Another super-cool SG-shaped bass from Epiphone!
This is a lovely Black Chinese-built example of Epiphone’s EB-0 bass, modeled on the 60’s Gibson EB-0 short scale bass, the main differences being the pickup isn’t as muddy as the old 60s ones, and the neck is bolt-on, rather that set.
The condition is pretty outstanding, the only mark being a small lacquer crack on the top of the headstock. It’s set up with a lovely low action and plays great. This particular example has a very tight, clear tone for an EB-0, but with lots of grown when you dig in.
Back to the pickup – although the purists will hate me, I hoestly find these re-issue pickups WAAAYYYY more versatile that a true mudbucker, yet it’s still very easy to dial in the ‘mud’ if you so want to. Pick playing, and even slap actually do work well on these Epi’s.
I’ll film a video as soon as time allows
