The Gibson EB-2 Bass was invented in 1959 & made famous by many players. This example is oh-so rare & very special ordered by its 1st owner & is 1 of the coolest special ordered EB-2’s from 1965. Its beautiful slightly faded original “Argentine Gray” custom color finish is what this is all about & its so frickin rare. Its 1 of only 2 of this color known to exist. Its 1 piece mahogany neck feel delicious. No volute nor Made in the USA stamp. She’s got a perfect orange label too. Its black & white laminated pickgard show very well. Its powerful pickup along w/its vari-tone flip switch (owner replaced its original push-button switch) make really fabulous tones on steroids. Cool as she is, her truss rod is engraved “Custom” for obvious reasons. She has a pair of chrome topped gold knobs to finish her off nice. Its chrome hardware is clean. It’s still sporting its original open back tuners. This is a great Bass for that guy that wants to enjoy it for its next 58 years ! She’s 100% original & truly excellent overall & comes in its original Black/Yellow lined hard case.
