This 1959 EB2 semi-hollowbody bass is one of the most sought after, rare and elegant of all Gibsons creations.
 
This EB2 has "banjo tuners" and a black bakelite Humbucker. The "baritone" switch, first fitted in 1959, creates a superb bass tone.

This is an absolutely wonderful original 1959 Gibson EB-2 vintage bass guitar, s/n A 32851, fon no. S 7859 18. The serial no points to early 1960, the fon 1959. This bass has ALL 1959 features. It is 100% original and in beautiful condition with no issues whatsoever. No breaks, repairs or any excuses. The original neck set is perfect, the beefy '59 profile neck is laser straight with its like new original frets (had flatwounds most, if not all of its life), on a perfect Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. The original sunburst finish is gorgeous, with the usual checking and some tiny dings here and there (see photos). The bass sounds and plays superb-with the BAritone switch (a new inovation in 1959) providing that wonderful deep Gibson sound. This bass comes with its original 'California-girl' brown hard case with plush pink lining (a big bonus!), along with an original Gibson Mona Steel bass string box, case key, and quite possibly its original strap!
