Hello all

New member from Indiana. I'm a guitarist who dabbles in bass. I just picked up a new Epi EB-3 and Fender Rumble 75. I've always loved the look of the EB but prefer the long scale and price of the Epi. I've ownd nice bass equipment in the past but unfortunately it just collected dust so I went the inexpensive route! I plan on sticking with it this time.

I'm going to upgrade the EB-3 with a Hipshot SuperTone bridge next week. Tuners possibly if I can find the correct parts and pups later. Possibly effects soon too.
Thump, thump.

I've been a guitar guy for 30+ years. I set my bass up nicely (I think - I'm a guitarist - gotta have LOW action) but I know she will flat out rock with some mods.

Hey! Cybersnyder here from Maryland. Just saw a limited edition BABP G&L L1K and realized that you guys must really be true Bad Ass Bass Players. Looking forward to participating in the forum and hopefully giving back more than I soak up.
