Greetings fellow bass players. I'm a new four string player. I promised myself that after I get five or six songs under my belt; I'd purchase myself a second bass. Well, with lots of hard work I'm slowly working my way towards that goal. I've started looking and the one bass that has caught my eye (that is within my price range) is the Epiphone EB-3; my preferred color is black. I just wanted members to opine about this machine (how it plays, looks, hardware etc..). Thanks in advance for your help on reviewing this "monster machine" for me.
