Ampeg/Zorko Babay Bass
Now, before someone pops a cork over the fact that this is listed as an Ampeg and a Zorko let me give you some info. Zorko was the original manufacturer of the Baby Bass which Ampeg purchased in 1962. This bass has a serial number of 244 stamped at the top of the headstock. The fact that this is a Zorko and with the fact that Ampeg puchased the bass in 1962, this bass was likely manufactured in the late 50's early 60's! This has the original double bridge design and it plays excellent! As you may be able to tell from my auctions, I always try to be on the up and up with my customers. There are a few issues with this bass and the price reflects these though none of them are of any real consequence. One of the tuner knobs has been broken off and repaired with a not so good looking replacement. The second is a 1/4 inch or less space under the right side of the bridge, on the top. It looks as if the top got hot at some point and warped but it is hardly noticable unless someone points it out. Last of all. The headstock was broken and repaired by a qualified craftsman. Unless I told you about it, you would never know! I am so confident in the repair that I will warrantee the repair for 2 years!(just the repair, not the whole bass) You can see most of these issues in the pictures. I will pack this carefully but I may have to remove the neck to ship it. Buyer needs to let me know what they prefer.
This is a really cool bass and a collectors item! There are not alot of the Zorko's still around!
At my price you are getting a steal!!
