Hi Sammi

From what you have written and looking at the pics, it is a Japanese-made copy of a Gibson EB0 bass and (unfortunately) not a real USA-made Gibson. 

Because it has Gibson on the headstock it might be considered counterfeit if you were to sell it on ebay, though I suppose you could mask the logo off and plead ignorance.

Value is really whatever someone will pay for it - hard to say - £100-ish? Not much more.  If it plays ok someone will like it.

Best wishes.

Unfortunate that its a fake and without much value. It might still be a fine playing & sounding bass though. If you sell it, make it clear that its not a Gibson.

Any guitar with Gibson on the head stock, and stamped that reads made any thing but Made In USA, is not authentic.

So what you have there is a copy of what looks to be an EB0 Bass

It's most likely  a bolt on neck, as most of those copies did.  (but flip it over and take a pic if you're so inclined)

It's monetary value is minimal.
