    I've always found that the difference between Epiphone basses and their high end brothers is is only the name. If you like it then it's probably worth getting it :)

    In this particular case, the difference between a real Tobias or MTD and the Epi is slightly more than the name.

    That said, I've played a couple and found them to be good playing and sounding basses, especially considering the money. I don't know if they're the best thing in the price range or not, but worth considering. I wouldn't trade my Tobias Basic for one though.

    I would be looking at other brands in that price range if it were me. Gibson/Epi can barely make 6 strings right now let alone basses.

    I tried a couple at GC and didn't care for any of them. Shame too because in white they're quite beautiful.
