It?s a good thing that Epiphone has kept making this iconic bass. It?s a great rock n roll machine. It?s also really long. Longer than other Tbirds because the headstock is massive. My only complaint is that the screws on the pickup covers are ragged and sharp. So sharp that they are tearing up my fingers. It?s uncomfortable to play. Gibson says they are sending me new screws, but it?s been a month and a half and I haven?t seen anything. It looses serious marks for this.
