The EB-3- Gibson's fourth attempt at an electric bass- turned out to be the charm. This was the big-brother to the single pickup EB-0. It features a similar short scale of 30½" and a solid mahogany body with a one piece neck. This design evolved, going to a three piece neck with split headstock and finally a three piece maple neck, but still with a one piece mahogany body. The EB-3 had an extra pickup at the bridge, affording it more round tonal possibilities than the one-sound EB-0, and consequently this bass found favor with many late sixties and early seventies musicians.
