The Epiphone Viola Electric Bass Guitar is Epiphone’s take on one of the most recognized basses in the world. A popular bass for British Invasion bands, the Viola's unique construction and woody tone produce unique sound on stage and in the studio. Today, vintage models are difficult to find and are often plagued by vintage problems along with their vintage price tag. Epiphone engineers have solved those problems with their Viola Bass, which has the same classic sound with improved pickups, hardware, and electronics.
The Look of A Classic
The Epiphone Viola bass features a laminated maple top and maple body in a beautiful finish. The eye catching 30.5 inch scale maple neck is hand set and glued in and includes a Pau Ferro fingerboard with a 12 inch radius, a 1.65 inch nut, and classic dot inlays. The headstock riffs on Epiphone's famous 60's Sloped Dovewing headstock.
Vintage Tone For Today
The Epiphone Viola's incredible tone comes from a NYR (neck) and NYT (bridge) mini humbucker which perfectly compliment the ultra light maple body.
Epiphone's Famous Hardware
Epiphone's stellar hardware features a classic inlaid gold tailpiece, a rosewood bridge with s compensated rosewood saddle, Volume controls for each pickup and a Master Tone, all using full-size 500K O potentiometers, and premium 14:1 machine heads.
