Gibson Bass Guitars - A brief history and popular models

Gibson has never really enjoyed the same success in Bass guitars as Fender none the less Gibson basses have a loyal following. The EB1 first appeared in 1956. It looked more like a violin than a modern bass and appeared very similar to the classic hofner bass models popular in the 60's. The EB2, a semi-solid body bass was introduced in 1958 and featured rounded Les Paul like contours. This was probably due to influence of the ES335 which was introduced at the same timeframe. Gibson's introduced the EB0 in 1959. The EB3 appeared in 1961 and was a deluxe version of the EB0 with an extra bridge pickup which gave it a much brighter sound.
