The Famous Jack Bruce Bass for an Amazing Price!

Psst...the Epiphone EB-3 electric bass is an excellent steal for the beginning bassist! This baby features Sidewinder neck and NYT Bass Mini bridge humbuckers housed in a dark resounding mahogany SG-style body, a sturdy mahogany set neck in a comfy SG shape, a smooth rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets and sleek trapezoid inlays, dual sets of volume and tone controls, a three-position transformer to adjust frequency response, a secure stoptail bridge, and shiny chrome hardware. Break into the electric bass game without breaking your wallet -- pick up this classic SG-shaped axe.

Sweet SG Mahogany Body

The SG figure is perhaps one of the most recognized body shapes in rock history. Mahogany makes a great tonewood for electric basses because the lower and middle frequencies of each of your notes are pushed a little bit more. A rich and deep tone is the consistent result when you plug this baby in and fire it up.

Comfy SG Mahogany Neck

Your Epiphone EB-3 features a 34" scale SG-shaped mahogany neck that's made to fit well into your hand. This mahogany neck set into a mahogany body allows for a pleasant and almost seamless transfer of sound. Once your hand grips the smooth 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, you won't be able to get enough of how easily and comfortably this neck plays.

Unique Dual Pickup Set: Sidewinder Neck and NYT Bass Mini Bridge Humbuckers

To capturing your notes and projecting them into an earth-shaking signal, Epiphone outfitted this EB-3 with a Sidewinder humbucker in the neck slot, and NYT Bass Mini humbucker in the bridge. Your Sidewinder delivers a thick and full tone rich with mids and lows, and you NYT Bass Mini brings in a little extra high-end bite. This unusual pickup paring brings an atypical yet appealing tone to your EB-3.

Solid Set of Tone Controls

The control complement on this baby is pretty sweet. Along with dual tone and dual volume controls, your Epiphone EB-3 also houses a three-setting transformer switch to adjust the output frequency response of your notes. Play around with each setting to see which tone best suites your particular style and tone. With the Epiphone EB-3, you get serious tonal range in a seriously affordable instrument!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "This Bass Rocks and anything else you want it to do!"
Sound: Rich and Deep bottom tones in the mid tone range it really cuts. No lose of head room over the guitars. Feature: Two volumne comtrols and two tone controls and with the humbuckers you could get any blend you want. Ease of Use: It easy to dial in just the right tone for any style of song your playing. Quality: Very well build solid. it is a little top heavy but with a 3" strap it stays put. Value: $300.00 for a bass that should retail for around $700.00 Great Value!!! Manufacturer Support: Had to get saddles for my EB-0 that I got at a second hand store. I e-mail Epiphone and they got back to my with a dealer in my area the next day. Very fast reply. The Wow Factor: I have both the black and the red finish. And I get Wow's on both of them. the Black look really good with the chrome hardware for some reason it draws in the girls. (???) Overall: I've been playing Bass for 41 years and have had alot of brands. I am so happy with the Epiphone EB-3 and EB-0 that this will be the last basses I will every buy. Thanks you Epiphone wish I had played you soomer!!!
