I think you can still get the Epi EB3 in both short and long scale. the short scale is harder to find but can still be bought here in the UK. Having played both I like the sound and feel of the long scale EP3 better.
I think the E string sounds better on the longer scale and not as floppy.
I know my long scale Eb3 came with made in the USA pickups and pots. and is a nice bass for the money.
