    I had every intention of keeping this Gibson bass and refinishing it Pelham Blue... but have to let it go to pay some bills. It’s in nice condition (8.5/10) with some marks here and there (buckle rash & pickguard swirl, which barely show in the pics), but nothing serious on the front of the body or neck.

    The bass weighs 8 lbs with the Hipshot aluminum bridge and Gotoh Res-o-lite tuners. Excellent balance, and really as cool a passive bass as you will ever encounter. The push/pull for single/humbucker for each pickup is just awesome. Totally quiet, great design.

    I have the original knobs, Babicz bridge, and Grover Y-tuners — you can have your choice (my “upgrades” or the originals) for $800, or take both for $950. The Dunlop Straploks are included.

    I made two modifications: the edges of the fingerboard and frets have been very subtlety rounded smooth, and pots are now wired VOLUME (push/pull) — TONE (push/pull) — BALANCE. I just preferred that setup. Eric’s Guitars in Van Nuys did the work. (=$150 value)

    The fitted case is like new condition (never used). Shipping will be $50-$75 depending on your location. Or come meet me in southern California (Venice).
