The Epiphone EB-3 SG Bass Guitar brings forth a modern reinvention of a classic guitar. Using an iconic SG shaped, mahogany body and long-scale mahogany neck, genuine Sidewinder neck pickup, and an NYT bridge pickup this bass is jam packed with sustain, tone, and super-cool versatility and vibe.
Following in the footsteps of the legendary SG, the EB-3 Bass Guitar uses the same body that made guitarists all over the world go weak at the knees in the late 1960’s. Built from mahogany the EB-3 provides rich, full tones in a lightweight, yet extremely resilient body.
A mahogany neck using the popular SlimTaper neck profile, gives an amazing, comfortable feel; a much needed quality in any bass guitar. The EB-3 uses a serene rosewood fingerboard sporting 22 frets with stylish trapezoid inlays, for smooth transitioning all across the 34 inch scale length.
Electronics & Hardware
Perfectly complimenting the light, yet rich tones of the mahogany body are the two Epiphone branded humbucking pickups. Equipped with a Sidewinder humbucker in the neck position and an NYT “mini-humbucker” in the bridge position, the EB-3 Bass Guitar offers fat, juicy tones, giving your bass grooves even more depth.
Also featuring a retro style three-position pickup selector, the EB-3 provides a multitude of ways to change your tonal variety and frequency response. Each pickup is controlled by two volume knobs and two tone knobs.
Other features include four classic style premium machine heads, a fully adjustable bridge and all-nickel hardware, contrasting against the lavish cherry finish.

Very nice bass

I have had the guitar for about a month now and I have to say this is very nice bass. First off the thing just looks great it really never gets old, that classic SG look. The Guitar stays in tune for days which in my opinion is not that much of a problem although some may find it annoying. It sounds beautiful on pretty much any amp up plug it into, the guitar has nice a nice deep tone to it and just all in all sounds utterly fantastic for the price. The action is just a dream, real easy to play and is ideal for anyone starting out. The humbucking pickups work a treat and being able to to control them individually is a nice feature. Although the guitar its self carries a great deal of weight to it but its not that big of a deal unless you are going to be running a marathon with it.
All in all this is a truly great bass guitar and i would recommend it to anyone as it looks, sounds and plays brilliantly. What else do you expect from Epiphone they very rarely disappoint.
