Epiphone B5 - $1950 SOLD

For sale is my Epiphone B5 bass made in Kalamzoo, MI. This is a great playing bass that has been recently professionally set up and is in great condition. Here are the details:

Upper bout - 20 1/2"
Lower bout - 26 3/4"
Rib depth - 7 1/2"
String Length- 41"
Serial # 996, production 1959-60
Strung w/ Obligatos
Neck is solid and has never been broken.

This bass is in excellent condition. It does have a slightly caved in top on the bass side but this has been professional repaired 5+ years ago and has been holding just fine. I just had a new sound post, new bridge with adjusters, and new tail gut installed. It also has an upgraded endpin and fingerboard dressing a few years back (previous owner). This bass is got a great thump, growl, sustain, and would be perfect for pizz only playing, it is a bit too wolfy for arco. Prefer local sale but can talk details if someone wants to ship.
