eb-3 cherry

love it! love it! absolutely beautiful and sounds like a dream. Thanks guys!

Like I Like It

WoW!!! Would be a correct term. I've been looking for a bass that would give me DEEP LOW END sound like Cream's Jack Bruce from my cabinets and head and this one certainly does. A lot of people have complaints about mudbuckers but between the bridge and neck pickups I get the sound I want. This Epiphone EB-3 has a fit and finish that is bar none, definitely a keeper. She's a beauty in the transparent cherry finish so I've given her a name and it's "Ruby". The bass arrived in 3 days and set up was great right out of the box. I'd like to thank Nick Huskins for his superb assistance. Sweetwater you guys got it going!!!

Another winner from Epiphone and Sweetwater!

I have several Epiphones in my collection, from a Les Paul to Dot and SG, and all have been excellent guitars that I have been very pleased with. This EB-3 bass did not disappoint either. It has a beautiful finish and great action. Value for price you can not go wrong and Sweetwater comes through again with excellent service. Thank you once again!

Beautiful Bass

I have to look at the headstock to remind me this isn't a Gibson from the 60's. It definitely has the Gibson vibe. It's a beauty to look at. With the dual pickups and the three-way selector switch, you can get a lot of different tones. I like this bass so much, I had to buy the matching SG 400.

Gorgeous. Lightweight. Small Neck. Cheap!

I couldn't be happier buying the EB-3 for my first (and last) bass. The SG style and color match my Gibson Doubleneck, and this bass is just as beautiful, and solid. My hands are small, and the neck on the EB-3 feels very comfortable which makes it easy to play. It sounds like a bass...so I can't argue about the sound. But hooking it up to a Bass Floor Pedal (your choice) seals the deal, especially if it has drum patterns to play along with. It is lightweight, which is another plus. It is neck heavy, but I solve that by using a simple strap that goes around my leg and hooks on to the end pin. (I invented it for the Doubleneck). With the light weight and the neck dive issue solved this thing can be played for hours with no fatigue, leaving me free to let go with either hand to twist knobs or pencil lyrics. For the price, I am simply amazed. Who says beauty and satisfaction can't be had for a song? How can they sell this for so cheap and make money?
