It seems incredible in hindsight but in the early 1960s, the Kalamazoo factory, home to both Epiphone and Gibson instruments, ceased production of the Les Paul guitar and in its place, created the “SG” design.

As it so often does, this change in guitar design also influenced bass design, too and with the Les Paul out of the picture, the SG took over.

The classic SG bass of that Kalamazoo era was the EB-3 and it quickly became one of the most sought after and distinctive basses of the time with some of the biggest players making rock history on their SG style EB3s…

β€’ John Entwistle – The Who
β€’ Trevor Bolder – David Bowie’s Spiders from Mars band
β€’ Jack Bruce – Cream
β€’ Glenn Cornick – Jethro Tull
β€’ Aussie Bob Daisley – Ozzy Osbourne’s Blizzard of Ozz and many other albums
β€’ Andy Fraser – Free
β€’ Jermaine Jackson – the Jackson 5
β€’ Jim Lea – Slade
β€’ Pete Quaife – The Kinks 1966-1969 replaced by John Dalton
