1968 Gibson EB2D, Cherry

  • Sale
  • Regular price £2,750.00


1968 Gibson EB-2D, Cherry finish in good condition. It comes supplied with the original case. I don't believe the bar bridge is original to this bass. By 1968 it would have been fitted with a tune-o-matic  bridge with plastic saddles. One potentiometer is also changed.

All-round excellent bass with a wonderful tonal range. This bass has been fully set up in our workshop and is strung with a set of D'addario chrome flat-wound strings. Serial number:521029. Weight: 8lbs 11.5oz. Nut width: 38.2 mm. Depth at 1st fret: 20.8 mm. 

The body finish has a patch of wear just above the f-hole on the upper bout and a few small scuffs/dings but is clean overall, the binding is in good shape and the Cherry Red is still quite vibrant. The back of the neck has a couple of scuff and dings but playability is not affected. The headstock also has scuffs and dings, mainly around the edges. The frets are in good shape and the neck is straight with has no issues. The metalwork is clean and still shiny. The truss rod works as it should and everything structurally sound.

The EB2D has a powerful Gibson humbucking pickup at the neck position and mini-humbucker by the bridge with separate tone and volume controls + Baritone switch. 30 1/2 inch scale. The EB2D has a Maple body with a central tone block, Mahogany neck with a Rosewood fingerboard and 20 frets.

Condition Good  7.75/10
Case OHSC
Weight 9 lbs 3.5 oz
