EB 4 Bass 2017
HeavyLowEndInACompletelyNewDesign
Heavy low end in a completely new design. The 2017 EB 4 Bass is the most extreme and improved redesign of our EB Bass yet. Loaded with high quality components like EB Rhythm and Lead humbuckers, a Babicz Full Contact bridge, and Grover tuners, the superbly resonant Swamp-ash body has been fully redesigned to offer amazing ergonomics and great access to the upper frets. This is the low end done Gibson style, with optimum power and playability. It's delivered in a padded gigbag with a strap and polishing cloth.
