:: For example, compare the old Gibson EB-0 and EB-3; the 3 is *much* more flexible, simply because the big Gibson bass pickup has such a deep tone. For that, having 2 pickups would probably be better.

: Skip, speaking of EB-3s, I went to Sam Ash the other weekend to get a set of strings, and what was hanging on the wall? An Epiphone long scale EB-3 brand
: new! I mean the plastic was still on the pickups! No big sign on it or anything.
: It was $439.00 (don't know if it was with or w/o case) No, I didn't try it out.
: If I did, I might have taken it home and I gotta be cool for awhile. I wonder if it's a small production run or a new Epi product. Man, it was beautiful, cherry red! Oh the pain. It looked exactly like a Gibson. Even though those basses were neck heavy, I love them. Such a thick, heavy sound. Ah the memories! I just had to vent.

The long-scale EB-3 is a regular part of the Epiphone line! :-)
