: : Hey Guys, here's the deal. I was visiting one of my relatives, and he showed me this bass he had been given by one of his buddies. It's a sweet little four string made by Gibson, and it has "The Grabber" engraved on the neck bolt cover on the head stock. The deal is that it has no electronics or pick guard on it. To me, It looks like it had some sort of P style pickup in it, but the cut out is pretty damn big. It also has a really big space for pots (It could hold five no problem), and it must have used a 1/4" jack on the front panel. He wants to put electronics back in it, so I said I'd look into what used to be there. He also told me that someone had told him that It might have had a sliding pickup of some sort, which is plausable by the size of the hole. The bridge is a design I've never seen before, and looks like it may have had a cover. If anyone knows anything about this bass, and could tell me, that'd be great.

Hey I got the same bass at a garage sale. 1977 Gibson Grabber. I am trying tio find original key and found this site. I am currently researching this bass. Mine has the slide pickup and was obviously played ALOT. Neck shows wear and tear. Check out vintage guitars.com
