1964 Gibson EB3 custom, Cherry finish with Gold hardware. Excellent condition.

Solid mahogany body, one-piece mahogany neck, and unbound rosewood fretboard with 20 frets and inlaid pearl dot position markers. One large metal-cover four-polepiece humbucking pickup in the neck position and one smaller metal-cover four-polepiece mini-humbucker pickup with black plastic surround in the bridge position. All hardware gold-plated. This guitar is in exceptionally fine (9.00) condition, with a minimal amount of wear. Housed in a modern black hardshell case.

This is one of 277 EB-3s made in 1964, out of a total of 2,898 between 1961 and 1968 (in 1969, the model was changed completely). This custom guitar with gold parts must have been a special factory order -- and is the only one we have seen or heard of. According to the Gibson factory records this guitar was shipped on June 20th, 1964.
