Epiphone Viola Electric BassEpiphone introduces the Viola, one of the most recognized basses in the world. A popular bass for British Invasion bands who couldn't afford finer Gibson and Epiphone instruments, the Viola's unique construction and woody tone produce unique sound on stage and in the studio. Today, vintage models are difficult to find and are often plagued by vintage problems along with their vintage price tag. Epiphone engineers have solved those problems with their Viola Bass, which has the same classic sound with improved pickups, hardware, and electronics.

The eye catching 30.5 inch scale maple neck is hand set and glued in and includes a pau ferro fingerboard with a 12 inch radius, a 1.65 inch nut, and classic dot inlays. The headstock riffs on Epiphone's famous '60s Sloped Dovewing headstock.
