    Does anyone know if epiphone still offers a flying V bass? I don't see it anywhere on thier website, hoping I won't have to resort to building one...

    How about the sound? I've played the epi eb3, is it like that at all?

    Imagine a Thunderbird with less sustain.

    The one I owned a couple of years ago had the absolutely hottest pickups I've ever experienced in a passive bass. It was a pretty cool bass, actually. I had the hard case, too. Now, why was it I sold it....? :eyebrow: :D

    They're a great live bass but hell in the studio IMO. My guitarist brought one in when we recorded a demo and wanted me to use it. Kept sliding off my leg, sounded like hell in the mix, so I grabbed my trusty old P-bass.
