For your consideration is this 1970’s Ampeg Little Stud, short scale bass (GEB 101) in transparent cherry.  This hard to find bass plays great with low action (.100 on the bass side and .90 on the treble side). Frets are in great shape with very little evidence of wear.  All tuners work smoothly and chrome is in like new condition. It has a fresh set of round wound strings with no play time on them.

Both pots have been cleaned and the body is in great condition with only a couple small dings but no cracks, scratches or buckle rash. There is a slight ding on the top of the headstock as shown.  The finish is very shiny with no weather checking. 

During the four years I’ve owned it, it has seen zero play time and been stored vertically in my smoke and pet free studio/office. 

The pick up has been removed to use in another Little Stud that I own in black so I’m letting this one go as is. It’s a great chance to customize this one with the pick up of your choice and desired sound. It is missing a few of the pick guard screws which is obviously an easy fix. The volume and tone knobs have been replaced with black dice knobs which are fully functional and cool looking.  I believe these basses were originally sold with a chrome pick up cover and tug bar but they have not been present in the time I’ve owned it. After market versions can be purchased if desired. 

If you’re a fan of short scale length, this Japanese made Ampeg bass is a perfect candidate to make into your daily player. At 32.5 inch scale length and weighing in at 9lbs 11oz, it is easy on the back plus fun and fast to play. 

There is no case included but the instrument will be well packed in bubble wrap, boxed and secured for insured shipping through UPS or USPS to only the lower 48 states. No international shipping. Free local pick up can be arranged. I’m located in East Central Indiana.

As this bass is used it is being sold as-is with no returns unless it arrives in a condition other than as shown. No warrantee is expressed or implied. All pictures are considered part of the description. Please ask any and all questions before purchasing. 

Thanks for looking and for your time and consideration.
