An EB is just an SG with fat strings, BTW. Thought I should make that clear :)
Actually, the current models are called “SG Bass” and not EB.

I really enjoy it, but I do wish they had replicated a true mudbucker in there. The SG Bass just has a generic humbucker in mudbucker clothing.

I used to have a 2013 EB, which was nothing like the SG-shaped EBs of yore…

Oh heck yeah.

The Gibson Les Paul Junior Tribute DC Bass is at the top of my mind when I think: Next bass is a ....

Hear tell the Epi EB-0 packs a sidewinder, and by all accounts it's a decent pickup. Never seen nor played one IRL, so can't say. Would be fun to own one, except I'll be wanting to mod it and ... $ :: wings :: $

I dig Gibson basses. (y)

I believe the Gibson gets a standard neck while the Epiphone gets a narrow noodle. I loved my EB-3 but it was not a bolt on neck so there was nothing I could do to denoodle it. Its literally the scrawniest neck Ive ever gripped, I had to sell it. I loved the tonal blending options witch I am surprised to see your Gibson does not have. Why is that?. :unsure:

The modern run of Gibsons are just VVT like a Jazz bass.

Nice looking Epi, btw.

I love Gibson, I just cant afford them. That's why I started making my own. The fact is, you can make anything almost sound like anything else. Especially with hearing loss and some LSD.
Freaking genius! I come here for the education. It's become an upper level college course.

2013 EB

Sounded kinda like a Thunderbird
Played kinda like a P bass
Looked kinda like a Mosrite

They ever figure out how to make these balance on a strap? The two times I seriously went to buy a Gibson I found them neck heavy AF.
EB3 and some weird ass T-bird model.

Ive had the EB and the Thunderbird and the bird was far more of a nose diving mud skipper than the EB ever was. Best way to play a bird would be to stab it head first in the ground and play it like an upright.

Remount the rear strap button.
It changes the axis and center of gravity.

We have a new rule at my shop.
We don't work for our subcontractors.
I feel the same way about buying expensive crap knowing I will have to fix it before I use it.
And that's why G&L's aren't really on my radar anymore.
I must say that before I went on hiatus from the club y'all were waving the G&L flag high and mighty. WTF happened in the last year?. Hell G&L is the foundation of what started the SCTMMC. Sad to hear this.
