Have any of you checked out that Epi 5 string? <m>

    Looks pretty neat, imho. The clips up on harmony central prove that this is definitely a guitar that oozes that gutsy modern growl. What bass guitars do you think also have that sort of awesome growl?

    Havnt seen one yet or heard the clips at HC but their Casady bass does indeed have an "awesome growl".Good luck!

    The pickups and 5 position switch look indentical to the pickups in the Kramer 522 that Gibson sells through musicyo.com. The Epi LP5 looks really cool, but if the electronics are the same, one can get the Kramer (which sounds and playes really good) for $220. Interesting...
