"Not too bad, but give me something else."
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
I have owned this bass for a year now, and have a few problems with this product. When I originally bought it, it had some wiring problems. Nothing too major, but very annoying to have to repair a piece of equipment right out of the box. This bass has some very distinct sounds. Either very deep, or very tinny/high end.
I love that this bass has a humbucker, and sidewinder pick up, and that you can mix and select which pick up, and how much of each is heard in the main mix.
Ease of Use:
The SG body is very cool looking, and its quiet distinctive. Not easly mistaken. But with this design you have to constantly compete with supporting the neck because it is very neck heavy. Once you get used to it though, its not a big deal.
Epiphone is a good company for the money. The paint job, and overall look of the bass was incredible. But as far as the internal wiring goes, it really hurt my desire to purchase from them again...
I never had to use them.
For the money, it is a good buy for the bassist who is looking for something to add a different sound to their line up.
The Wow Factor:
This is an incredibly sexy bass, but it has some minor things that you will need to get used to. Nothing too bad though.
I would love to keep the set neck and the humbuckers, as well as the selector switch, but the sound is just, "Not my cup of tea".
