    For sale - 1968 Gibson EB-2D

    Bass is in very good condition, and is all original. There are 2 issues I'd like to point out:

    a. One of the "witch hat" knobs is missing. The knob has been missing since I bought this bass 18 years ago. Reproduction knobs are available on ebay for very little money.

    b. The finish at the neck joint has flaked away. I've seen this often. I don't know if the neck joint had to be re-glued (as happened to my LP Sig bass), or if the finish at the glue joint wore away due to age. Whatever the reason, the neck is straight, stable, and solid as a rock.


    Everything works as it should. The truss rod functions perfectly. Both pickups work, as do the knobs, pickup selector switch, and the "baritone" button. There is some finish crazing throughout the bass, but nothing I would call extraordinary (see photos). The chrome is in fair to good shape (see photos). Included is the original hardshell case.

    If you'd like more photos, let me know.


    Price: $2,200 shipped.
