    Has anyone had any experience with the Epiphone T-bird bass? The one that has the upside down neck and the P-bass J-bass pu configuration. I'm considering getting one as a backup, (I play american made P-bass as my main electric bass) but I always liked T-birds. I don't have the cash for a gibson at the moment though. I've seen a couple of these Epiphone one's fairly cheap. I imagine they're made in Korea or somewhere but how well are they put together? How's the wood, neck, etc? I'm interested in this P-bass J-bass pu configuration because I have an extra bass line 1/4 pounder P-bass pick-up and a kent amrstrong J-bass that I can install. So I'm not so worried about how they sound as to how well they are made and feel.
