If you’re looking for a great-playing, great-sounding, affordable, vintage Gibson short-scale Gibson bass, this is it. There’s a reason the EB-0 was Gibson’s top selling bass throughout the 1960s and 70s. The big-bottomed tone of this instrument is due to its mahogany body, set mahogany neck, short scale length (30½ inch), and neck-position pickup. Its sound is warm, woody, and vibey, just like it looks. Unlike so many vintage EB series basses, this one has a rock-solid neck joint, no body cracks, and no headstock repairs. No worries here—this bass will be pumping out big, round bass lines for decades to come. It has a wonderful-feeling neck, and is currently outfitted with a Dimarzio Model One humbucker wired to a push-pull pot. The original, fully functional pickup (a masterpiece of magnet and wire) is also included. The original finish was stripped at some point in the instrument’s history, but it’s now a beautiful shade of brown with an aged, mellow patina that looks and feels great. It has some fret wear from its years of action, but not enough to affect playability in any way. In the interest of accurately describing this wonderful instrument, we need to also mention that it’s missing a couple of screw from the control plate, and the potentiometers and tone cap are non-original. Comes with a non-original hardshell case that is sized for a full-scale bass. SOLD!
