Don't Forget

The EB 5 Bass goes deep with a heavier low end than ever before.

The 2017 EB 5 Bass is the most extreme and improved redesign of Gibson's 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 and that low-B string to take you super deep. It's delivered in a padded gig bag with a strap and polishing cloth.

Comments about Gibson EB Bass 5 String T 2017 Electric Bass:

I wish it came with a hard shell case, but for the money, it's pretty hard to beat.
