Gibson EB-13 bass, with Gibson hard case. Sunburst

Not many of these around. Ash body, with old school nitro lacquer and a visible wood grain contour. Set maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard.

Babicz hi-mass bridge fitted as standard from the factory. The bridge is superb, and rock solid. The saddles (once adjusted) are locked down with an Allen key. Controls are volume, volume, master tone. Either of which can be coil tapped via the push-pull volume pots.

I've had it 7 years. When I got it, It needed fret levelling/ dressing which was done by Shane Haigh aka the guitar surgeon. Nut has been filed for 50-105 gauge strings. It's fitted with Di-Addario roundwound nickels. The action is set low.

Neck profile is, feel wise, halfway between a P and Jazz. The scratch plate is cracked by 1 screw. I've seen this on every used EB-13, it's from a design flaw. The plate flexes when you take the lead out. (Use 2 hands to stop this, you get used to it). Gibson moved the Jack to the bottom of the body on the EB-14. In a summary, you get jazz bass single coil to exact Thunderbird tones from this.

But without the Tbird's awkward ergonomics. The Gibson hard case has a few cosmetic scuffs, as per photos. Leather strap can be included at no extra cost. The bass is unmarked, save for some buckle rash on the nitro which wears easier than poly lacquer does. My amp is at home if you'd like to try it out first.
