1972/73 Gibson EB3 bass guitar in excellent and all original condition including the case. Walnut finish. Serial number:056230. Weight:9.3 lbs. I've listed it as a 72/73 because although the serial indicates 70-72 the pots are from early 73 suggesting the guitar was built in 72 but didn't have the pots put in until early 73, when it likely left the Gibson factory.

This Gibson is very clean and a great player. The frets are in excellent shape, the neck is straight with no breaks or issues, there's one small ding to the finish just by the neck pickup on the E string side. The headstock has a couple of small scrapes on the edge at the end. The truss rod has plenty of room to move. All electronics and hardware are in good working order. The action is set nice and low. Fully set up and checked over by my technician.

This guitar has a 2 just above the serial referring to it being a factory 2nd. This was usually done by quality control regarding the finish on the instrument. Due to the natural play wear on this bass it is impossible to see what the original problem was.
