    What would you like to know other than 'Buy It' right
    away? It is a rare and beautiful instrument. If it is
    in original condition with original pickups it is quite valuable.

    I have played mine for 26 years and I absolutely
    love it and would never sell it.

    The neck pickups will be a bit muddy. I use the
    bridge pickups mostly and EQ to get the right sound.
    They usually are short scale, with a 30.5 inch scale
    length. This makes them very fast. It plays as fast
    as a regular guitar.

    There is a thread in the Mike Watt Ask a Pro section
    you might want to read on his Eb3, which he has modified.

    But don't let that bass get away!!!!
