Vintage 1967 Gibson EB0 Cherry Bass John Birch Original Case

This much loved short scale bass was the choice of so many for it’s psychedelic punch! In August 1974 it was fitted with a John Birch ‘Hyperflux G’ pick-up & stereo wired to bring it in line with an EB3 for much wider tonal possibilities; this mod was carried out by the legendary John Birch himself! Complete with original case & Gibson tags!

Serial Number: 007702

Weight: 7.8 lbs

This guitar has been checked over and restrung, where necessary, to make it a playable standard. To find out more about what our service includes, please check out our terms and conditions before purchasing.

Condition

Overall very good condition with slight wear & tear to the finish. The original frets are in great condition. Desirable patina and character that can only come about through years of playing and not via a relicing process in a custom shop!

Please have a close look at the high resolution photographs below, as these form part of our description.

Originality

Internally and externally original apart from the John Birch pickup mod.

At The Music Locker we will do all we can for you to get the instrument you want. You’re more than welcome to come along and have a play on this through one of our vintage amplifiers!

The Music Locker prides itself on offering vintage and collectable pre-owned instruments and equipment (the Products).

We take all reasonable steps to ensure the equipment has been inspected by a competent person in the UK to ensure it complies with UK safety standards. This may mean it does not comply with the current standards in the country in which it will be subsequently used. It is the purchasers’ responsibility to ensure it is inspected by a competent person knowledgeable with the relevant electrical safety standards within that country, prior to connecting to any live electrical circuit.

It is the philosophy of The Music Locker to keep all items as original as possible, only changing original components when absolutely necessary. This includes valves, capacitors, transformers, potentiometers, frets, etc. This gives the buyer the option of tailoring to their exact needs, and may mean that the item is not operating at optimum performance levels. Therefore, your personal preference may differ, depending on your circumstances (i.e. collector or musician), and you may decide to service the item in more depth upon receiving.

The Music Locker cannot accept responsibility for any costs of refurbishment to a standard different to the one advertised.
