Product Description

As part of their 120th Anniversary celebrations, Gibson USA has brilliantly re-conceived every corner of its lineup, and nowhere is this evolution more in evidence than with the EB Bass. This full-scale, 4-string bass follows a long line of great EB models, while bringing shape, look, sound, and versatility to the board -- all representing truly unbelievable value for a hand-made-in-America electric bass.

Learn more about the Gibson 2014 EB4 Electric Bass:


The EB Bass marries an extremely comfortable body shape to a glued-in, 34"-scale full-size neck and two awesome-sounding humbucking bass pickups for unprecedented power and fidelity. Whether you play in-the-pocket funk, warm and sultry jazz, or raging rock, the EB Bass is primed to take it on.

The foundation of the 2014 EB Bass from Gibson USA lies in a solid ash body and glued-in maple neck. Ash has long been respected for its open, resonant tone, and lends itself perfectly to a rich, versatile-voiced bass. Add Gibson's Alnico rod bass humbuckers with coil taps, a Babicz Full Contact bridge for perfect intonation and increased sustain.

Body and neck

The 2014 EB Bass 4-String is made from a solid swamp ash body with glued-in maple neck. Its asymmetrical double-cutaway body style is timeless, yet entirely original, and designed for forearm comfort and an ergonomic playing position whether seated or standing. The full-size, 34"-scale-length neck carries a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays and a 120th Anniversary banner inlay at the 12th fret.

Pickups and electronics

The firm sonic foundation of the EB Bass is amplified via two of Gibson's innovative Alnico rod humbucking bass pickups, which offer extreme clarity and string definition even when thundering through a cranked bass stack. Coil taps offer brighter, snappier tones, while a rim-mounted barrel jack provides a safe and secure place to plug in.

Hardware

A Babicz Full Contact bridge provides a rock-solid anchor at the body end for optimum resonance and sustain, complemented by efficient modern tuners. A multi-ply black pickguard and black truss-rod cover complete the package.

Case and coverage

The 2014 EB Bass 4-String comes protected in a vintage-brown Gibson hardshell case, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner's manual, and is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson's 24/7/365 Customer Service.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The best bass i have ever owned!!!"
Overall: I have owned tons of music equipment. Basses are my forte. I have been a musicman junky for years. I owned a stingray that was custom built and recently bought a musicman sub SLO. I was content with it. I felt like it would make a better back up though and wanted a musicman hh. ZZOUNDS and guitar center were not carrying the one that i wanted so i checked out the EB4. After doing tons of research i finally just broke and bought it. I got it the day after it was ordered and when i finally opened it up all i could say was WOW. I wasnt sure if i was going to like the neck...I sure did. Its nice and thin and feels really fast. The overall weight is incredibly light. i barely notice it at all, which is awesome because i really move around on stage. Although light it still feels really solid. The intonation was on point and all i needed to do out of the box was tune. The machine heads are smooth and precise. The bridge does allow for an amazing amount of sustain and i will be buying just the bridge for my other guitars and basses. The tones that i am able to get out of this bass are awesome. the ability to switch from double coil to single coil broadens the sound so much. I have yet to find anything about this bass i dont enjoy.
Style of Music: Rock, Punk, Metal, Hardcore, Blues, and R&B.
