Mini-humbucking pickups in the neck and middle position deliver a warm tone. Gold hardware.

many talk about expensive basses worth over 2000 or 3000 bucks. and sometines we are selfish to accept the fact that a bass worth 500 bucks liek this one may sound better or the same like our expensive ones. it is tiem to revise our point of view regarding "cheap" instruments. this bass is what it says it is: A BASS that delivers huge lows and mids and discreet highs. of course it addresses to rock abd blues fans. playability? yes the best, light weight the looks? yes a beauty sound ? rock blues and motown fans will love it it sounds like classic precisions and JB of the sixties only more aggressive and punchy. for me that i am a Mule fan Allen woody's fan and a rocker this bass is the perfect combination of collectible item, tribute item and a super instrument to play with GET ONE NOW and i mean it!!!

I ordered through GC.com. This bass was a huge disapointment. The laquer finish was thick on some spots, and thin on others. It also looks like the red body stain bled through to the cream binding, making it look sloppy, The dark fingerboard stain bled through to the lighter neck finish also. The binding itself was cut with something blunt, so it did not match up on the ends, leaving it raised off of the body. I tried playing it, to see if maybe it was an ugly guitar that played great, but no such luck. It needed a professional setup, as it would not hold tune for longer than 5 minutes, and intonation and neck were way off. I'm not sure if someone had a bad day at the shop, or if all of these are like this, but I have lost all respect for epiphone if this is how they let things leave the factory. These flaws were all easily visible to the naked eye from far away.

    Comments about Epiphone Allen Woody Limited Edition Bass:

    I play at church mostly. I have arthritic fingers so the scale is perfect for my disability. I experienced a small amount of fret buss so I adjusted the bridge which is a normal set up procedure. I ordered a set of flat wound strings for it.

      Stop thinking about it... Buy it!

      By Nick Ewing

      from El Cajon, CA

      Comments about Epiphone Allen Woody Limited Edition Bass:

      I was deciding between this bass, the sg bass and the les paul bass. The list price suggested that this bass was a better "deal" for the money and boy was I right. This bass is awesome. It's quality built, sounds amazing and gets loads of compliments. I switched from guitar to bass and wish this was the first bass I would have purchased. Incredible tone, deep rich full sound and ability to be played like a guitar. Love it and will play it proudly. If you're thinking about it, stop... click add to cart. You won't be sorry. -Nick

      Now I'm happy

      By Joseph Petrino

      from New York, NY

      Comments about Epiphone Allen Woody Limited Edition Bass:

      I really wanted to buy the Gibson LP jr. but just couldn't justify that price in this economy so I bought the Rumblekat as a way keep me happy until I had the money to get the Gibson. I don't think I'll ever buy the Gibson. The Rumblekat sounds better in my opinion. She has a deep tone that I guess the chambered body gives her. The humbuckers are smooth as silk. The finish is very pretty and the neck is effortless to play. When I held her in my arms I knew I had found the one. All the positive comments here and on other sites are absolutely correct, this bass is a steal at this price. Let me point out two negatives however. 1) The intonation setup from the factory is way off (on mine) so I had to spend time getting that right. 2) You will need a good 4" strap because she is balanced towards the neck and you'll be fighting that otherwise. The added bonus is that your really getting the Gibson vibe at a fraction of the price. Thank you Epiphone, good job.

      Great Bass!

      By WKFlyer

      from Merrilliville, IN

      Comments about Epiphone Allen Woody Limited Edition Bass:

      Plays great! Set-up from Gibson was ready right out of the box (after a quick tune). The "made in China" quality is good for the money. A few plastic shavings still attached to the nut, and a few fret chamfers needed minor filing, and the rosewood thins out ever so slightly at the binding near string #1 (G) from frets 1 thru 3, but I'm knit-picking at this point. I'll see how it holds up. Overall it's beautiful to look at and it really does have gorgeous tone. I find it to sound great with fingers or pick. If you play fingers just volume-up the amp a bit, and add a little treble, if that's your liking. Nice bass!

      Beautiful Bass

      By Ray DiLorenzo

      from Nevada City, CA

      Comments about Epiphone Allen Woody Limited Edition Bass:

      I am mainly a guitar player, but I purchased this bass because it was so easy to play and had a beautiful finish. I have owned it for about a year and have had a lot of fun with it. Nice warm tone for blues or jazz. Sounds the way a bass should sound. Excellent bass for the money. Very light and easy to hold. Get the Epiphone case with it. They sell a good case for the money.

      Secret Weapon

      Comments about Epiphone Allen Woody Limited Edition Bass:

      Its gaudy looks have little bearing on its KILLER sound. With a set of flatwounds in the studio, a 'secret weapon' for sure...

      Best Ever

      By Cathy Davis

      from Cedarbluff, Ms

      Comments about Epiphone Allen Woody Limited Edition Bass:

      I have wanted this guitar for about five years. And now that I own one it is all I was expecting. Being a female bass player I of course love the style, color and gold hardware. But above that, the playability of this guitar is so easy and the weight is just perfect for me. I recommend this guitar to anyone interested in a change from the norm.
