Comfortable and Fun to Play
An instrument you'll never stop playing. Gibson truly have created a masterpiece in terms of playing experience with the EB Bass. Every second you spend with one in your hands will be a joy.
A rounded maple neck provides magnificent comfort, as the smooth profile will fit perfectly into your fretting hand. Not only does this eliminate cramp and make playing the instrument more enjoyable, it also means you can slide across the entire neck with ease. Perfect for speedy playing styles and delivering those fast, exhilarating basslines.
An incredibly Powerful and Aggressive Tone
The Gibson EB's ability to deliver every note with a sharp, punchy quality gives you more power and aggression than most bass guitar around. Loaded with a set of Gibson EB humbuckers, these noise-cancelling pickups give you remarkable clarity. Your basslines will cut through any mix and sound exquisitely defined. The power that these pickups give you also make them well-suited for delivering exciting, intricate bass solos.
A Solid and Tone Enhancing Construction
A wide-reaching sonic palette. The ability to deliver notes with fantastic sound quality at both ends of the scale is essential in a good bass guitar. The Gibson EB's marvellous tonewood construction ensures this, making the instrument supremely versatile. A swamp ash body, maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard give you warmth and definition in every note you play, whatever the pitch.
A Rock Legend
Heritage. It might not be the first thing you're searching for when purchasing a bass. However, when you realise just how integral this instrument has been in the history of rock music, you'll be assured of its amazing abilities.
It was the go-to instrument of Trevor Bolder, the bassist for some of David Bowie's career-defining early work. He would play on ground-breaking albums such as Hunky Dory and The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, using the instrument to help Bowie forge his distinctive, world-conquering sound.
Bill Wyman of The Rolling Stones often used an EB as the band became the greatest rock 'n' rollers in the world. Slade used one as they helped create the glam rock genre. An EB was present in the work of punk pioneers The Stooges, and in hard rock with Alice Cooper. Jermaine Jackson of The Jackson 5 even used one in making some of Motown's greatest hits.
This truly is a bass guitar that has earned its status as a legend of the music industry. Lasting quality that never disappoints.
A Beautifully Modern Style
This music legend has been recreated with a modern style, featuring a swamp ash body to create its beautifully unique aesthetic. Its natural grain pattern remains visible underneath the luxurious whine red finish, providing an overall majestic feel. Finally, satin nitrocellulose lacquer applied to the bass gives it a glossy shimmer, making it stand out even more - especially under stage lights.
