I am not concerned about the look. I don't need it to sound like an original EB3. I just want something unique that sounds good to me. Another thing that will change that classic EB tone is that I used a standard jazz neck so its not a short scale bass anymore.
I normally use a Fender Jazz Bass Special with a P/J setup and while it sounds really great, I want something with a little more bottom end hence the EB3. However, I hate muddy bass tones. Bassy and clear is fine but once it loses definition its just bleh.
