Epiphone has kicked off 2021 in stellar fashion, with the super-affordable new Starling range of acoustics and the Bigsby-equipped Emperor Swingster hollowbody leading its fresh product announcements. And now, the guitar giant has relaunched one of its fan-favorite bass guitars, the Embassy.

Featuring the same asymmetrical double-cutaway shape as the original 1963 version, the new model boasts a solid mahogany body, 34“ mahogany neck, 2x2 headstock design and an Indian laurel fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets and pearloid dot inlays.
