Epiphone Viola™ Bass in Vintage Sunburst Model EBVIVSCH Bass Guitar.
Epiphone introduces the Viola, one of the most recognized basses in the world. A popular bass for British Invasion bands who couldn’t afford finer Gibson and Epiphone instruments, 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 thier vintage price tag. Epiphone engineers have solved those problems with our Viola, which has the same classic sound with improved pickups, hardware, and electronics.
The Epiphone Viola features a laminated Maple top and Maple body in a beautiful Vintage Sunburst (VS) finish. The unique 30.5” scale Maple neck is hand set and glued. The fingerboard has a a 12” radius, a 1.65” nut, and classic dot inlays. The headstock riffs on our Epiphone’s Sloped Dovewing design seen on Epiphone models through the 60s.
The Epiphone Viola’s unique tonal range comes from a NYR (neck) and NYT (bridge) mini humbucker which accentuates the natural tone of the Maple body.
The Viola has a vintage inspired scroll tailpiece, Epiphone Premium 14:1 ratio tuning machines, and a compensated bridge and saddle. Each pickup has its own Volume controls along with a Master Tone control. All electronics use full-size 500KΩ potentiometers.
