I'm thinking of buying a Dipinto Belvedere standard. They're really hard to find in the UK, and the only one I can find is in another city, so I can't try before I buy. I'm in a covers band, I need something versatile, that can do trebly punk, to booming rock. Does the Belvedere play as good as it looks? Are they popular in the US? There's one thread on the forum about this bass, but the guy didn;t keep his for long, so there's not much indication of how they sound and play. Currently have an epiphone eb3 which would this would hopefully replace.
