1968 Gibson EB-2D, Cherry

  • Sale
  • Regular price £2,750.00


1968 Gibson EB-2D, Cherry finish in excellent condition. All original including the case and string mute mechanism. (The mute felt was missing so I've added some new sponge). All round excellent bass with a wonderful tonal range. This bass has been fully set up in our workshop with a fresh set or D'Addario flat-wound strings. Serial number:899823. Weight:9lbs 5oz. Nut width: 38.75 mm. Depth at 1st fret: 20.75 mm. We removed a couple of pots to check their dates but the date stamps were covered in solder. Given that the solder is untouched we are sure they are original to the bass. 

The body finish is extremely clean with very few signs of wear. The Cherry Red is still very vibrant and rich in colour. The headstock has a few small dings but nothing major. There is what appears to be a scratch running along the back of the neck about 6" long. Rather than a scratch, I think this is more likely to be very slight movement over many years along one of the seams causing the lacquer to crack. The binding is fully intact and in great shape as are the frets. The neck is straight and has no issues. The metalwork is clean and still shiny.

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.
