The EB0 is a true design classic and was Gibsons most popular bass, making up almost a third of all solidbody bass sales.

The single pick-up EB0 was popular with the garage, blues, soul and church bands of the 1960s and 70s. Users included David Knights of Procol Harum, Felix Pappalardi of Mountain (who gave his to Jack Bruce after a concert, carving "to Jack, xxx Felix" into it) and Jermaine Jackson of the Jackson Five.

The short scale (20 frets on a 30.5 inch neck) and mahogany throughout made for a quick playing bass with a heavy sound from the Humbucker pick-up that was popular with the blues/rock movement of the late sixties, and which led to it being called the "Mudbucker". A true design classic it still looks as fresh as it did in 1961.

A vintage 1969 Gibson EBO bass in original trans red finish. This bass has no cracks, breaks in the wood or any other such problems, and is an amazing player with the hallmark very deep sounding Humbucking pickup. All parts are original with a minor crack from shrinkage to the pickguard. Add felt and the mute assembly will work as it should. One (filled) extra strap button hole on the back of the body is the only minor issue to this superb vintage bass. Moderate wear for this 39 year old bass, plenty of fret life and a beautiful straight/true neck make this bass superb to play and perfect for a collection. Comes complete with an Original Soft Shell Gase
