With a tip of the hat back to the years of the British invasion, Epiphone's Viola electric bass brings a dash of vintage class to your game. Crafted in that iconic "violin bass" body shape, the Viola's maple body is loaded a NYR Mini and NYt Mini humbucker to amplify your performance, and a maple neck with a pau ferro fingerboard features 22 frets with dot position inlays. This beauty of a bass will certainly bring a touch of variety to your collection, if you're looking for something a little different with a distinct home in the history of pop.
Epiphone's Take on a Classic
The Viola body shape of your Epiphone electric bass pays homage to an era when British pop was staking its claim in American culture during the mid-'60s. The laminated maple top boasts an attractive Vintage Sunburst finish that's easy on the eyes. Maple bodies push the high end just a bit for a welcoming bright resonance that's easily tamed via your master tone dial near both mini humbuckers.
NYR and NYT Mini Humbuckers
Capturing that iconic mid-'60s vintage tone are your set of NYR and NYT mini humbuckers. Both of these pickups have independent volume controls that allow you to find the perfect blend to suit your ears.
