The Epiphone El Capitan IV Acoustic Electric Bass should be a part of EVERY Bass Players arsenal. The great thing about the Acoustic Electric bass is that you can practice without an amp. Work on your tone acoustically then plug you bass into an amp. You will experience the fat, punchy tone that every player desires. The best of both the electrical and acoustical worlds come together in these basses from Epiphone. The El Capitan has a bound Maple body, 34 inch scale set Maple neck with a bound rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays and chrome hardware. The versatile Epiphonic-six pickups provide tone every bit as good, if not better than the bass on its own! This instrument will cover Rock, Bluegrass, Jazz, Polka, you name it!
