So I'm cruising through the local CL, looking for something to help me part with some of my 'bass money' envelope, when I clicked on this... Intrigued, I texted the dude and agreed to meet him after he got off work. Well, I left his house with this super lightweight, but sad, mutilated, little short scale bass that I think was worth the money. After all, anything playable for $50 is a good deal...right? There are no obvious marks of identification on it, other than the 'Gibson' decal on the headstock, and whether it is what the seller says it is, I really don't know. It definitely needs some work: the action is too high even for me; the volume pot distorts past 6; and both the pickguard and cavity cover are warped like crazy. Who knows what else I'll find when I start digging into it. I'm thinking I'll just do the best I can with setting it up and bring it to the firehouse as a fretless practice bass, but I'm half-tempted to strip it, amputate it's other side, and refinish it...just for fun and experience.
