I've searched but couldn't really find the answer I quiet looking for. I've been lusting after a Vintage EB-3 and love the tones I can get from one but cant afford one at the moment. I understand the Epiphone is long scale and most the Gibsons are short scale and can attribute to tone but are the pretty close to sounding alike for the most part? Most clips I seen on the Epiphone seem like they can sound pretty similar but a lot of the clips are really poor quality or beginners. Anybody with experience with both would be greatly appreciated.
