    Gibson EB 5-String 2014 Electric Bass Guitar Features

    Body and Neck
    The 2014 EB Bass 5-String is made from a solid swamp ash body with glued-in maple neck. Its asymmetrical double-cutaway body style is timeless, yet entirely original, and designed for forearm comfort and an ergonomic playing position whether seated or standing. The full-size, 34 inch scale-length neck carries a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays and a 120th Anniversary banner inlay at the 12th fret.

    Pickups and Electronics
    The firm sonic foundation of the EB Bass is amplified via two of Gibson’s innovative new Alnico rod humbucking bass pickups, which offer extreme clarity and string definition even when thundering through a cranked bass stack. Coil taps offer brighter, snappier tones, while a rim-mounted barrel jack provides a safe and secure place to plug in.

    Hardware
    A Babicz Full Contact bridge provides a rock-solid anchor at the body end for optimum resonance and sustain, complemented by efficient modern tuners. A multi-ply black pickguard and black truss-rod cover complete the package.

    Case and Coverage
    The 2014 EB Bass 5-String comes protected in a vintage-brown Gibson hardshell case, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner’s manual, and is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s 24/7/365 Customer Service.

    The new EB Bass provides a new and tremendously comfortable body shape to a glued-in, 34 inch scale, full-size 5-string neck for the player who wants to take it lower, and two awesome sounding new humbucking bass pickups for unprecedented power and fidelity. Whether you play in-the-pocket funk, warm and sultry jazz, or raging rock, the EB Bass is primed to take it on.

    The foundation of the new 2014 EB Bass from Gibson USA lies in a solid ash body and glued-in maple neck. Ash has long been respected for its open, resonant tone, and lends itself perfectly to a rich, versatile-voiced bass. Add Gibson’s new Alnico rod bass humbuckers with coil taps, a Babicz Full Contact bridge for perfect intonation and increased sustain, and wrap it in your choice of five vintage-gloss finishes—Brilliant Red, Fireburst, Natural, Bullion Gold, or Vintage Sunburst—and it’s an exceptional way to lay down the low end.

    Great Bass Great Value
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I love this bass. First the negatives: The plastic pickup covers feel cheap, and when I adjusted one, it didn't seem to move in the cavity very well. I had to adjust the neck a bit after breaking it in (Probably 1/4 turn) as it was bowing. It's a thin neck! My biggest gripe is with the tone knobs. They roll off sharply at first, then have almost no effect. You get a HUGE change between 8-10, affecting volume--which can surprise you in a gig. The switchable single coils offer very dynamic voice options. Now the good-plays great, intonation is superb even up high, and the neck is smooth-great for slides. Strings are fantastic, not sure what kind. Love the HB tone, very warm and powerful, my model is the passive, ash body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard. Tuners are fantastic! I've gotten so many compliments on the looks of guitar and case. Superb design Gibson! I will hang on to this one.

    Excellent bass for a steal of a price!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I've been playing guitar and bass for 15 years. Gibson doesn't have the best reputation as far as bass guitars go but this completely redesigned EB is fantastic. The natural tone you get out of the swamp ash body and maple neck is beautiful and the coil tapped humbuckers give you a wide range of ways to dial in whatever sound you're going for. The sustain is probably the best part of this thing for me, I have honestly never played a bass with sustain this good. My only complaint is that when I received it, it had not been set up... At all. The bridge had never been touched to set the action or intonation. Luckily I set up all my guitars myself anyway because I am very picky about it so that didn't cause me any problems. Once I got it all set up it was phenomenal in all aspects. Just keep in mind if you are considering any Gibson guitar or bass that it may or may not be setup correctly or at all.

    Beautiful
    What is your opinion of this product?
    That's as simple as I can put it. I got the natural and the photo don't do it any justice. It sounds great straight from the box. Just tune it to pitch and away you go. The hard case that comes with it is just as nice, brown leather look and gold trim, nice size storage compartment inside for cable and tuner or strings.

    LOVE IT
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I have played Bass for 30+ years. My favorite was a 1991 Epiphone until now. Gibson has outdone themselves with the EB5. I have paired it with the Peavey tour TNT and the sound is incredible. This bass has the rumbling lows to the highs with great sustain and no sound drops. The balance is perfect. Mine is the natural finish and is beautiful, I always get compliments on it. The pickups are among the best, you can adjust infinite sounds with them. The neck is thin enough to play the 5 strings easy and quickly yet wide enough that you don't have to worry about your low string dropping off fret. The Gibson 120 year inlay is a beautiful addition and well worth the extra $50. Overall I am totally pleased with this guitar. I was considering a more expensive bass but determined that the EB5 is as quality in workmanship and sound as basses costing much more. Just try one and enjoy.

    Gibson EB5 Bass - Good Value for the money!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Took delivery of this Brilliant red Gibson EB5 three days ago. After letting it rest for a couple of hours, I began inspecting it. The workmanship is excellent, paint job is spot on. I have never been a HUGE fan of Gotoh tuners, but they seem to perform as expected. Fretboard has a HUGE chunk of rosewood - probably the thickest I have seen on a bass! That's a GOOD thing. Unfortunately, the B String is too floppy for my taste - but it is functional. The neck itself feels absolutely wonderful although it is a tad "wide" at the joint - but nothing that can't be overcome.
