1966 Gibson EB-0: Good Enough for Jack Bruce, The Jackson Five
So ’66 was a heck of a year for Gibson Bass guitars. They issued five distinct basses that would become relatively popular over the years. Though you won’t find a Gibson Ripper or Gibson Grabber in the 1966 catalog (they weren’t issued until 1973), the company’s full line of instruments included a Thunderbird model and two electric basses with SG-style bodies that would go on to become iconic in their own right—even to this day.
