Gibson / EB-2 / 1968 / Bass For Sale
Very beautiful and in exceptionally fine conditions. The only trace of wear is the sign of the right hand next to the pickup cover. The original owner wrote his name and birth date inside of the f-hole, with the date of may '69 when probably he purchased the bass unfortunately to do so he removed the orange oval label, but the serial number is clearly readable on the headstock and it classifies the instrument as a 1968. A very unusual feature for the times is the exceptionally flamed maple top! Really attractive and rare! Two controls, one humbucker pickup with metal cover, 'baritone switch' to cut-off some frequencies. Bridge with typical-for-the-period nylon saddles, complete with its chrome cover. Original laminated pickguard, and all parts are correct and original. A beautiful instrument with a fantastic look, in great shape and with an excellent action and a great sound. The non-original case is very well made and perfectly fitting, since it was professioanlly custom-built for this particular instrument. More pictures on our website www.realvintage.it.
