Since Gibson announces a tribute to the Les Paul Junior Double Cut bass at the NAMM 2019 , I thought it would be appropriate to show you guys the original from 1958 😉

The EB-0 was an all mahogany short scale bass with a slab body and the dreaded banjo tuners at the headstock.

It goes without saying that the original EB-0 is featured in The Gibson Bass Book, which is still readily available at www.thegibsonbassbook.com and/or www.elderly.com and/or www.bol.com

Gibson will announce a new bass at the NAMM 2019.
Les Paul Junior Tribute Double Cut Bass.
Available in Worn Cherry, Worn Brown, Worn Ebony and Blue Stain.

Hopefully it is closer to the old EB-0 than the halfhearted attempt that was released in 2011 under the name EB-11...

Is this a Gibson Bass?
Yes! You're looking at a 1987 WCB prototype. Designer Wayne Charvel was court supplier for (big hair) metal bands in the 80s. This prototype once belonged to the bass player of Kingdom Come.
Underneath the diamond shaped pickup cover there is a split coil pickup placed under an angle.
This bass is featured on page 90 of the Gibson Bass Book.

Here's an Epiphone Ripper from 2006. Epiphone did release a Ripper once before in 1998. The first one had a single (fixed) humbucker. This 2006 version has a PJ combination, which is perhaps a bit of a sacrilegious move for (Gibson) Ripper devouts...

This Epiphone bass can be found on page 171 of The Gibson Bass Book.
