These were only around for the last couple of years of the eighties and into the middle nineties. Rumor has it that Gibson called an end to production after the accounting department discovered the build quality was so high that they were literally making zero dollars on them. Top flight components all the way pretty much agrees with that:-
Solid Maple body provides the mass and density for real bass action, (see weight, below)
Full 34” scale Maple neck
20-fret Rosewood fingerboard
All black chrome hardware including tuners
String-thru bridge, with individual saddles
One P-style pickup and one J-style
Individual volume controls for each pickup, with a master tone control
And the whole deal came wrapped up in a quality Epiphone hard case!
A great bass
No corners seem to have been cut anywhere in this cool bit of eighties design work. The board is a lovely dark chocolatey slab of Rosewood; the Maple neck features dead-straight grain; the tailpiece and saddles are amply solid chunks of metal. All up, as we noted at the front, a great bass for very little outlay.
Condition is somewhere in the Very Good+ to Excellent- range, with the Epi hard case similar. All original, other than a brass nut, plus we took the opportunity of dropping in a complete set of authentic replacement pots, as the two volumes were a bit scratchy.
