Gene Simmons is a legendary rock icon and bassist from KISS. And if you saw KISS perform their highoctane live shows and television appearances in the 1970s, you may have spotted the bass that inspired this signature model from Gene Simmons and Gibson Custom. Based on Gene’s heavily modified 1959 EB-0, 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. Gene made several modifications to his EB-0, including refinishing it, reshaping the neck to a custom profile, replacing the pickup with a later model Gibson unit and relocating it much closer to the bridge, installing a custom pickguard, adding binding, and changing the original tuners to Grovers®. The bridge was also replaced with a high-mass model and can now be strung through-body or as a top-loaded bridge. All of these details are faithfully represented in the new Gibson Custom Gene Simmons EB-0 Bass. A custom hardshell case is also included.
