Olivia's Vintage would like to present this original early 1961 Gibson EB-0 bass that has been refinished Pelham Blue. It has a great playing neck with great frets. It's all original with the exception of the '60's Firebird banjo style tuning keys and one of the pots. It's also 100% complete (with the exception of one capacitor) along with its original nickel plated palm rest and spacers. The case is a slightly later Gibson hardshell case. In early '61 this was the latest version of the slab body EB-0 as it has the larger headstock that originally had paddle tuning keys on it. Prior to the refinish, all screw holes from those tuning keys were properly filled and are now undetectable as this set of original Gibson Firebird tuning keys look very natural on the back of the headstock. The tuning peg holes were left at their original size, so the ferrules don't quite fill in all the space which is slightly visible from the face of the headstock. This unique and rare bass looks incredible with nicks + dings, typical finish checking, and other cosmetic wear. All electronics work and sound great.

Our guitars are usually packed the same business day that we receive payment. We take the utmost care when packing our guitars and basses to assure that they arrive safely. We detune all guitars so that there is no tension on the neck, then the guitar is packed inside the case so that it does not move during shipment. After the guitar is safely packaged inside the case we wrap the case with several layers of half-inch tall bubble wrap. After the guitar is wrapped it is placed into one of our custom-made double-walled cardboard boxes of the appropriate size. We then use packing peanuts or packing paper to fill any negative space in the box so that the guitar is secured with several inches of padding and does not move around. This way, even if the guitar is mishandled during shipment, it will arrive safe and sound. Our guitars are usually shipped the same business day that we receive payment. Most of our guitars are shipped UPS, and items are always fully insured. If you would like a guitar shipped with FedEx or USPS, please let us know and we can accommodate your needs. Because of insurance the price of shipping will vary, so please email us for an exact shipping quote. Shipping for most guitars will be around $50.
If you feel that we have misrepresented anything, please contact us within 48 hours, and ship the guitar back to us. After we receive the guitar and it is in the same condition as when it was sold, we will give you a full refund minus the shipping charges.
