So i'm considering a hollowbody, and I want some opinions on the J.C and Belvedere. Currently I play a 4003, but I find it a little on the heavy side. Love the sound though. Curiously I find the Epiphone Thunderbird more comfortable to play than the 4003! I don't know what the weight is but it seems less than the 4003 and I like the long reach on the neck. It just works for me. So I guess it comes down to neck feel between the two basses and also the sound and the quality of build. I play mostly classic rock, blues and Christian. I don't have the chance to try before I buy so it will be a buy and try deal. Any suggestions?
