Gibson L9S RIPPER 1976 Electric Guitar USA Vintage Rare Maple with Hard Case

Gibson L9S RIPPER 1976 Electric Guitar USA Vintage Rare Maple with Hard Case

Chesterfield, Virginia, 238**, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

$3800

I bought this guitar around 1982. I played it in the high school marching band. It is a marvelous instrument that has always deserved a better player than myself. That being said, my only consolation in letting it go is that whoever owns it next plays the hell out it. They didn't call this model the Ripper for nothing and rock stars have long sought after this model built during this time. It sounds beautiful and it is painful for me to sell it. But I don't play it often and my home air ... more

Antioch, Tennessee, 370**, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

$1999

Very good condition 1976 Gibson Ripper Fretless in Ebony. No breaks. Model 1 and Model J pickups. Everything else is original. This one has seen some gigging as shown by the decent buckle rash on the back, but is still in very good shape. Tuners work great, and these pickups have a very nice snarl to them. All electronics work perfectly. One small hole added as pictured on the back of the bass, maybe for a strap button at one point. These fretless versions of the ripper are super cool and a nice... more

1974 Gibson Ripper Bass

1974 Gibson Ripper Bass

Coudersport, Pennsylvania, 169**, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

$3200

A serious bass for a discriminating collector or player. Very versatile tone options. Solid maple body and neck. Comes with original case. Equipped with flatwound strings for a darker tone but sounds great with roundwound strings. Some minor finish checking as can be expected on a nearly 50 year old instrument. I've played this bass regularly for decades and always get compliments on its great sound and uniqueness. I've made a minor alteration to the strap pin location. The original locations ... more

1972 Gibson L6-S Bass Prototype (Ripper, Grabber) Singlecut Sunburst

1972 Gibson L6-S Bass Prototype (Ripper, Grabber) Singlecut Sunburst

Syracuse, New York, 132**, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

$9000

1972 Gibson L6-S Bass Prototype (Ripper, Grabber) Singlecut Sunburst
 
This bass guitar is the prototype for the L6-S bass, a model that was never manufactured by Gibson. Although it is the prototype for an instrument that was not produced, it also seems to be a prototype of the Ripper and Grabber models introduced later that are constructed with the same materials (maple neck and body) and similar dimensions. The look of this one does foreshadow those later models

For sale is my 1976 Gibson L9-s Ripper, owned for about 6 years, recorded regularly and gigged approximately 3 times. Selling due to downsizing. NO TIME WASTERS PLEASE. The last time I "sold" this on Reverb, the person didn't turn up to collect.
