There is a Gibson eb-0 for sale at a shop 2 1/2 hours of driving away from me. They are asking around 1800$. At first i was surprised that a vintage bass was so low priced. I guess they are not that popular. I am used to playing both Jazz and P-bass. And i have long fingers. I play a lot of 60's music, but i don't use flat wounds. However since i don't own a genuine vintage bass, i am tempted to buy it. I know this is a bit hard to answer, but is the short scale bass not recommended fore some one with larger fingers and long arms. Is the sound of the eb-0 getting tiresome to listen to after a while (a bass friend of mine claims so). ? And is there no vintage hype when it comes to SG basses ?
