Oh we all love the sixties! The Kalamazoo EB Bass is the inexpensive version of the Gibson EB Bass we hear on so many songs from that period.
This one has been played and modified through the years. It has a new pick guard, new tuners and a new nitro finish.
It’s still got it where it counts though with the original pots and Gibson sidewinder pick up. It’s a very light instrument with a smallish guitar-like neck (super easy to play) but the action is a little high and there is buzz on the on “G” string…BUT…when you plug it in… Wow…this Kalamazoo Bass sounds huge, like some monster bass, hard to believe when you’re holding it. There is one more thing to say about the construction for folks looking at these old Kalamazoo guitars and basses. They aren’t wood, well they’re composite bits of wood all glued and compressed together, so don’t think that you can sand one down and come up with beautiful wood grain.
