Granada EB-3 Copy Reviews
I'm more a guitarist than a bassist, but this bass makes playing bass fun.
I was a reluctant bassist in a way, but this bass made it fun. The real EB-3 bass, by Gibson is one mostly associated with Jack Bruce--especially during the Cream years. This copy looks quite close, but it doesn't have the varitone switch of the original. It has a regular pick-up selector switch. Granada was a brand name used for the "in-house" guitars the music school sold, and most students used. The solid bodies were made by Aria. I posted on the electric guitar section a review of my Les Paul copy--whereas that received a lesser review--the bass gets a better one. It's better made and mroe fun to play as a bass, than the Les Paul copy is as a guitar. However, I have a real Les Paul to compare that one with. I've never played areal EB-3--so maybe my opinion would change. I've often considered getting a different bass, but so far I've wound up sticking with this one.zontar rated this unit on 2007-10-21.
