Continuing with our cool basses, we have this early production Gibson L9-S...better known as The Ripper! Based on the serial number and specs, we are saying that it's a 1974 model. The bass is all original with an ebony finish and rosewood fingerboard. Overall, the bass is in very good condition with no cracks, breaks or repairs. There is standard wear/dings that you would expect as you can see in the photos, but it gives the guitar great character. The bass ships in it's original hard shell case.
There are currently ZERO black Rippers available for sale in the US on Reverb or eBay so this one is bound to go quick!
