    I hope that's not an emergency exit, cause you're not getting through THAT wall of sound.

    Thats the 34". They made very few short scale EB3s and you can tell them from the long scale because they have a tug bar and dots rather than trapezoid inlays.

    That's beautiful.
    I still want an EB-3. It's not at the tip top of my GAS list, but it's close. Gotta love the full scale length and inlays.
    Congrats :thumbsup:

    I had a chance to play the bass for a while now.
    First: The original wound rounds had to go. I put a set of D'Addario Chrome XL flatwounds on it (regular light gauge). Huge positive difference in playability and sound. They are staying.
    Second: I adjusted the trust rod to eliminate some fret buzz. It was pretty simple to do.
    Third: The neck on this bass plays great. I use a wide cloth strap, so neck dive isn't really an issue.
    Fourth: I like the stock pickups. Usually both on. Sometimes both full up or backed down a little on the neck pickup. It depends on what I'm playing.
    Fifth: The tuners are just fair. Those are the weak point of the bass, but are usable. I will change those at some point.
    Sixth: Overall, I'm very pleased with the look, feel, fit and finish, and sound of this bass, Worth the $400 USD that I paid for it new. :thumbsup:
