It seems incredible in hindsight but in the early 1960s, the Kalamazoo factory, home to both Epiphone and Gibson instruments, ceased production of the Les Paul guitar and in its place, created the 'SG' design. And as it so often does, changes in guitar design also influenced bass design, too. With the Les Paul (temporarily) out of the picture, the SG took over. And for a time during that golden era, the classic SG bass was the historic factory's sole electric bass offering.

But the EB-0 'SG' bass was by no means a cast-off. It quickly became one of the most attractive basses of the day and players like Bill Wyman of The Rolling Stones, Cream's Jack Bruce and The Who's John Entwistle made the 'EB' style bass a hitmaker. Now, Epiphone presents the EB-0, a stunning recreation of the vintage marvel that has the tone and feel of the original without the vintage price tag and vintage problems.
The EB-0 style is known for its unique SG-shaped all mahogany body with a 30 1/2 inch scale mahogany neck that is easy on bass players and guitar players who occasionally will take on bass in the studio or on stage. The bolt-on, SlimTaper™ neck has a rosewood fingerboard with classic dot inlays and a standard 1.50 inch nut. There are no surprises to the new EB-0. This is a faithful recreation of the historic bass that previously has been unavailable to most players.
The tone of the EB-0 hasn't changed either with Epiphone's famous Sidewinder humbucker pickup which perfectly compliments the light tonewood mahogany body. The Sidewinder has a wide range of tones and colours and easily holds its own on any stage.
Epiphone Famous Hardware
Like all Epiphone models, the EB-0 uses all nickel hardware, a full adjustable bridge, and full function volume and tone controls using full-size 500K Ohm potentiometers.

|Superb instrument, not worth buying second hand at these prices. The bass was even pretty near in tune.|
