I am new to bass guitar playing, and currently my GSR-200 has a serious defect with its output jack, so this weekend i am going to get a better bass. I am wondering the the epiphone les paul special bass is a very good choice. I've allways liked the looks of the les pauls, and the epiphone special is right in my price range. If any of you have used this guitar any imput about it would be appreciated, esspecially since i may have to have guitar center custom order it for me, and i dont want to go through all that trouble if the bass is just going to suck. Thanks in advance.
