One of the most recognisable body styles ever made – the Epiphone Viola Bass’ unique size and shape gives it a sweet, vintage 60’s tone. A solid maple body and laminated maple top offers up a resonant, detailed character with a rich mid range presence. The perfect bass for capturing the iconic sound and style of the 1960s British Rock invasion!
Sweet vintage tone and a unique aesthetic
The Epiphone Viola bass pays homage to the iconic British bass sound, courtesy of two mini humbuckers and vintage violin-style body.
Measuring up at a 30.5″ scale length, the Viola is surprisingly easy to play. The 12″ radiused neck is slender enough for even the most complex fret runs, similar to the Gibson and Epiphone high performance electric guitars. Powered by NYR and NYT mini humbucker pickups, you can dial in everything from muddy, thick tones to punchy top end.
The Epiphone Viola Bass is an affordable way to rock out with a vintage violin bass without the hefty price and inherent problems when buying old, used guitars.
