    Hi.

    Right i'm making a general Epiphone club. I did a search and couldn't find one. I know some of you are going to think not another club! but hear me out.

    There has recently been loads of specific Epiphone club threads. Whilst that might be good its stopping other Epiphone user joining. The Thunderbird and the Allen Woody Rumble Cat being the most recent one.

    So here it is if you have an Epiphone bass join here. Doesn't matter what type. If you have a Rumble Cat or Thunderbird you can join this one its up to you.

    I'll be assigning numbers. It's also nice to post up photo's of your bass.

    I'm number one the founding member.

    I've got an epiphone viola (beatle bass) which I love. I just tried it with my band the other night for the first time. It wasn't perfect for the more hard rock oriented numbers but it was outstanding for blues rock, motown, etc. I'll post a picture when I get a camera in a couple of days.

    I have another EB-1 fretted on the way. I'll probably replace the pickup when I get it.

    My Epi is right up there with my Fenders for regular use in my church's praise band. It just blends in so well! Doesn't have quite as much, shall we say, personality as the Fenders and is far less diverse, but geez, it just blends in so well. It fattens up and fills in the sound better than any bass I've ever played...and I'm really starting to love it for it!

    Gimme a number...

    My first bass ( had it almost a year) and my main bass is an Epiphone Viola... I love playing jazz and classic rock with it, and I use it almost exclusively when I play at church.... I have others, but the Epi is my fave... That may reduce when I get my Birdsong, but the Epi ain't going anywhere soon. I love the uprightish sound it can get... It is perfect for stuff like Brown Eyed Girl and of course Beatles stuff (LAdy Madonna was my first non-jazz band related bassline)

    i use mine for everything! jazz, funk, rock, i even sometimes play with the school orchestra! its quite funny really, a flying v being used for classical and jazz and such, the look doesent really suit the genre of music, but the tone always fits in so well! i love my v too pieces, its neck its so thin and so fast! i love the feel of it! and the stock pickups are great! the bridge pickup gives a really bassy beefy tone thats great for slap and the neck pickup has some real nice highs great for soloing and it also picks up the harmonics really well

    wouldent trade it for any other bass and i dont plan on it i love it to much, to many memories with it,

    My main bass is a sunburst Thunderbird. I love the looks and sound of it, especially for metal. :bassist:
