While walking around here in Yokosuka, Japan, I came across a music/guitar store so I looked in the window and there it was: an Epiphone Viola bass sunburst, for sale. Since I am an avid Beatles fan, I got the bug to get a viola style bass for my collection. I researched Epiphone and Hofner and I now seek the wisdom of our bass community on pros, cons and experience with either of the brands or something else. I’m looking at less than $500.00 budget.
I figure if I get the bass and a Beatle wig I’ll be playing like Sir Paul in no time.
