    Jumped on one of these when Sweetwater had them in stock and it just showed up today. Fit and finish are great. The cherry color really pops in person. I can ever so slightly feel a few of the fret edges on the bass side on the neck. No big deal. Balances well. Pickups sound big and full finger style but they really seemed to shine the few minutes I had to play it with a pick. I would absolutely love it if it was a short scale, but I'm honestly digging it pretty hard as is. Merry early Xmas to me. IMG_0259.JPG

    Great looking bass! I am saving for one of these as well. Thinking of a Dark Cherry, to go with my Burgundyglo Rickenbacker bass. Cool!

    I really miss my original 67 Embassy. Most of the reviews of these seem to be positive,so i am seriously considering getting one. (Antique ivory would be a great match for my ‘74 4000.)

    I have a 60s Olympic Guitar. Always loved these shapes

    It would be nice if this had the batwing headstock, but that might make the balance pretty bad

    Does the Epiphone Embassy come in a hard shell case? Or is that purchased separately?
