    I own the Epi V bass and used to own the Epi EB-3. The V is short-scale, balances well, and has a good tone(personal preference of course). The EB-3 sounded good too but had HORRIBLE neck-dive. The problem stems from mounting a full-scale neck on a body designed for a short-scale. It was impossible to deal with. I have since replaced the EB-3 with an Epi EB-O and am very happy with it, tone is not quite as good but plays much better.
