And then there was mud.....

Postby dukeplaysbass » Sun Jan 25, 2009 1:56 am

Wanted to share a very cool local find. A very nice condition EB-2, prolly 1967. Almost zero finish checking. Nut is buggered a bit but working. Rest is original. Missing the cover and case (chipboard/bungee action right now)...

Anyway, a killer player. 8.75 lbs. No neck dive.

Got the action down to 3/32" at the 12th fret, but it pinned the mute slider in place. I assume this isn't too bad provided I don't use the slider, correct?

Anybody know where I can score a case or the correct cover?

Pix below to share.

That's a gorgeous EB-2! You might find a generic case that would fit from SKB but a Gibby case will probably set you back some cash, but that bass is worth it.

Is the cover plate you are looking for the same as on a EB3/Ripper/EB0?

I would ask to raid the local repairshop junk drawer.
You might get lucky!

I once got a Valentine from a lesbian. It made me wonder if she wanted to start something or just compare notes.

Nice indeed! I've seen the covers on eBay so you should not have too much trouble finding one.
