Epiphone EB-3 - Cherry

History of the Classic EB Bass

In the early 1960s the Kalamazoo factory, home to both Epiphone and Gibson instruments, made a decision to cease production of the Les Paul guitar. In lieu of the the LP, a radical new guitar design that also influenced the Kalamazoo factory's bass designs. With the Les Paul (temporarily) out of the picture, the SG took over. And for a time during that golden era of manufacturing, the classic SG bass was the historic factory’s only electric bass.

But the EB “SG” bass was by no means a throw away . It quickly became one of the most attractive and iconic basses in rock and players like Bill Wyman of The Rolling Stones, Cream’s Jack Bruce, and The Who’s John Entwistle made rock history on SG-style basses. Now, Epiphone presents the EB-3, a stunning recreation of the vintage marvel with all the tone and feel of the original without the vintage price tag and vintage problems.

Classic Styling

Part of the charm of the EB-3 bass comes from its long scale neck which boosts to the bass’ great sustain and tone. The SG-shaped mahogany body has a 34” scale mahogany neck that is an easy fit not only for bassists but guitar players who occasionally take on bass in the studio or on stage. The hand-set, SlimTaper neck has classic trapezoid inlays and a pretty standard 1.65” nut.

Vintage EB-Tone

The tone of the EB-3 hasn’t been altered either with Epiphone’s famous Sidewinder humbucker pickup in the neck position and our famous NYT mini-humbucker in the bridge position which perfectly compliments the light tonewood mahogany body. The EB-3 sports a cool retro style three-position pickup selector switch to shape the frequency response. To summ it all up , the EB-3 provides you a wide range of tones and colors that far exceeds almost any bass available to the working musician and easily holds its own on any stage

Pedal to the Metal Hardware

Like all Epiphone models, the EB-3 uses all nickel hardware, a full adjustable bridge, a full function volume, tone, and frequency response control using full-size 500K O potentiometers, and classic style premium machine heads.
