1976 Gibson Grabber G3, Black finish. All original with the exception of the gig bag. Arrow-shaped heastock inspired by the flying V. Contoured body edge vaguely echoes the SG, its offset horns were clearly reminiscent of other popular makes, as was its bolt-on neck (4 bolt). The strings go through the body allowing for greater sustain and this bass definitely has that, along with a superb tone. Serial: 00196397. Weight: 9 lbs 11.5oz.

The G3 features three single coil pickups wired in hum bucking configuration. The pickups were designed by Bill Lawrence. The pickup selector works as follows: Forward position activates the front and middle pickups in humbucking configuration. The back position activates the middle and back pickup in the same manner.The middle position activates all three pickups for what Gibson coined a "buck-and-a-half".

The body has play wear and a few small nick and dings, there's also buckle rash on the back. The frets are in good shape having been cleaned and polished by my tech.

The neck is nice and slim. Nut Width: 39.39mm. Depth: 20.92mm. at the 12th: 0.978". This bass has been fully set up by my technician with a great action. Come and try it out at my showroom in Hoxton London.
