yes, one pick-up. But as I have experienced...not as "muddy" as the Gibson. This is a qualified observation as I have had Gibson EB-0, EB-1, EB-3, and played Gibson EB-2's...as well as owned a Japanese Greco EB-0 and Ventura EB-0 of the same era and purchased then, in Japan.

    Thanks for your inquiry.
