    For sale is my 1978 Gibson Grabber.
    All original except for the pick guard and pots.

    Needs a little TLC. Bridge saddle height screws need replacement.
    1 of the truss rod cover holes on the neck needs to be plugged and redrilled. Still holds the screw but it could fall out. The neck screws could be replaced. I've never removed the neck because of their being stripped.
    I had planned on cleaning it up and fixing it's little issues but I just don't have the time.

    Finish is a 7 out of 10. Typical scratches and normal wear, maybe a few bumps and dings. I've taken these pictures with a ton of light so it's showing everything at it's worst. Example: Those front scratches near the bridge aren't visible in regular light.
    When I bought the bass there was a white diamond painted on the back.
    I carefully sanded off the white diamond without removing any of the black base paint. The pick guard was rattle canned white so I had a new one made. Fit and finish is perfect.

    Really nice bass, just needs a setup and the bridge screws replaced.
    Will be sad to see it go after having it so long but I just don't play it and need $$.
