Ergonomic body with slanted back, rounded edge and chambered design
EHB's headless construction and specially designed body enable the player to maintain a similar playing position whether seated or standing. The top half of the back of the body is slanted, which allows the bass to rest slightly closer to the player's body for better control and a more ergonomic feel. There is extra carving on the back of the body behind the lower horn for easier upper fret access. Its contoured, ergonomic design and chambered body make for a lightweight, well-balanced and comfortable instrument that’s excellent for long sets or practice sessions.
Poplar burl top and selected lightweight African mahogany body
A stunning Poplar Burl top and a selected lightweight African mahogany body provide a warm tone with rich resonance.
9-piece panga panga / walnut neck with graphite reinforcement rods
The 9-piece panga panga / walnut neck provides superior note attack, tight lows and increased sustain with the panga panga fretboard.
Nordstrand Big Split custom pickups
The single-coil Nordstrand Big Split pickups feature split coils with hum canceling construction for less noise. Their tone character is a hybrid P/J style and provides a rich and strong yet well-balanced tone, which fits well with various kinds of playing styles.
Vari-mid 3-band EQ with EQ bypass switch
The Vari-mid 3-band EQ features a variable mid frequency control which allows you to dial in an incredibly wide range of sounds. There is also an EQ bypass switch for passive operation with the treble control acting as a passive tone control when the EQ is bypassed.
MR5HS mono rail bridge with string spacing adjustable saddles
The MR5HS bridge is designed especially for EHB basses and features a wide intonation range. Each bridge piece is independently and securely attached to the body for maximum vibration transfer, and the saddles are adjustable for string spacing ±1.5mm, answering every bassist's individual string spacing demands, no matter what playing style. Teflon washers are used on each tuner for smooth tuning action.
Schaller S-Locks strap pins and Neutrik locking jack
Schaller S-Lock strap lock pins and a Neutrik locking jack hold your strap and cable securely.
Detachable finger ramp
A detachable finger ramp is included for comfortable finger picking.
