ES 150 bass model


Recommended Posts

I have a friend who has a 1953 era Gibson Bass that has an ES 150 guitar body, but it is set up as a bass. It is an Archtop with a P90 type pickup with a very skinny neck. I can find no information. In one of the F holes it looks like the model number is EIB 150, and the other side has a serial number 98xx 31 on the other side. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Interesting.  We're going to need to see some photos.

The serial number isn't making any sense to me.  Is it a six-digit number, or four digits followed by a space and then two digits?  Either way, it's not clear to me that it would make sense for an instrument of that general age.   Are you pretty certain about what you're seeing with the serial (or factory order) number?  So, photos of the instrument is very important, and if you can manage a photo of the model and serial numbers, that would be great too.  Thanks.
