I've been saving money for a new bass, something a bit more professional than a squire p-bass. I've come across two basses that are affordable and ,as heard from various sources, of good quality. These two basses are both epiphones, the EB-3 and the Explorer Bass. So, if you'd like to help out. Give me some info that they don't tell you in the Ads. And please, unless you can think of a bass that's utterly fantastic for around $500, just keep it to these two basses. I've already narrowed it down exclusivly.
