Gorgeous. Lightweight. Small Neck. Cheap!
by Richie Miller from Joshua Tree, CA USAI couldn't be happier buying the EB-3 for my first (and last) bass. The SG style and color match my Gibson Doubleneck, and this bass is just as beautiful, and solid. My hands are small, and the neck... read more [+] on the EB-3 feels very comfortable which makes it easy to play. It sounds like a bass...so I can't argue about the sound. But hooking it up to a Bass Floor Pedal (your choice) seals the deal, especially if it has drum patterns to play along with. It is lightweight, which is another plus. It is neck heavy, but I solve that by using a simple strap that goes around my leg and hooks on to the end pin. (I invented it for the Doubleneck). With the light weight and the neck dive issue solved this thing can be played for hours with no fatigue, leaving me free to let go with either hand to twist knobs or pencil lyrics. For the price, I am simply amazed. Who says beauty and satisfaction can't be had for a song? How can they sell this for so cheap and make money? close [-]

by X the Dead Pawn from Hell (Texas)I've only played it a couple times at my local shop but, believe me after three years palying bass I know a thing or two about them.

BUT, it's built for Rock see the SG body and you can guess that I'm mainly into Slipknot, and the like and for that it fits the bill it's almost as good as a 5 string, So those of you looking to get thoose low deep notes but, don't want to relearn how to play bass forget the 5 stringers and pick this up instead. close [-]

Great Bass for the bucks
by Tigercat from Kansas City, Mo.The reason I was looking for an EB-3 was; 1. I think it is one of the best styled basses that there ever was; 2. I wanted to play around with converting it to a low-B string bass. I play in a praise b... read more [+]and every week, and the low B of a five string fits in most of our music. My normal 5-string is a "Ric", but I also play a "Epi 5-string Firebird on occasion. The EB-3 converted very nicely to a low B set-up. I had to raise the birdge a tad to releave the buzz. The whole thing would have been a 5-star, but I had to rework the cord input. The threads were stripped, and it was loose from the factory. Also the action was set to low. Alot of buzz. I do love the finish and detail Epiphone put into the guitar. I would buy one again, and recommend it to anyone who likes the looks and loves to tinker a bit. The tone is mellow, and the sustain is as good as my "Ric". Well worth the money. close [-]

by Tom Bramhall from Huntsville, AlabamaOkay, it has a neck more like a jazz bass only set. It still sounds Gibson like, only in this case the pickups not being so strong is a favor. The "mud-bucker" bass pickup is not really oppressive and... read more [+] the bridge pickup alone or mixed is useful. It isn't a Fender, but isn't that the whole point of buying it? Really is a cool item for what it is. It can be setup to play nicely and build quality for the price is pretty good. close [-]
