The EB-3 was released as a dual-pickup upgrade to the EB-0 in 1961.  The EB-3 had a metal cover over the bridge pickup, as well as a 4-position rotary tone switch. The EB-3 is considered more desirable to collectors than the single pickup EB-0. From late 1969 through 1971, Gibson used a slotted headstock design on this model.
