: : : can anyone help me identify my bass.
: : : i have been told it is a prototype gibson eb3 but i am not sure to beleive it.
: : : the neck has been replaced at some time and it only has the neck pick up and one volume and one tone pot. it is in cherry red with a chrome bridge guard and a wooden finger rest with large flat tuning pegs, apparently all of the original pegs and stuff were transfered onto the new neck.
: : : if anyone can help me here i will be xtremely gratefull.
: : Suwydee,
: : To be honest, that sounds more like an EB-0 than an EB-3 to me; EB-3's *always* had the small bridge pickup.
: : Just curious, is the replacement neck a 30" scale?
: : Hope that helps!
: : -Bob
: It has got a 23 and aquarter inch neck with 20 frets.
: I thought that only the eb3s were the sg shape.
: Thanks for the reply, nice one
: Merry Christmas!!
sorry i forgot to mention it has the SG body shape, also it is marked SG101 behind either the neck or the pick up (it has been a while scince i last looked, i lent it to my dad a year or so ago).
Everything looks the same as an original EB-3 except no space for the lower pick up or the other tone and volume pot.
also is the replacement neck the right length or too short?
