    The EB-1 Electric Bass, was first introduced in 1953 as a response to the successful Fender Precision Bass. The body design was based on a double bass with f-holes painted on. As a concession to upright bass players, the EB-1 had a telescopic end pin spike that allowed bassists to play the EB-1 in the upright position. It was made until 1958 when it was replaced first by the EB-2 and then by the EB-0. The Electric Bass was renamed the "EB-1" in 1958 (from 1953 to 1958 it was simply the Gibson Electric Bass), in order to separate it from the newly introduced EB-2.

    The EB-1's single pickup was mounted at the end of the neck giving the EB-1 a deeper tone than the Fender Precision. Its electronics were was designed to emulate the upright bass tone that most bass players of the period were familiar with. Despite not being a big commercial success in the 1950s, the EB-1 is sought after today by collectors as the first Gibson Solid body bass - some sell for over $6000!

    Here is our tribute the very cool EB-1! We've made a few subtle changes but trying to stay true to the original vibe.
