So today I woke up at 7 to go to GC because they were offering 15 percent off everything. I went to the bass section and most of them were gone but I saw a EB-0 bass and bought that. When I got home, I noticed the frets were kinda small and so was the neck so i looked it up online and saw that it was meant for smaller people. I really like the look of it but do you think I will be able to play it just like any other bass? Here is the link of what it is:

Yeah it has a pretty short scale length, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's for smaller people. If you like how it feels and sounds, then there should be no problem.
Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.

"Though small and light, the Epiphone EB-0 Bass has huge sound, and full-size people can play it too."

With a guarantee like that, why worry?

I have this bass, and I can guanrantee you it's a good bass, it has a great sound, and imo the smaller frets make it easier to play

I just got a free short scale bass from my local kijiji yesterday. Only thing to remember is that you will need short scale strings when you need to re-string it. Lots of people use short scale basses, especially when recording in the studio. Lets you get a better recording sound and more punchy at lower volumes or something I was reading.

Ok thanks but do the strings break easily on these? Also since I cant afford a bass amp, would a PA speaker work fine for now? It sounds good with my guitar and keyboard.

Don't worry what people say. Jack Bruce, bassist for Cream and one of the best bassists of all time, played Gibson EB-3's for his tenure with Cream. And no one would tell him he looked silly after watching him play.
