1979 USA Martin EB18 Bass
Over the years I’ve had over 800 basses pass through my hands but I’ve never had a Martin before.
Apparently the EB 18’s were made between 1979 and 1983, and around 700 models were produced.
This example is in very good condition – it goes have some areas of lacquer missing, and has picked up a few dings and dents along the way, but nothing bad or particularly noticeable, and no cracks or repairs. The frets are quite low but still have plenty of life in them.
Martin are better known for their high quality acoustics, so they really went to town when building these:
Bad Ass bridge
Di Marzio pick Up
Grover tuners
Set neck
Brass nut
Top quality woods and construction
This example is all original, soldering/wiring all untouched, and as it left the factory. Comes with the original hard case too.
It plays really well, has a low and fast action and a big sound from the Di Marzio. Cool, unusual, distinctive, vintage and unique.
A good collectors item but definitely ready to gig with as is…..
