About This Listing

Vintage 1976 Gibson L-9 S Ripper Bass. While this bass is not 100% original it sounds amazing and is a monster player. We are selling this for a local pro player that has fallen on hard times so he is reluctantly selling some of his gear. At some point he had the Wenge fingerboard installed replacing the Maple one and it feels great. It also now has a wood nut. We don’t believe the knobs to be original and it is missing the bridge cover plate. At some point it looks like it had a Fender style bridge judging by the holes under the current one. There is a light rectangular spot in the finish on the top bottom edge that is from a sticker that was there for many years but was recently removed. The pickguard has a few cracks down by the output jack. Weight is 10.6 lbs. The original case is MIA so bass will come in a new padded gig bag. Overall this is one very unique bass!
