    Price:
    1725
    Strings:
    4
    Location:
    British Columbia
    1974 - 75 Gibson Triumph Bass, in fantastic condition with only some wears that you would typically see on an instrument that is 40+ years old.

    The goods:
    - Plays amazingly
    - Headstock has never been repaired
    - Neck is straight
    - Frets have minimal wears
    - All electronics function as they should
    - Comes with original bridge cover
    - No neck dive
    - 10lbs, these basses tend to be much heavier than that

    The not so bads:
    - Non-original knobs
    - Non-original hardshell case
    - Replica control plate (cost me $100 US), will include the original but it will need to be repaired as it's missing a piece of plastic

    Price Drop! $1725 USD $1850 USD shipped lower 48 USA & Canada. Payment must be with either Cash, Postal MO or PayPal E-Check payment.

    Is the scale length 34"?

    Its scale length is 30" and due to this fact, the bass doesn't have some of the issues that you may see on a full scale Les Paul, ie, neck dive or further reach of 1st fret. In fact, coming from a Fender background, I felt right at home when I picked it up for the first time.

    I own a Triumph. Hands down one of the best sounding basses I have played.

    Incredible price for a hugely under-rated bass.
