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.

Gibson EBO Bass. Serial 847902 dates it as 1969 (confirmed by the POT codes). All original hardware, electronics, etc. Looks like the headstock has been repaired at some point, judging by the finish flaw there. It may be a stress crack but its hard to tell for sure and there is no movement (the bass holds tune for months in the case). The finish on this bass shows the normal wear marks and checking, but no serious "dings". It is totally playable and sounds great. The original felt mute still works. Complete with Fingerrest, Bridge cover and the original Case. Really cool vintage bass tones only available from A Gibson EB0. A nice collector or a players bass. Why buy a new Gibson bass with far less character ????????
