Calling any Gibson bass aficionados

Recommended Posts

Hi guy

all the best

Impossible to say without handling it, really. Looks OK, but not possible to see anything in detail in the photos. Have a look inside the upper F hole for the label. Could be cheap because they are not as  popular as solid Gibsons. They have limited tonal options - they do the old string bass thump quite well, but clarity is not their forte and they can be prone to feedback if you try to push the volume. I'd be on the lookout for physical issues - neck stability and cracks in the body, especially - given their light construction. If you get it, stick to lighter gauge strings.

Seems very weird to me why it would have a lefty bridge! Seems impossible to get the intonation right with that in place. 

That's a fairly rare bridge because not many lefties were made, but it's also damaged (it's bent at the low E side).
