Here we have a unique piece from Gibson, a 1981 Grabber bass guitar. This instrument is truly an oddball; introduced in 1973, the Grabber basses come with a bolt-on neck with a V-shaped headstock, and strangest of all, a movable pick-up. This odd feature was meant to facilitate the changing of positions from neck to bridge. Furthermore, the pick-up was made to be brighter than a typical Gibson humbucker, further distinguishing this bass from the others. This particular piece was well used in its time and was definitely a fixer-upper. The body is pretty dinged up and the pickguard is chipped around some of the screws. The lower bout/wing shows a split repair. Luckily, though having been repaired, the neck seems to be in good condition and still plays well. This would be a great bass for anyone looking for a very different endeavor. Ships in its original hard-shell case.

Weight: 10 lbs.

6/10 (good condition) 1981 Made in the USA
