You'll love the feel of the Epiphone EB-0 four-string bass guitar, with its shorter-scale 30.5" mahogany neck that's perfect for fast players, beginners, and guitarists that only occasionally play bass. And not only does the shorter scale make the EB-0 bass effortless to play, it packs your harmonics closer together for a vibrant and lively tonality. It's a great balance to the warm, solid low end with rich sustain you get from the mahogany body.

The EB-0 bass sports a mahogany body for exceptional sustain and a powerful, bassy voice. And with the humbucking pickup in the neck position, you'll get a wide variety of warm, mellow tones from the EB-0 bass. But don't think that the EB-0 bass stays back in the mix - crank the volume and tone controls, and the vibrant sound of the short scale neck springs to life to cut through the mix and hold the rhythm.
Short scale comfort and tone
Of course the short scale length the EB-0's neck makes it easier to navigate the fretboard, and is perfect for beginners and players with smaller hands. But did you know that the scale length of a guitar or bass has a direct impact on its tone? The harmonics your bass guitar generates are spaced along the strings based on the length of the strings - shorter strings mean the harmonics are packed in tighter, giving any note you play more harmonic richness than a longer scale would. Just plug the EB-0 bass into your bass amp and you'll see what we mean, as notes come alive and cut through the mix without becoming overbearing.
A classic Epiphone bass
In the mid-'60s, the EB-0 "SG" bass was the only bass being produced by Epiphone. And they must have gotten it right on the first try, because the EB-0 bass became a favorite of rock icons like Bill Wyman of The Rolling Stones, Jack Bruce from Cream, and John Entwistle from The Who. This EB-0 bass gives you the vintage vibe and feel of the original, without the vintage price tag.
