The EB2 and EB2D semi-hollowbody basses are the most elegant of all Gibsons creations.
 
The EB2 has one pickup at the neck, the EB2D has a second by the bridge to create a wider tonal range. The "baritone" switch creates a superb bass tone, which explains why this bass features heavily in 1960s Rock and in Reggae.

The tone is full and rich. The neck is medium taper profile getting even thicker at the 12th fret. The guitar plays beautifully, with the deep tone produced by the barritone switch-a reason these basses were often used for Reggae as well as Rock music by players such as Chas Chandler of the Animals.
