Hi Ken,

Are the ribs also original to this bass?

Best wishes

Yes, 100%. All original. Probably one of the best 'real' Gagliano basses existing. A rare example..

Out of all the basses I have owned, and you know many of them personally, this might be the best of all. The Cateni I just sold was on par with this Gagliano but not the same international fame as far as origin goes.
