Nice score! I got a vintage Hamer Scarab bass from your ebay seller, and was quite pleased. Enjoy it man!

Yeah, Olivias is great - one of the best IMO. I know that if I'm not happy, they'll take it back. I have a feeling I'm gonna be pretty happy though.

I would have to REALLY REALLY need money to ever sell that one. They come up on the bay pretty often. I found mine on CL while visiting NYC.
If all the parts are there with a bad/stripped finish - $1500.00 - 1700.00 - all the parts and a good finish - about 2K . They seem to fluctuate a good bit but those are typical prices.

Ya... I am kidding. As a blues guy I love that bass. Could never afford one if one did come up. Do we have any real pics of that here?

Back to our regularly scheduled T_Bird love-in.

I didn't know Gibson was even making birds in 77. I always hear about 76 and 79 birds.

I had a legit '78 (per the serial number), 9+ condition. It played great but I just couldn't get into how it sounded. Mind you I have an '02 TBird that I'll never flip. Ah well, diffeent strokes....

This looks like a nice one and I hope it works for you.

I'm always a bit apprehensive about buying instruments with no player wear - This one is a little beat down which makes me think think it's probably a good one.. someone, obviously, enjoyed playing it a lot.

i totally agree, nothing worse than a minty vintage bass you have worry about getting scratches, vs one thats well worn, feels like home and if you scratch it the more the merrier
