Cool and classic basses: Gibson EB-0

NEWS Published on 09 November 2011

Gibson
  • ORIGINALLY PRODUCED: 1959-61
  • ORIGIN: USA
  • TYPE: Solid slab body, twin cutaway, 4-string
  • COMMENTS: This was the first version of the EB-0 and modelled on the Les Paul Junior guitar. When the guitar became the SG the EB-0 was given the same facelift. With the single humbucking placed against the neck this had a big fat sound further enhanced by the significant mass of the slab mahogany body. Its weight was certainly one of its downfalls.
