    Dudes and dudettes - I have a chance to buy a new epiphone t-bird pro IV for $350. Is that as good a price as I think it is?

    Only if you play it first... and really dig it.
     
  3. I personally tried the Pro V and I quite liked it. I play metal and some punk/funk.

    So at 350$ I would consider it a pretty good deal.

    But the real question is do you think the tone is worth 350$+?

    I suppose part of the question is around resale. If I buy it - love the way it looks - but want to off it, could I break even I wonder.

    Can you compare or describe the tone?

    it's got active electronics and offers a wide range of tones. they're decent for the price. the ones I've played have been quite nice in terms of fit and finish. looking at the basses in your sig, you'd probably be pleasently surprised.

    I just played one yesterday at my local GC. MAN-talk about your gooey warm humbucker tone! I was really digging it playing it through a GK combo amp.
    Even when I brought up the highs on the pre it NEVER got harsh or shrill. It kept that thick low end with some added sparkle.
    Obviously not a bass you'd ever use for slap but wow-I think it would be killer on the Skynyrd and Black Crowes tunes my band plays.
    I just wish I could've tried it standing up with a strap. I know a lot of people complain about neckdive and the reach to the first few frets when its on a strap. But I sure as heck enjoyed the tone!
