The EPI bass guitar, or EB-S, was manufactured between 1961 and 1969; and this example comes from the middle year, 1965. 1964-1966 were the peak years for the Newport and this is the popular version. Our tribute version will try to stay true to the original: mahogany body, mahogany set (glued-in) neck with rosewood fretboard.

This combination of woods, pickup and construction give the Newport a distinctive deep, rich tone, but brighter snarlier tones are possible when played down by the bridge, rather than over the pickup. The short scale and light weight makes for a very playable instrument and very popular with guitar players.
