: Do any players really know exactly what each knob, and 4/way switch does? Can anyone describe what number 1 does, and so on 2,3,4 on the big 4/way switch? And the four knobs. What do they do other than volume and tone? Are they also some kind of phase sweep? Which one is for which pick-up? My first bass was an EBO in 1966.Then I switched to fender. So now that I have this 1972 longscale EB3, that was never played or taken out of it's case in 28 years, and is as mint as mint gets, I have no idea what to do with all the swiches and knobs. PLEASE HELP ! Hey Rumblethump, if you can answer all my questions, I'll be your best friend.Steve
if it serves at all, recently I wrote a review of an Epiphone EB3 for 44Hz.com. Not a Gibson EB3, but I think the electronics layout it's just about the same. If you have some Spanish chops, you can check it out yourself; if you don't, just scream and I'll tell you about its electronics in English here.
Anyway, as far as I know, the circuitry offers no phase sweep and the "chicken head" switch (it's a 3 way in the Epiphone) offers just pickup combinations.
Hope it helped. Buena suerte and keep that bass up front in the mix,
