Epiphone Viola Bass Gets Some TLC

Rock star Chris dropped off this awesome Epiphone Viola “Beatle Bass” that needed a set-up.

We cleaned the bass up with Naptha, leveled and polished the frets, and reset the bridge to the appropriate 30.5″ scale.

Chris’ Beatle Bass plays like a dream and sounds like a slice of heaven (or the rumbling pits of hell if you prefer … this short scale wonder has a huge sound).

Check it out on the track below, backing up Fat Matt.
