The Gibson EB-2 bass was the only electro acoustic bass in the line up at this time (joined by two solid body basses on page 70). The image here is of an older instrument - most likely around 1963 - and was previously used in the 1965/1966 Selmer catalog (though seemingly not earlier). The position of the crown logo on the headstock, and old style bridge are both early features. By 1968, the EB-2 had an intonatable tune-o-matic bridge with individual Delrin saddles, a more centered crown inlay, and a somewhat narrower pickup cover.
The ultimate in electro-acoustic guitar basses... one that offers the real artist everything. A super-responsive pick-up gives thrilling depth and richness, which at the touch of a two-way button, gives wide tonal range - sharp, throaty or guttural. The extra-slim, fast, low-action neck, in one-piece mahogany, is fitted with adjustable truss rod and is topped by heavy-duty machine heads. Only the finest quality woods are used. Finished in lovely rich brunette. The action is so smooth that even long sessions leave no feeling of left-hand strain - a bass in the best Gibson tradition.
