Gibson 1980 guitar and bass catalogue. Page 40. This was the final catalogue appearance of the Gibson G3 bass, although they were in production; albeit in very small numbers, until 1985. In fact the G3, outlasted the Ripper and Grabber, briefly; a handful of G3s were even made at the Nashville plant in 1985.
The US list price for the G3 in 1980 was $599 in Natural Satin finish, or $649 in Ebony, as illustrated here, or Antique Sunburst.
