If you saw Kiss in the ’70s, you’ve seen Gene Simmons’ classic EB-0 bass. Gibson has now announced a brand new reissue of the iconic instrument, dubbed the Gene Simmons EB-0 Bass, limited to 100 pieces worldwide.
The new Gene Simmons EB-0 Bass is the first 30.5″scale bass from the Gibson Custom Shop and the first bass the Custom Shop has produced in quantity. The Gene Simmons EB-0 Bass features a VOS finish in Ebony, as well as VOS hardware throughout. The Gene Simmons EB-0 Bass offers some of Simmons’ own modifications including a custom-profile neck, adding a pickup, installing a custom pickguard, a fingerboard with Corian nut, adding binding, and putting on some Grover tuners. The bridge on the Gene Simmons EB-0 also allows players to either string through the bridge, or go right through the body.
The Gene Simmons EB-0 Bass is available here for the tidy sum of $6,499.
