First Look: Epiphone Newport Bass
Varied, blendable pickups help a super-affordable, vintage-style looker perform with modern panache.
The Epiphone Newport Bass is an all-original design that debuted in 1961. The modern Newport Bass pays tribute to that rare vintage model while offering refinements to meet the needs of today’s bassists. The 30.5” scale length and comfortable Medium C profile make it suitable for players with a wide range of hand sizes, while the symmetrical double-cutaway body ensures excellent access to every fret. The Bass Sidewinder neck pickup provides rich, deep tones, while the TB PRO in the bridge position delivers brighter timbres. The two pickups are paired with master volume and tone controls and a blend knob so you can get precisely the tonal balance you desire. Available with a classic Cherry finish and three custom colors - California Coral, Sunset Yellow, and Pacific Blue.
