Gibson 1968 EB-2D bass with original case.
Introduced in 1958, the EB-2 was the bass guitar equivalent of the popular Gibson ES-335. The EB-2D, the two pickup model was introduced in 1966, and ceased production in 1972. A total of 2102 of the EB-2D were made making this a rare instrument.

The bass has not been re-stored or touched up, and is in its original condition. It has all original components and hardware and has not had any major breaks cracks or separations.
I’m rating this from good to very good condition only due to the belt buckle rash on the back.
- The headstock is solid but has some minor scrapes.
- The turners are in excellent condition and hold tune.
- The freeboard is in excellent condition without flaws or signs ow wear.
- The neck is straight and smooth but has one scrape or ding in the lower portion of the neck at the 9th fret that does not affect playability.
- The body has some normal checkering due to its age and has some minor scrapes around the side edge perimeter. •
- The back has a worn finish area caused by normal wear during play. The area finish is down to the wood and is smooth to the body. There are no indents or damage to the exposed wood.
The pictures show all the cosmetic conditions of the bass along with the video tour.
The bass is setup for excellent playability, plays like butter and has a great bass sound and range that can be dialed in.
Includes original hard shell case. (fair condition - see pics)
