Description

A classic '60s bass that anyone can afford.

Epiphone presents the EB-0, a stunning recreation of the vintage marvel that has the tone and feel of the original without the vintage price tag and vintage problems. Based on the world renowned SG guitar body style, the Epiphone EB-0 takes great playability and simplicity to a new level. It's got a mahogany body, mahogany neck with granadillo fingerboard, and a shortened 30.5" scale, making this also a good choice for younger players. A Sidewinder pickup in the neck position provides a thick, ground rattling sound. A 3-point adjustable bridge and vintage-style tuners round out this bass' vibe. Case not included.

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. And as it so often does, changes in guitar design also influenced bass design, too. With the Les Paul (temporarily) out of the picture, the SG took over. And for a time during that golden era, the classic SG bass was the historic factory’s sole electric bass offering. But the EB-0 “SG” bass was by no means a cast-off. It quickly became one of the most attractive basses of the day and players like Bill Wyman of The Rolling Stones, Cream’s Jack Bruce and The Who’s John Entwistle made the "EB" style bass a hitmaker.

The Epiphone EB-0 comes with Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson 24/7/365 customer service.

Exceeds expectations...

Just happened by my local Sam Ash store with no intention of buying anything when I noticed the EB0 was on clearance. I had been considering an inexpensive solid body to back up my hollow body bass. The hollow body is not the most ideal for the snappy-poppy stuff. I was most surprised with the quality and sound of this intrument. The short scale neck fits my hands well and the weight is not bad for a solid body. I will be gigging with this bass very often. With the price, it would also be a great starter instrument for new players.

Perfect little bass.

I've been playing for a few years, not long enough to really be considered "experienced", but the EB0 is probably the best bass I own in this cost range. It's a solid bass, nice and comfortable, and the short scale is something I like, because my hands are smallish. The tone of the bass is comparable to a P-bass, with a nice chunky humbucker right at the top of the neck in a nice sweet spot and has a nice and warm sound that is great when Nylon Tapewounds or flatwounds are added to the bass, however, it can get a good bit of punch if you play with Stainless Steel Roundwounds as well. I typically play with Fender Tapewounds or Elixer Roundwounds, depending on what I'm expected to do. The deep sound is perfect for Rock and Metal. I play in a Shoegaze band, and it's got a good sound that compliments the rest of the band perfectly, but is still rather distinctive under the effects used by the guitars and of course, my own, when I play this, I know it's my EB0, instead of my J-Bass or my Ibanez 5-string soundgear even under Distortion and a Ring Modulator. I highly recommend this bass to anybody who needs a short scale bass that is solid, deep sounding and a pleasure to play in a live setting, it's a distinctive bass in looks, sound and is easy on the wallet, what's not to like?

I don't own it but, I played it once at my local music shop. It's huge humbucker gives a good solid tone sorta like a P pickup only deeper, I am really a pick player but, at the time I didn't have one on me so I used my fingers man it was deep. I thing this bass is great it has solid woods, great pickup and electronics and a really cool SG shape that metalhead punks like me lust after. Here's it's only flaw it's short scale (30" instead of 34").
