EBG Instruments Introduces Vicious Bass Model
EBG Instruments has unveiled a new model to their lineup called the EBG-5 Vicious, which features a new body shape. The company launched the model with the EBG-5 Vicious Orion, which is a limited one-off piece to showcase the new design.
“Under the polished high-gloss finish you can see an extraordinary body, which is made of two woods: Flamed maple and bubinga are connected to each other to achieve this remarkable effect,” EBG writes. “But the bass can also convince with details. For example with the moon phase inlays in the fingerboard, or the subtle “Orion” inlay in the third fret, which gives the instrument its name.”
The bass continues EBG’s unique mix of innovations including a center block of aluminum that is CNC’ed from a solid block. While many of their instruments have carbon fiber necks, the Orion has a flamed maple neck with a bubinga headstock just like the body. It is fitted with a pair of Häussel Pickups (a P/J configuration) and active Richter electronics. Its controls include a volume, blend, bass boost, and treble boost. Finally, the hardware includes the EBG “FATSUS” bridge and Graphtec Ratio tuners.
The EBG Instruments EBG-5 Vicious is priced at $4,250.
