The Gibson 2017 EB Bass 4 String T Bass Guitar takes the class EB model and introduces it to some modern appointments that makes it perfect for today's bassists. Whatever style of music you're tackling, the 2017 EB Bass is a mighty performance partner for both amateur and professional players alike.
Sophisticated EB profile
Swamp ash is the tonewood of choice, and is perfect as the driving power behind the EB Bass. Highly regarded thanks to its rich warmth and depth of tone, Swamp Ash also boasts a relatively lightweight feel along with its big-hearted tone. The body is treated to a deep double-cutaway profile, making easy to reach the upper frets in comfort. The body has a contoured edge, which creates a comfortable rest for the picking arm, and allows the body to sit snugly against your body during performances.
Robust rounded neck
The neck is crafted using maple, which is shaped to a rounded profile to offer a substantial feel in the hand. 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.
The Gibson 2017 EB Bass 4 String T Bass Guitar is supplied with a Gibson EVF gig bag to protect your pride and joy at home and on the move. 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.
