1978 Gibson G3 Grabber Bass in Factory Sunburst Finish.

Made in USA

The Gibson G3 bass, or Grabber 3 bass, was launched in 1975, as an upgraded Grabber, or G1.
The only difference between a Grabber and a G3 is the pickup configuration.
The G3 features 3 single coil pickups wired in humbucking configuration, whilst the Grabber, had one 'sliding' humbucker.

   Forward position activates the front and middle pickups in humbucking configuration.
   The back position activates the middle and back pickup in the same manner.
   The middle position activates all three pickups for what we have coined a "buck-and-a-half".

The bass is stucturally sound with no breaks or repairs. There is very light  fretwear and still has plenty of life left and it will be a long time before they'll need any work. Cosmetically  the bass has a light of nicks and chips.

The bass appears to be 100% original.....34 years old.....weighs 10.1 lbs.
