    Gibson 2014 EB5 Electric Bass, 5-String (with Case) Product Description

    As part of their 120th Anniversary celebration, Gibson USA has brilliantly reconceived every corner of its lineup, and nowhere is this evolution more in evidence than with the EB Bass. This full-scale, 5-string bass follows a long line of great EB models, while bringing shape, look, sound, and versatility to the board, and all with truly unbelievable value for a hand-made-in-America electric bass.

    The EB Bass marries extremely comfortable body shape to a glued-in, 34"-scale, full-size 5-string neck for the player who wants to take it lower, and two awesome sounding 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 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 Alnico rod bass humbuckers with coil taps, a Babicz Full Contact bridge for perfect intonation and increased sustain.

    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"-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 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.


    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.
