    Hi Guys.. Another bass that is not being played =/
    I have here a 1968 EB2 in great condition.
    I was told it was a 68 when I bought it.. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
    Case its in fair condition.. 2 broken latches.I don't know if it's original..
    Neck straight and no dead spots..
    Electronics work fine and bass plays good... Just not my cup of tea..
    Body has a few minor nicks and finish checking (look at pics)
    Please let me know if you have more questions
    SOLD!!!

    Pm sent, also wondering if you could post a pic of the back of the headstock/neck to see if it's been cracked/repaired

    Badass bass! If I had the scratch, I'd grab this one. I forget, what scale are these beauties? -JC

    I have a '65 Epi Rivoli which is 30.5" scale and thought the main difference was that the Gibbys were 34"?

    Nope, their new hollowbodied model is 34 but the EB-2 is a shortscale.

    Thanks from me too Eduardo! I 've been mistakenly thinking that EB -2s were long scale . I bought that '65 Rivoli that Instagator restored and it's admittedly less versatile than many, it does what it does like no other.

    This is a very nice EB-2 bump.

    Bump for a fellow EB-2er! They have so much mojo. Anyone who thinks they're one trick ponies should check out Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (he plays a Rivoli, but they're practically the same model).

    While the US was a wash in Fenders, the British Invasion types seemed to prefer these hollow bodied Gibsons and Epiphones.

    Check out some Youtube vids.
