I've actually had this for a while, but decided to get it refinished and make it my Allen Woody tribute bass.

It's a 1967 Gibson EB-3 bass. Bring on the thunder!

It's a good thing I'm sitting back a little; that way the drool went into my lap instead of the keyboard!
That is one sweet bass, Dave! If we ever meet in a jam situation again, I'm looking forward to hearing you play it...

Awesome bass. I needs to get one.

Speakin of...looking at this reminds me of my first Govt mule show in Fayetteville, AR in 95 (i think). Showed up early in this small club to see the roadies putting big nylon ratchet straps on all the speakers. I asked why (they were big and looked extremely stable) - and the guy says "these guys play LOUD"

Then about halfway through the first set, i think they were covering "Presence of the Lord" when Woody, playing a Gibson EB3 just like this one, BROKE A STRING...the "A" string in fact. What a monster!
Right then, i was SOLD on govt mule and allen woody. He was one of a kind!

Best I can tell, it selects various pickup combos and it's sort of like a preset tonal selection. I'm still figuring it out, truthfully, but the No. 1 position is the classic Woody tone. I have a 1971 slotted head EB-3 that will be my next project and it will have a 3 way toggle instead of the varitone.
