I'll start off with the Gibson EB-2, Hollow body bass, I have a 1966 model. I personally bought this bass with the help of my mother and my lawn cutting job in 1968 (I guess it sat around at Sherman & Clay SF. for two years). It sounds very, very, very BOOMY. It's the only bass I have that can blow 300 watt 15 inch Gauss speakers. All of the sound is low, somewhat undefined, no treble, but woody. Short scale 30-1/2", simple bridge, not very adjustable, but I'm glad I didn't sell it. It's nice when I'm in the right mood. You must own other basses and use the EB-2 when you want that type of sound. This is a bass you can feel.
