The Gibson EB-2 is a semi-hollow bass produced between '58 &
'72. It features one large Humbucker in the neck position capable
of creating a very "FAT TONE" with a Boomy Bite.
The short-scale neck makes for very fast action and the hollow
body gives it a deep resonant-tone. This bass dishes out so much
bottom end you could literally blow-out your speakers.
The EB-2 had an expanded run of popularity in the early days of
the post-Beatle era. Notable players of the Gibson EB-2 are Glenn
Cornick & Jeffrey Hammond-Hammond of Jethro Tull. This bass
was featured on the cover of Jethro Tull's 1972 LP, "Benefit".
