Inspired by the rare '60s classic, this Embassy Pro bass features ProBucker pickups, mahogany body and a rock-solid Tune-o-Matic bridge and claw tailpiece.
The original Epiphone Embassy was introduced in 1963, the same year as the legendary Thunderbird, and became Epiphone's premier solid-body electric bass. The Embassy PRO Bass combines the best of the Embassy's classic features with some key design improvements. The Mahogany body now has a slightly longer upper "horn" for great balance and the glued-in Mahogany neck comes with a two-way adjustable truss rod for perfect set-up. The neck has a 1960's SlimTaperTM-D profile, a Pau Ferro fingerboard with pearloid "Dot" inlays, a 34" scale length, a 12" radius, and 22 medium jumbo frets. The Antique Ivory color finish comes with a black/white pickguard while the Dark Cherry and Ebony finishes have a white/black pickguard. The classic Epiphone Sloped Dove wing headstock has a 60s era pearloid "Epiphone" logo as well as a "2017" commemorative logo on the back of the headstock.
ProBucker Bass Pickups
The Embassy PRO Bass is powered by Epiphone's critically acclaimed ProBucker #760 Bass Pickups which are made with the same attention to detail as the ProBucker and P-90 PRO guitar pickups. ProBucker 760s are inspired by the original Thunderbird and Embassy pickups from the 60s and feature 18% Nickel Silver Covers, German- manufactured Elektrisola Magnet wire, Alnico IV sand cast magnets, and braided coaxial lead wire and are vacuum wax potted to eliminate microphonic's. Epiphone has also recreated the original Epiphone "Barrel" knobs with metal inserts for Master Volume, Blend, and Master Tone controls.
Rock Solid Hardware
The Embassy PRO Bass now includes a modern adjustable Tune-o-matic bridge and a 60s styled "Claw" tailpiece along with a "barrel style" 1/4" rim-mounted output jack. The overall balance of the Embassy is also improved by 2-to-a-side Premium Die-Cast Bass machine heads with a super pro 17:1 tuning ratio.
