I feel like buying an old electroacoustic bass for a vintage tone (and look). Beatle bass, Gibson EB2, or maybe an epiphone, or some other. I don't especially love short scales basses, but with flatwound strings, they are okay. I really a really easy playing bass to play with my thumb when I sing lead. I was wondering if you guys would have any advises, preferences, or whatever to help me make up my mind. Or one the other side, do you think these are obsolete dinosaurs and that I should stick to my upright and jazz bass. Even that Rogue imitation seems like such a nice little bass, how does it compare to the real Hofner ?
