1978 Gibson Grabber G3 Bass, Natural

  • Sale
  • Regular price £1,595.00


1978 Gibson Grabber G3 in excellent condition, Natural finish over an Alder body. It's missing the metal bridge cover but otherwise all original including the hard case. Serial: 72078062. Weight: 9 lbs 11 oz.

Arrow-shaped headstock 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.

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 finish has a few small patches of wear and only a couple of tiny nick and dings. The frets are in good condition having been cleaned and dressed by my tech. Nut Width: 41 mm. Depth: 20.75 mm. This bass has been fully set up with a fresh set of strings. Come and try it out at my showroom in Hoxton London.

Condition Excellent 8.75/10
Case OHSC
Weight 9 lbs 11 oz
