Generally the bass forum doesnt have high views on epiphone, and after wasting 200 quid on one I dont either. However, this particular bass was the only epiphone I have played and liked. It has a nice sound to it, but slapping is a problem to put it bluntly.....

No, gibson/epiphone dont make very good basses. They basically take their guitars and alter them slightly.

Gibson Grabbers however are very good.

I played and found its tone to be... okay, but the balance of the bass was pretty bad, and in my opinion, the bass is not as good as many others in its price range. I've also heard plenty complaints about epiphone's basses in general. However, you really should try out the bass yourself to see what you think about it.
Just remember...

If you play indie, and want a massive muddy plonk tone, get an Epiphone. If you don't want massive muddy farts coming from your bass, don't get it.

For what you pay for a squier, they're actually relatively nice. They'll last, providing that you treat them right. Go for a Vintage Modified Jazz, if you ask me.
