This is very unusual as it has the slotted headstock which was available for only a few years, and very rare in that it has a 34.5" scale, whereas most Gibson basses had a 32" scale, and Fender's had a 34 scale. This has two pickups and a rotary selector switch. Lots of mojo with this, lots of signs of use, it must have given a living to some bassist during it's lifetime. It's in excellent playing condition, and very deep-sounding, great bass sound.
It's has a slight headstock crack on one side during it's lifetime, didn't break right off, and it's visible in the pics, very well done repair, hard to spot in normal circumstances and doesn't affect playability or sound. Very unusual, I'd never seen one of these before I got this. Sticker on the back saying that it was bought at Macari's music shop in London. The previous owner (AF) has contacted me and has given me this information.This used to be mine. I had it for over 30 years. Got it from Bill russell when he was down by the train station in Cork City for the princely sum of --- pounds. The crack was fixed by Steve Nixon.
