Epiphone Viola Bass in Vintage Sunburst


With its distinct, immediately recognisable body shape, it's fair to say the Viola bass is one of the most unique looking instruments around. 

Historical Heritage 

Back in the day, the Viola was regarded as the go-to bass for British Invasion bands who couldn't quite afford the premium Epiphone and Gibson models on the market. It became a visual and tonal symbol of many of these acts. The woody sound and individualistic construction lent itself well to their respective sounds, both in the studio and on stage. 

Updated Engineering 

Nowadays, finding yourself an authentic model from the era is near-impossible. Either that, or they're ridiculously expensive, or subject to the common engineering issues of the time. Epiphone spent a long time reviewing the older models - allowing them to rectify and prevent issues occurring in this updated, modern version. There are no longer any of the problems present that plagued the original instruments. 

With this new variant of the Viola, you'll find the same iconic, legendary tone, enhanced by redesigned hardware, pickups and electronics. It's a blend of old-school style and swagger, mashed together with cutting-edge, current day engineering.
