The other day I was talking to a friend of mine about basses (he plays, too) and mentioned a couple nice Epis that I had seen lately. He mentioned that Epiphones were junk and Squier was a better quality bass. That got me to thinking, is it, really? IMO, which may not count for much, Epiphones seem to be of a very nice quality. I've only played one, an acoustic El Capitan 4 string, but I really like it and thought it was really well made. I don't have much experience with Squiers but I have a Fender J and used to own a P in college. I'd have to say if I was shopping around and had to choose between the two I'd go for an Epiphone. What say you TB? Epiphone or Squier?
