Epiphone LP Special Bass
I have this one in a Flame-top finish. For the money this bass has exceeded my expectations. If your into making heavy music, funk, or driving rock you won't be disappointed. A good range of tonal variety can be had with the controls. Everything, fit and finish-wise, is excellent, especially something in this price range & mass-produced. To be honest, they could have replaced the Epiphone logo with a Gibson logo, charged more, and I doubt too many players would know it's actually a non-usa made instrument. To me it's what a bass should be- neck through, heavy, and capable of making a huge sound. No regrets with this one. Looks cool to boot! Go try one for yourself, it's worth the $$$.
