The Gibson 2017 EB Bass 5 String T Bass Guitar affords total mastery over your low-end tone, giving you the ability to shape and carve out your sound on an instrument that is a true joy to wield. Whatever style of music you play, the EB is a tonally versatile wonder that is perfect for everyone from amateurs to professionals. Whether you're recording tracks in the studio or hitting the stage, the EB Bass 5 String T Bass allows you to get the job done in style.
Sophisticated EB profile
The body has been crafted using Swamp ash, which is a tonewood that is highly regarded by luthiers thanks to its richness of tone and girthy midrange energy. Though it produces an enviably powerful sound, the wood is surprisingly light in weight, lending itself sweetly to a comfortable playing feel. The body has been shaped in accordance with a cool ergonomic design, with contoured edges and deep double-cutaways to guarantee unimpeded access to the upper frets.
Robust rounded neck
With the addition of the 5th string, Gibson have gone to great lengths to ensure the playability and feel of the neck is as accessible as that of its 4 string counterpart. With this in mind, the neck is crafted using maple, which is shaped to a rounded profile to offer a substantial feel in the hand whilst retaining a manageable comfortability. Maple offers a bright counterpoint to the swamp ash to offer articulation across each and every note.
Married to the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 24 frets that are adorned with dot position inlays to guide your way in style. The generous 34-inch scale length of the neck is paired with a 12-inch fingerboard radius, laying the foundation for an accommodating playing surface for your fingers to explore.
EB Rhythm and Lead Humbuckers
With a tone wood combo as potent as this, some equally powerful pickups are in order. Two Alnico V magnet-powered humbuckers are equipped, which deliver a high-gain output with fat tone. Each of these has its own volume control, so that tones can be blended from each pickup, whilst a master tone pot allows you to embellish output from low to high frequencies.
Fitted to the body is a Babicz full-contact bridge, which creates a seamless connection between the strings and body to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to Grover tuners which provide stability throughout the most energetic of performances with a durable 20:01 tuning ratio. The newly appointed self-lubricating TekToid nut also works tirelessly to upheld sustain and pitch accuracy.

Along with the gig bag, each model is supplied with a Gibson USA guitar strap, polishing cloth, truss rod wench, and 2.5mm adjustment wrench to help you keep your EB Bass in pristine condition.
