The EB-2 had been in the Gibson line from 1958 to early 1961 before being replaced by the EB-3. But in 1964 it was reintroduced, and this was it's first appearance in a Gibson catalogue since then. A number of changes had been instituted in mid 1965: a new bridge, mute fitted as standard and chrome plated handrest. What's more Cherry was available as a finish option from 1965, and is shown here in this, the first full-colour Gibson catalogue.
October 1966 US zone 1 prices were: EB2 $360 ($375 Cherry finish), Double Bass $810, Double Twelve $750, Double Mandolin $750.
