Not unlike Fender's Bass VI, the EB-6 was an early 6-string bass tuned a full octave lower than a guitar. The EB-6 was originally produced as an ES-style semi-hollowbody. It was relaunched with an SG-style body in 1962. During its run, only 135 EB-6s were shipped by Gibson which makes these incredibly rare instruments.
