EB3

Recommended Posts

My second bass, this EB3 was meant to make me sound like Jack Bruce, hard to find in the day but it finally appeared in a weekly instruments for sale column...From the days of black n white from a Box Brownie camera....

Rocking bass, but looks a bit lonely.

Yes it does look like that and it was. The days of one bass ownership only, struggling on apprentice wages to pay HP on a an amp head and mates building speaker cabs for me. Those were the days my friends, we thought they'd never end.

My much loved mojo machine. Not much of the original finish left on it.

Mine was sold on to a shop in Shepherds Bush, London back in the 70s, looks like this colour too.I think I tried a Ricky but then went for a Gibson Les Paul Recording that I had a long scale neck fitted perfectly by Richard Knight guitars down Weybridge, Surrey way. That bass has a bass clef at the 12th fret......(anyone got it now?)....So, when and where did you get this one?

Approximately six years ago from a guy in manchester. One of the bridge anchor pins had shifted so i had that repaired and the electrics serviced plus fret level and polish. I considered going the whole hog and having the bass refinished but it has so much character i couldnt bring myself to do it.
