|EB-1 (Ver.1)||USA||1953-58||set||solid mahogany wood||Gibson||no||yes|
First violin shaped bass guitar worldwide. For historical details look here.
Single coil pickup, fixed
bridge, painted f-hole(s). Some late versions have an adjustable
bridge. Unfortunately many EB-1 have been modified with a second pickup
(or even a third one) and altered electronics. The EB-1 was delivered
with a stand, attachable instead of the lower belt pin to use the
instrument upright. Legal copy by Epiphone in the 90's.|
