These objective data were well described in the notice of "anonymous"! I add that it is a low aesthetically beautiful
strong point is its light weight, the settings are effective and ample opportunities despite its fairly typical. After this is a short scale, with the advantages of disadvantages, handle easier to play but less sustain in the treble at the bottom of it
for her, it goes from one well to the blues genre flat daddy micro switch with serious! For my part, I played on the bridge pickup selector with fucking her nice round medium for edgy rock well with distortion, delay and wha wha by riffs, arpeggio and even agree, to larsens phew!
which means that between the two, each must find his happiness! y 'will freak the funk that will be hard to slap ...
used for 2 years in a progressive rock band, I loved this bass, beautiful and easy to play, the micro switch can switch from one sound to another in no time. My only complaint is that it is not always easy to play in acute cuffs due to a shorter pitch. For the rest, nothing to say, this is a low magic!
Only negative point: virtually impossible to find in France!

This is one of the first manufactured by Epiphone bass in Japan between 1971 and 1976.
His body is completely hollow, the handle is a short-scale with 20 boxes. It has a detachable string damper which is removable. The settings are just 2 vol., 2. tone selector and microphone.
The huge benefit of this is its low weight, it weighs nothing. The handle is nice for those who like short-scale.
The sound of this bass is rather the old. I use it for rock and pop 60's and 70's. With a tube amp, you think of Jack Bruce Cream period, or the Jefferson Airplane ... not for short slappeurs tapping and other fans! However, with new ropes and modern amp, it can fit a lot of music latest ...
I have this bass for a year and I do not leave any time soon. It is perfect for long concerts with light weight and its round and powerful ... the problem is to find one!

After trying an alternative to modern and vintage Fender United States, other Epiphone, Italia, Rickenbacker, etc.. I returned to the bass for me is definitely the best. It has a sound that stands alone in a mix through several guitars and lots of arrangements. The playability is perfect.
