Epiphone EB-0 CH

Electric Bass

If you love the sounds of the sixties, you won't be able to do without a short scale bass. With the EB0, Epiphone offers the old Gibson EB-0 bass. With a similar bass, Jack Bruce finally took the bass guitar out of its dull companion corner at Cream! An interesting variant especially for bassists with solo ambitions and / or short fingers.

Short scale bass
Martin773, 04.03.2015
Fantastic value for money. Excellent build quality though the bridge design (common to all EB/SG basses) is ridiculous. Bought this to defret as there are not many affordable short scale fretless guitars out there. Defret was easy (frets not glued in) and once I had shimmed the neck a little action was perfect for use with D'Addario Chromes. Tone options are limited but acceptable at this price point - and DiMarrzio do a drop-in replacement pup (the Model One) if you want to get away from that "mudbucker" Gibson sound. Added a "Mod-Bar" (available on eBay) for a few dollars to get over the problem of the string silk coming over the saddles once the intonation is set. Fits into the nicely priced Fender Urban short scale bass gigbag perfectly.

Cool vintage honky sound
HuubHuub, 12.07.2020
I fell in love with a 1968 Gibson EB2. But I really did not want to spend serious money. In the end I bought an Epiphone EB0, put on flatwounds and a mute (by ways of a piece of sponge) and I am really happy! I can get pretty close to the sound of an EB2. Instant sixties! The bass really plays pretty well. Amazing for the money. The sound is really distinct, so do not expect a bass for allround duties, it's middly and boomy and honky :) Which I happened to be looking for.

Nice retro bass guitar...
31.05.2015
Being a guitarist I prefer the short scale basses for playability so I grabbed one of these. Great looking guitar and seems to be improved from the EB0's made in the 90's/00's. Has a great finish that shows the grain of the wood and has a nice vintage vibe to it. Easy to play and set-up. Plays nicely with flatwound strings fitted and needed no truss rod adjustment afterwards. Great quality as usual from Epiphone.

The Epiphone EB-0; A Stupidly Simple Bass
Evsta101, 01.06.2018
The Epiphone EB-0 is a fantastic bass to play.
It's can seem like it is a one trick pony- the tubby, neck pick up sound -and you'd not be wrong for thinking that. But, with its very effective tone control, it has a few tonal tricks up its sleeve. This allows it to go from its pokey low-mid to low-end start point to a fairly thick low-end to sub glue-like thump.

I personally use this bass at home to record covers and original work with, it's a great bass to amp up or record through a DI and responds very well to effects (a ridiculous fuzz will still sound warm... but very hairy, picture hugging a Wookiee).
I also use this bass as a part of my worship team at church and it really aids the low-end spread we look for from our bassists.

My only issue is that it like it's stylistic guitar cousin (the Gibson SG), can be a bit headstock heavy and tip when you let go of the neck when wearing it.
However, a good strap that keeps the bass put is the best remedy for this.
