An All Original 1964 Gibson EB-0 Bass
1964 Gibson EB-0 Bass
This ultra thin (1 3/8 inches deep) SG-style bass guitar weighs just 7.30 lbs. Solid mahogany body with highly contoured edges. One-piece mahogany neck with a nice comfortable nut width of 1 11/16 inches, a short scale length of 30 1/2 inches and a wonderful thick profile. Unbound rosewood fretboard with 20 original medium-jumbo frets and inlaid pearl dot position markers. Headstock with inlaid pearl "Gibson" logo and pearl crown inlay. Two-layer (black on white) plastic bell-shaped truss-rod cover secured by two screws. The serial number impressed into the back of the headstock. Two-on-a-side Kluson right-angle tuners with large cloverleaf metal buttons. One large four-polepiece humbucking pickup with chrome-plated cover in the neck position with an output of 27.00k. Three-layer (black over white) plastic pickguard with five screws. Complete with the original ebony finger rest on the pickguard and the metal hand rest. Two controls (one volume, one tone) and jack socket, all on lower treble bout. Black plastic bell-shaped knobs with metal tops. Combined single-saddle bar bridge/tailpiece. The pots are dated "137 6421" (CTS May 1964). All parts with the exception of the pickup cover are nickel-plated. This guitar is in excellent plus (8.75) condition with very little wear to the frets or the fretboard. There is an area of belt-buckle wear on the back of the body with an area of surface loss measuring approximately 2 x 1 1/2 inches. Some light finish checking and a few small surface marks on the edges of the body. The original pickguard has two small chips (top to screws) and a small crack on the lowest screwhole. The original cherry red finish is bright and fresh and totally unfaded. Housed in a seventies Gibson five-latch, shaped black hardshell case with red plush lining (9.00). (#1963)
