    New Dillion EB-3 (Gibson copy) finished in factory black. Features neck set design like the original (not bolt-on like Epiphone), large humbucking p/u in the neck position and mini humbucker p/u at the bridge. There are 2 volume and 2 tone controls with three way toggle pickup selector switch. The tuners are Gotoh style. The bass features beautiful mother of pearl inlays on the neck and headstock. The frets themselves are extra wide for extra long fret life and the bass has a beautiful Rosewood neck fretboard. This bass has a medium scale length of 32". Width at the nut is 1 3/4". Width of the neck at the 12th fret is 2 1/4". The neck is fully adjustable via its truss rod. The bridge features fully adjustable saddles for each individual string for string height and intonation. Included is a chrome pick-up cover hand rest that straddles the strings just in front of the bridge pickup. This particular item is from a EB-3 and was added to the bass after it left the factory. Only this piece has some very minor surface scratching on it. Strings are new D'Addario EXL-160M roundwounds. The hard shell deluxe case that is included is also brand new. This is a amazing sounding bass that is easy and very comfortable to play for anyone. Dillion guitars and basses are made in Korea and now Vietnam. This bass is from the Korean factory. Dillion's are extremely well made instruments and they include top quality hardware. Dillion owners rave about their instruments, check the Harmony-Central.com website for Dillion owner user comments. This bass was part of a very small production run and is quite rare, especially in this finish. If you are looking for that classic EB-3 SG Gibson body styling, don't let this bass pass you by. The bass is absoutely mint (no marks) never having being gigged with. The bass is sold as is and the sale is final. Price is $495.00 US plus shipping

    Thats all right. But do you remember if it had any neck dive and how did it compare to the Epiphone models?

    There was no neck dive with this bass, it balanced very well. Quality fit finish, hardware and over all construction of the Dillion is far superior to any of the Epiphone EB models IMO.
