1963 Gibson EB3 bass guitar

The EB3 was first manufactured in 1961, and the model changed little by little throughout its years of manufacture. The 1961 model had a black plastic cover with surround on the neck pickup, which was painted silver. In 1962 this was replaced by a nickel cover - as can be seen below. Between 1962 and 1965 very little changed (check out a pelham blue 1965 EB3).
