Epi ebo. I can live without individual string height adjustment. The pickup is muddy but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Good frets. Setup fine after I changed the strings. Reviews on here and most other places online would have you think it's unplayable garbage. I disagree. This wouldn't be my choice if I could only own one bass, but i have no complaints. I wanted the black one. This morning when I called the store, the nincompoop I spoke to said they had it in stock. Turns out he's a big fat liar so I got the red one and they took 50 bucks off for my trouble. Damn fine bass.
