As I was jamming on the used Epi T-Bird I just picked up a few days ago for what I think was a fair shake(gave it a full set up today 1st chance I had) I thought to stop and create a thread. What's up with the resale on these being so poor!?!? Its one of the best feeling and sounding basses I've played. I havent played anything in the 3 to 5k range. I dont touch what I'm not willing to pay for. I can stay that this thing sounds amazing through my genz streamliner. Its not the sound or craftsmanship. The Indonesians obviously have learned how to build a guitar. So whats going on with the t-bird? Is it the styling that's turning people off currently?
