A Classic Bass Design and a Great Value!

The Epiphone EB-3 solidbody 4-string bass gives you big tone and fast playability, thanks to its combination of a long-scale set-neck design, SG-style double-cutaway body, and dual-pickup configuration. The EB-3 bass's mahogany body is equipped with a heavy-duty bridge, a Sidewinder bridge pickup, and an NYT Bass mini-humbucker for maximum sustain and a range of great tones. The mahogany neck is slim and comfortable, and its rosewood fingerboard includes classy trapezoid inlays. Sure, it's a very affordable instrument but the EB-3 is also a great-playing tone monster of a bass!

Sweetwater experience

The EB3 has exactly the sound for the music I love. A little gritty for some tastes, but for rock perfect. Easy to play, thin neck for us with less than large hands. Controls are simple and easy to use. The fit, finish and overall appearance was perfect. No blemishes, nicks, scaches, etc. It was even in tune when I received it. The staff at Sweetwater were phenomenal. It may be the best I have ever dealt with in my many days. From beginning to end a six star experience. Come for the excellent bass, stay for the service.

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.
