It is the worst bass I have ever played. It feels terrible, the neck is way too small and generally rubbish. This is only my opinion though, some people love it. I would highly suggest trying before you buy

Well I'm trying to get some opinions since I don't think I can review it myself Sad

I like it's style, and saw it's short scaled, maybe the long scale is better?

If you like the style, then I'd suggest taking a look at ESP Viper basses. Much better than Epiphone IMO, the neck is a bit more substantial

Hmm okay then... I'll try the Viper series then....

I played the Gibson version a few months ago... Was ok, but the short scale put me off, and it was a bit tricky to play fingerstyle because of the position/size of the pickup, as I normally rest my thumb on it. Definatley one to try before you buy, if possible...

About the pickup, I was thinking about it last night.
+1 to Definately try before buy!

For that price actually, it's worth a shot even just to try it out, it's not like you're spending loads on a high end bass you might not like.

Sound wise, it sounded 'nice', but there was no distinct sound to it. Although that was the Gibson version, I don't know how the Epiphone version would sound.

So the Vipers are more worthwhile than this one?

Indeed, and to be honest I started liking the guitar version before the bass but I am not a guitarist and I don't intent having an instrument that I won't play on my wall so I thought to give it a shot to the bass series. But the pickup problem is big indeed. I always play fingerstyle (well 90%) and it won't help me much dragging my hand to the pick to play... Sad

I've played the lowest end Viper and quite liked it. The neck is quite thin like the EB-0 but not overly so and is nice and chunky, so it doesn't feel like a toy
