This is a severely modded 1970's Gibson EB-3. Someone moved the rotary switch and plugged a couple controls, not to mention adding a middle P pickup. This freak show has random cavities routed/filled, an active preamp installed, stock controls either plugged/rerouted/removed and a 3rd P pickup installed. The customer and I decided to remove the preamp and try to make sense of what's left.
I try to keep an open mind with these older modifications as there was not the plethora of information floating around like nowadays. But what the fuck is going on here? Maybe it was used in some historic recording session? Or maybe someone just had a bunch of ideas they wanted to try out. I need to know why! #eb3mystery
