A profile of the early Les Paul Junior-style solidbody electric bass
This was the first version of the EB-0 and modelled on the Les Paul Junior guitar. When the guitar became the SG the EB-0 was given the same facelift.
With the single humbucking placed against the neck this had a big fat sound further enhanced by the significant mass of the slab mahogany body. Its weight was certainly one of its downfalls.
