I was watching this 1956 rock and roll movie the other day, and in it are lots of early rock and roll bands and R and B bands. The "treniers" was a vocal group, and behind them, the bassist had an odd looking bass. From a distance, and judging by the headstock, it might be an early gibson EB bass, but I am not sure...it looks like a cross between a Gibson EB-1 and a hofner beatle bass, but was made from brown stained mahogany... has anyone seen the movie, and know what it is? 1956 was the year, and I thought there were not many electric basses on the market yet to choose from. What other basses were around in '56?
