Gibson EB0 / EB3 bass 69

1969 Gibson EB0 / EB3 bass

Mahogany vintage Gibson SG bass. Classic rock bass

This bass has plenty of player wear, with a graze on the back and scuffing at the edges on the lower bout. It’s had a professional neck reset; you can see where the neck / body join was retouched in the process.

Amazing Gibson bass growl in the neck position and good funk sound back at the bridge. Original tuners and hard flight case (with one broken latch). Good value Gibson bass.

It’s very possible that this bass started life as an EB-0 then had the bridge pickup and pickup selector switch added at a later date.

Price: £1,499.00

    Thank you very much for the prompt shipping. The guitar arrived just the next day, much faster than I expected and well packed and without any damages. The overall condition is super great for the age and it seems to be all original....case in good condition included, so it is a fair deal for the money! Since the first day, I loved the tone, playability and sound of this guitar, it is in very good condition and very convenient to play! I love the tone! So this guitar and me became friends and I am very happy with it.
