Bass Guitar by Bob Gorny Custom Guitar Works

The bass offered here is a one-piece wooden guitar designed by craftsman Bob Gorny. The components include Grover Tuning Keys and Hi-A (Bartolini) pickups.  It offers four volume/tone knobs and five toggle switches.

Note: The guitar works–I plugged it into an amp and played it–but didn’t figure out how to use all the controls. The guitar shows plenty of wear as it’s a vintage instrument from the Bob Gorny Custom Guitar Works (CGW), a shop that made guitars for the likes of Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy.  There is a crack in the neck that has been sealed. It is 40 years old with a handwritten mark indicating the number and date of manufacture: CGW-25, 9/78.
Bob Gorny guitars are legendary instruments, no longer made since his passing in 2014.
Price: $2000.
