    I'm shopping for another reliable beater bass since there is a cost of diminishing returns in repairing my Squier P-Bass. My dream bass is a Gibson Ripper, but I'm open to any others... in my quest I have come across this Epiphone bass. . can anybody help me identify it from this bad picture? Thanks.

    Oh man, I should know this... These came in 4, 5, and maybe six-string... Krud, it's on the tip of my tongue, I'm thinking it's numbers rather than a name. I always thought these were OK, even though I never handled one. I'll see if I can figure out what it's called...

    OK, found it. It appears to be an EBM-4.

    Thanks! Wow, doesn't seem to be worth much (I found one for $200). I guess I will keep searching for that Ripper.
