Ampeg Baby Bass Model Electric Bass (late 1960s), made in Linden NJ, serial # 013873, sunburst finish, fiberglass body, maple neck with ebony fingerboard, original black gig bag case.
Overall length is 60 in. (152.4 cm.), 18 in. (45.7 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 3.5 in. (8.9 cm.) deep. Scale length is in. (0 mm.).

This bass remains all original with some general wear and tear, most notably to the finish on the back of the neck which is worn to the wood in some places. The fiberglass top has sunk just slightly in the bridge area and there is some light shrinkage to the outer edges of the fiberglass covering, as is common with these. The bottom seam by the endpin has been resealed visibly.

There is an old repair to one side of the headstock (a grain split from the tuner shaft recess down, not a full headstock break) which is sealed up solidly but a bit sloppily. None of these are functional issues, but are noticeable. The bass plays and sounds as it should; a good-playing example of this famously eccentric Ampeg creation, complete with the worn original gig bag. Excellent - Condition.
