The EEB (Eastwood Electric Bass) Bass is a tribute to the AMPEG AEB model from the late 1960's. Strange yet elegant, the EEB has a look like no other Bass. The F-holes are cut completely through the body for an unusual see-through look. Original AEB models sell for more than $2,500 in todays Vintage Guitar market.

I received it yesterday and my finger hurts already. :)
I played guitar for 10 years and I just purchased this beauteous thing.
For now everything seems good, it arrived quickly and in a good condition.
I am going to pay attention to the mechanics since the tune seem to go quite often, but it might be because of the new strings.and if anything, I'm not affraid of ugrades so that's fine.
I just learnt my first song and I have a few others in mind so, if you don't mind... :)
(lol, captcha is dolores woodside which kind of translate to pain by wood )

I play this great bass .... in a Salsa outfit, of course, commemorating its heritage! I bought it sight unseen direct and was in fact surprised by every aspect of it: build quality, finish, flexibility, character - great value for the money. The neck has a wonderful vintage feel and is highly comfortable to play - the way the instrument is balanced is also spot on. The sound is very smooth and full-bodied, and surprisingly variable given that there's just one pickup - but they got the voicing of the tone control just right, like on a good P-Bass.
As an added bonus, I get a quite of compliments for the looks of the bass and the special through-f-hole feature. Never get any compliments for my looks .... well, you win some - you loose some. The EEB lets me win a few more :-))
A really fun-instrument - highly recommended!

This is my fourth Eastwood instrument and like the others the EEB-1 arrived in tune and ready to play. I liked it with the round wounds it came with but I was looking for the character of the Rick Danko sound and found that a set of Chrome flat wounds gave me that in spades. I know Danko had a P-bass pickup on his but this EW pickup has a great character of its own. I find that, with the Chromes at least, where you play with your right hand has an even more profound effect than usual. The low notes are clear and well-defined and the neck feels great. It took me a couple of missed notes at the bottom of the neck to get used to the fact that the neck feels longer than a Fender because the body is smaller so your strap attaches further away from the end of the neck but there's no problem getting used to that.
And did I mention how cool it looks???
Anyhow, like my other Eastwood instruments I am very pleased with the quality of workmanship and design. Well done Eastwood!!!
