    Just picked up a 1966 Gibson EBO.
    It's in very good shape, all original.
    Big, wide neck.
    Plays great.
    Hooked it up to my Mammoth bass fuzz.
    Cream heaven.
    Kind of fun playing a short scale bass?
    Anyone else play these basses?

    I had one of those back in 1973? or so.
    Neat axe if that's your bag, but I'm just a Fender-ish kinda guy, and short scale is not my thing. We did not get along, and I sold it to someone who was really glad to have it.
    If that's your bag, enjoy!

    Had one in the 70s.

    Really liked it.
    All low tone.
    Great for country music.
  4. Pics soon?
  5. I used one as my main bass for a few months in 1999 & 2000 and it was just too muddy for my taste. YMMV

    I saw the title and knew what bass it was about. Hated it as a regular bass, love it as a piccolo bass, though.

    One thing I've noticed, this bass sounds better if you don't try to clean it up.
    It's not a fender, which is my main bass.
    But does the dirty sound great.
    Also they were made for a fuzz.
    Records, BIG too.

    I had one in the mid 70's. It was my first professional bass. I would like to have it back for sentimental reasons.
