The Gibson 2019 EB Bass 4 String Bass Guitar offers classic tones in a thoroughly modern machine. Boasting exceptional appointments throughout an expertly engineered instrument, the EB Bass is perfect for those who want a tour-ready bass that doesn't cost the earth. Each model is supplied with a Gibson gig bag and Accessory Kit to get you up and running as soon as yours arrives.
Stylish EB body
The EB Bass is built using swamp ash, a solid-feeling yet lightweight tonewood that is tonally rich and doesn't skimp when it comes to mid to low-end power. Boasting elegant curves in all the right places, the EB offers a delightful figure-hugging feel that makes it a joy to perform with. The slender body depth yields to shallow bevelled edges to create a comfortable resting position for your picking arm. Whether you prefer to wear your bass high or swing it low, pluck with your fingers or a pick, pop, slap or tap, the deep double-cutaway profile allows you to get around with ease.
Robust rounded neck
Joined to the body is a sleek maple neck, which is shaped to the substantial yet manageable rounded profile that sits sweetly in the hand. The generous 34-inch scale length gives the strings enough room to resonate fully whilst promoting a consistent feel. Married to the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 24 frets that are decorated with dot position inlays to guide your way. The 12-inch fingerboard radius responds well to technique such as string bends and lightning fast legato.
EB Rhythm and Lead Humbuckers
The EB Bass 4 string is home to a pair of EB Bass Alnico V powered pickups, which translate the bountiful energy of the tonewoods perfectly. Each pickup has an independent volume control with push/pull (coil tap) capability, which allows you to reduce the output for a more subtle response. A master tone control allows you to focus the output to suit the style of music that you're performing. From deeply saturated low-end energy to tight high-end articulation, everything that you need to master your tonal output is at your fingertips.
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 Bass tuners, which provide stability throughout the most energetic of performances with a durable 20:01 tuning ratio. The self-lubricating TekToid nut works tirelessly to upheld sustain and pitch accuracy.
