"This bass growls! Great sounding articulate bass especially for rock"

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
The truss rod had been really cranked on this thing and it was unplayable as was so 'i loosened the truss rod quite a bit and over about a period of a week 'i got the thing playing nice, the bass looks good and plays good but the sound is killer. I own approx 10 other basses all much more expensive American made basses such as Fenders, Rickenbacker and Gibsons and this bass sounds just as good if not better than most of them, there are no dead spots on the neck, you get a good resonant fundamental all the way up and down. This bass has a growl to it that just cuts right through, I have gotten many compliments on it's sound, two of them being that it growls (and it does) and that it's very articulate which it is. I also bought the matching hard shell case for it, (no gig bags for this guy). I'm very happy with it and highly recommend them if you don't mind doing a little set up yourself. This bass is a keeper. Fit and finish are very good, the neck is a substantial deep D shape not like a T-Bird at all, also it felt like a medium scale bass but is long scale, a friend asked the same thing, that friend is thinking of getting one he liked it so much in fact, if you like slim thin necks it may not be for you but it just sounds so damn good you might want one anyway and you can't beat the price.It sounds great with both pickups full on also the neck full on and anywhere in between, with the bridge alone you can get a throaty jazzy sound which I don't really use much. This is an excellent rock bass, it can also thump if you put a little rolled up cloth under the strings between the bridge pickup and the bridge, so it's pretty versatile. Also it's very light with no neck dive at all, very comfortable bass. All in all I'm very happy with this bass and it is a keeper. Do it!

"Took a little work "
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I just got this bass and was a little worried early on because it had bad fret buzz on all strings in the first 3 frets. I contacted zZounds tech support and was given the ok to adjust the action and still have the option to return within 45 days. to get the 7/64ths on the low string and 5/64ths on the high string probably took a solid 2 rotation on each side of the bridge. But now that it is set up, it is an incredible bass for the price! the tone is awesome low like a t-bird. I also own a Gibson thunder bird and Epiphone pro iv & v. this is a great light weight addition. The t-birds do have a slightly thinner/tapered neck, but this is very comparable. if you have played and old Gibson EBO or t-bird this will feel right at home.

"I’m very impressed"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I’ve really come around to Epiphone bass guitars. I own several. My Embassy Pro arrived. I tuned it up and it was ready to play with absolutely no adjustments needed. The intonation, the bridge set up and truss rod were all set. Everything so far works and sounds terrific. This is a great bass and it quite a bargain for the price.

"Something ended up wrong"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Bought the 'Blemished' model, and everything looked ok, just some swirl marks. But taking it in for a set-up there was a problem discovered with the neck from the 12th fret on. There was a rise in the fretboard, and no matter of tweaking could remedy it. It would need work including planing and refretting. There was a Huge smell of paint coming from the gigbag I bought for it after I got t back. That was something unexplainable. I'm simply not interested in another.
