My Epiphone El Capitan for a Washburn T24

    I offered my Epiphone El Capitan acoustic/electric bass for trade on an online classifieds site and someone offered me their Washburn T24 electric bass.

    I've never tried one before but we are meeting soon and I will get to try it on my own amp.

    I just want to know if anyone thinks I am getting a good trade from this, assuming that both of our basses are in great shape.

    I know the common Washburn T24 is also known as a "Taurus" but I don't think the one this man has is one.

    I did like Epiphone but it's so difficult for it not to shriek from feedback, likely from soundhole. Tried getting one of those things to stick in soundhole to avoid that but nothing I've found fits since it's a weird-shaped hole. I also like using distortion/fuzz on bass and it sounds bad on the Epiphone.

    Hope what I'm saying makes enough sense for you guys to understand. Thanks.

    Some years ago I traded my El Cap for an old Kramer DMZ PJ. Was much happier after the trade, didn't care much for the Epi. Sorry, not much help to you.
