NBD: 1967 Gibson EB-2

Post by tylerforyou » Sat Mar 02, 2019 10:01 am

I've been a long time SG Bass player and have lusted after many an EB-2. Earlier this week my brother found this guy on Reverb and bought it. Now it's mine! It's solid, but rough. Everything has been stripped even the headstock. Nothing original left but the wood. The electronics are a basket case. The tuners work fine, but I wish they were properly sized. I have a Novak replacement pickup on the way along with a set of flats. We'll blow it apart (next week hopefully), clean it up, rewire it, and it should be ready to go.

So far I think it feels a lot like my SG, but I won't really get the feel until I get some flats on it and take it to practice.

Paint it red. Put chrome and covers on it.
These are some of the sexiest basses.
i love delay SO much ...that i procrastinate all the time.
