Bass made in Indonesia ... 20 frets and 4 pots for volume and tone control.

UTILIZATION

The handle is quite nice, everything is pretty easy. It stings the dice that the head loose but it does not bother me in my game ... The sound palette is interesting and just a little tweaking to get a sound that suits us.

SOUNDS

I bought it to complete my game with my Fender Std. Jazz Bass 2012: have a more electric sound more "vintage" and more aggressive. I play a little Vox Pathfinder 10w (for me) and a Markbass CMD 151 (in rehearsal and concert). Personally, I am quite impressed by the sound of this bass is an entry-level (and away from the price of the Gibson model).

OVERALL OPINION

Hot stamping: I just unpacked the home and I tried it at the store ... It was a lightning strike, was that in his look. I have not tried anything special before buying Epiphone: I played on a Yamaha 170 Rbx on a Squier Vintage PB on a Fender JB Std 2012 and this one. There is nothing to say about the look, the sound is still upgradable setting and small mods (the original strings:!! Ugh) but keeping almost everything. The quality / price is very good: € 312 for a bass that I personally find beautiful and with its super nice. This choice I would definitely but I'll wait to have played a few times with Miss Epiphone before confirming.
