1969. Girl (awesome girl) buys her boyfriend a new bass. Not just a regular 'ole bass.....a Gibson.
Thankfully, the fella had enough foresight to keep this bass over the years without modifying it or trading it off for something "new" during the 80s. Hats off to preserving American history.
Sadly, I forgot to shoot a photo of all the angles and parts; even the endpin that allows you to play it as a stand up has been retained.
100% percent, collector quality, untouched, yada yada. It's just plain cool!!
Really glad this guy has preserved his EB1 so well. I strongly encouraged him to keep it and not hock it on fleaBay. However, if the need arises I would be first in line with a fistful of casharoo.
