What is your overall opinion of this product?
So, first, I ordered the $299 non pro version. I owned a goth in the past, it was a fully capable and well made guitar. So, when I decided to get back into gigging as a bassist, I of course bought another epi, but the more traditional looking one. Always I use AMS. Next day delivery, ease of interaction...bass comes, along w a new Hartke Hydrive 150 amp, also going back....bass neck pickup not functioning. Other than that, it's perfect. ;( and the amp is rippled all across the tolex, looks beat to death. I managed to find a nearly new SWR combo on eBay, so I decided to take the savings and get the pro IV active. It comes, next day, beautiful looking axe. Sure, the final product has a few rough spots, but it's $500, and just looks great. Plug it in, nothing. Check battery, fine, amp and cable, fine. Tap the front of bass, snap crackle and pop, then sound. Which continues to cut out until the bass is punched in the back. Seriously. This is ridiculous.
