"Rare find...this one is a sleeper"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this on a whim because I was tired of playing “traditional” shaped Basses. I bought a thunderbird and thought I would try this one out right? Just to keep with a theme. Wow was I shocked: I had been looking at pickups to replace the stock ones and to my surprise I don’t need them. Epiphone has stepped up their game. A few minor tweaks and this thing is a beast. Way different from my t bird. This is what I was looking for. Great construction. Solid as a rock. Hardware is fantastic and gleams professionalism. Do not be scared of the name. I played many Gibsons and this bass will hold its own. The sound is warm but has quite a bite. Balanced well. I use a strap that is 3.5 inches wide and has an unfinished back. This bass rocks. Had it 1 day. zZounds rocks!
