This was my very first bass. The bass was a very cool looking wood tone and was very good looking. I bought the bass and realized it looked even better in person. It was an incredible value and is good for beginners. I now have evolved into a very good bassist and think that this bass is very good except that it buzzes on a few frets. It also has a muddy deep end if dropped to a "C". It is also a chick magnet.
Color in real life is dramatically different than online photo. Picture shows a matte finish with lots of woodgrain, bass that arrived had a high glosss finish so dark that barely any woodgrain is visible. It just looks dark brown.It's also heavier than I expected but the balance and feel is pretty good. Decent bass for the money, good feel, fair build quality (made in China)
This looks feels and plays like a much more expensive instrument. Great finish, solid feel, quality components for the price. It has Great tone and action. I don't think you can go wrong for twice this price.
This is a really nice beginner bass. This was my first bass and is really a good value for the money. It has a few minor flaws like buzzing on a few frets but other than that it is perfect. It has killer looks in real person and is an absolute chick magnet.
Wow. People call this a starter instrument. Let me tell you that it isn't.Let me start with how the bass feels. It has a slimmer neck with a fast feel to it. With 24 frets and a 34'' scale, there is way more room for soloing.The pickups are great to. They have a high output, allowing me to turn my amp down. They are comfortable to anchor your thumb on to, if you play like that. The bass itself sounds great. The low and mids have almost a thunder to them. The highs are crystal clear. Just take a look at this thing too... beautiful.
Im sure this bass is great but why is the walnut color an extently higher price than the other colors of this bass.
I bought this bass about a week ago and used it last weekend for a gig. Hands down this is one bad bass. I've been playing for over 20 years and always had to set up my other basses before I could play em. This was ready to go right out of the box. The action is perfect. The neck is nice, wide, and fast. The sound is a perfect blend of smooth when I played with my fingers and punch when I slapped or played with a pic. This bass is perfect and I am proud to own one. Hands down the best bass in my arsenal. This bad boy is heavy compared to my other basses but the sound that I get more than makes up for it. STOP WASTING TIME BY READING REVIEWS AND TRYING TO DECIDE!!! BY ONE NOW!!!!
Epiphone is not the best brand out there, but the Embassy Standard IV is certainly a great choice for beginners. It's 24 fret, 34" scale neck plays well for the price, and is strong too. It's features (two volume knobs and one tone knob) are average. The tone knob is VERY sensitive and is versatile. You can get a VERY trebly sound out of the bridge pickup alone, with the tone on 10, or, with the neck pickup alone and tone on 0, a nice smooth bass sound. Its not-to-heavy swamp ash body give it a nice balance and it's two humbucker pickups give good enough response through the right amp. I have an Orange Crush 35B Combo, and the amp has a midrangey tone to it, but the Embassy sounds good through it. Through my teacher's Yorkville XM200C Combo, it sounds GREAT for this price class. All in all, the Embassy is GREAT for the price, and any beginner considering an upgrade should try this one out. (btw, my choices for an upgrade after college would be the Epiphone Thunderbird and EB-3. I'd buy both!)
This is a GREAT bass. It is worth twice the price. I have a Precision Bass and this baby smokes it. Tone, feel, playability, looks, the Epi has it all. It was set up perfect right out of the box.You can't go wrong for the money.
