You won’t see many of these, and we’re certainly proud to have this all original 1966 Gibson EB-2 Special in Black! This was a custom order from Gibson to feature an ebony fretboard and ES-355 style binding, and we haven’t come across another like it! While the EB-2 was Gibson’s second electric bass, the follow up to the violin-shaped EB-1 from 1953, the EB-2 was indeed Gibson’s first semi-hollow electric bass. The EB-2 also found itself as a staple in many British Invasion bands throughout the 1960s. This particular bass is a stellar custom example, and it’s pretty clean too! The neck profile is a nice beefy C shape, and the bound fretboard and frets are in great shape! All electronics work perfectly, and everything on this bass is completely original.
It weighs in at 9 lbs 2 oz, and comes with original hardshell case.
