Total looooooooongshot here, but you never know! This may just be what someone has been looking for. I have a beautiful 1975 Ebony Gibson Ripper that is as light as a feather. I don't have the official weight just yet, but it is light! I am looking to trade it ONLY for your Ebony Gibson Ripper that is maple (heavier) I have the original case too so maybe we can work something out! Again, this may be a long shot, and a total waste of time, but I just want to throw it out there to see for the heck of it! Shoot me a PM or a text at 646 529 1426 Many more pictures can be provided upon request as well. Thanks TB!!
