1966 to 1972

Gibson introduced the EB-2D bass in 1966. It was like the existing EB-2 model but had a mini-humbucker in the bridge position (like the EB-3). The EB-2D had separate volume and tone controls and a 3-way pickup selector switch and a baritone switch. Originally offered in cherry red or sunburst finish, sparkling burgundy and walnut finishes were options from 1969 onwards. This model was discontinued in 1972 but the 2012 Gibson Midtown Standard bass is loosely based on the EB-2D.
