Here we have a beautiful all original 1963 EB-3 bass. The exact model Jack Bruce used in Cream with Eric Clapton.

- All original in used but great condition nonetheless with tons of vintage vibe and warmth.

- Short scale at 30.5” scale making it super easy and fun to play and a great, much easier transition to bass if you’re used to playing regular electric guitar than the standard 34” scale found on most basses.

- Plays fantastically and is currently set up with round wound strings. Flats would sound great on it too.

- A huge variety of tones available via the rotary switch and the two pickups, from thumping 60’s Motown in the neck to bright and clangy Motörhead style sounds with distortion added down at the bridge!

- This one has a factory stinger painted on the back of the headstock. I’ve had it looked at thoroughly and can confirm that it is not covering a repair.

- Plenty of life still in the frets.

- Non original hard shell case.

- Shipping (Insured) worldwide available. Please contact me and I will find you an accurate quote based on your destination.

- For sale privately also. Local pick up / meet up possible.
