1976 Gibson Ripper Bass, Natural

  • Sale
  • Regular price £1,650.00


1976 Gibson Ripper Bass, Natural finish in very condition. Serial number 00156485, weight 8 lbs 8 oz. It's been re-fretted but otherwise all original and complete including the case. The case has seen better days but the latches all work correctly and the handle is still intact. 

The body and headstock have a few small nicks and dings to the finish, light play wear and a small patch of buckle rash on the back of the body. The neck is straight and the truss rod works as it should. This bass has been set up with a set of Black beauty strings. Come and try it out at my showroom in Roundhay, Leeds. The pot codes date to 50th week of 1975. It has a slim neck with a nut width of 40.75mm. Depth at the 1st fret: 21.75 mm.

The Ripper was designed by Bill Lawrence who was working for Gibson at the time. The contoured body edges vaguely echo the SG, its offset horns were clearly reminiscent of other popular makes. It has a set neck and through-body stringing allowing for greater sustain and this bass definitely has that, along with a superb tone.

Condition Excellent 8.75/10
Case OHSC
