What is this Gibson bass that I'm considering buying?

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure it's an early 70s EB-3L judging by the pickup placement, but the electronics are weird to say the least. It has 2 switches and 1V1T on a backplate type cover on the front of the bass, but there's no rear route at all. It has a maple neck and a volute, which also makes me think that it's an early 70s.

‘Don’t know anything about their electrics, but I do like their slothead design : https://reverb.com/item/17438060-gibson-eb-3l-c-1969?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIpMSW4Ias4AIVCh-GCh0zOAbxEAQYAiABEgL9X_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds&pla=1... and wonder if that might get some interest from the Martin/Taylor camp if offered by big G on a slope shoulder acoustic six string guitar.

I know squat about electric basses. But what you are describing with no back plate, switches and T/V controls sounds a bit like a 1970s SB-450. You might do better posting your question with some photos in a forum dealing with Gibson electrics or just basses.

Guys, I think this is just spam. Look at "Heeras" last post. They quoted their own first post - which is weird in the first place - but look closely and you'll see they have inserted two spam links in the quote that were not in the original post.

 

The post about an electric bass should have been a tip-off here in an acoustic guitar forum. Pay attention... or you will soon be getting more e-mail like the ones from your recent "girlfriend" [biggrin]
