I'm seriously looking at these .
That's a pretty sharp looking bass.
I love Jr and Special double cut guitars, but this is a hard pass.
Typical Gibson bass design...for and by guitar players.
Slap a longer neck on a guitar body. With a garbage bridge.
I don't like Gibson basses at all usually, always hated the muddy, farty tone. This one has useable tones though IMO thanks to the coil split. At $1k, its overpriced IMO, especially after seeing it pulled apart. I would be a lot more interested at $799, which is what the new single pickup Junior guitar sells for. Would be an instant buy if Epiphone put one out for $399.
Meh. There are countless other bass models in that price range that have more impressive quality, features, and tone. Next....
I dig it. Would be a good companion to my Jack Casady.
I think it's pretty cool.
I like it!
You're telling me Gibson makes basses. Weird.
Actually, I saw a photo of a blue one and thought, "I could see myself playing that."
Definitely a step in the right direction. Looks good, sounds good and the price is right.
Can't think of another USA-made bass for that price.
Let's face it. We live in a world where some people happily pay more for MIM Fenders yet others think Fender's crazy for charging $1,000 plus for one.
The thing is, Gibson basses get put down more than any other bass, but now they have what looks like a winner. We're not talking about $2,000 plus for a Thunderbird. We're talking about one of the better-priced Gibsons I can think of.
until we each get quality time with one of these there's no telling what the verdict is on such a new SS bass which is rather different from what we're used to, this is going to be an individual call like we rarely see and I find that intriguing and welcome. it seems to favor the mids and lows, even tapped, which I like and if it can dip into EB-1 territory that's a big plus in my book, and the video hints that it can. it would need to rise to the level of a must-have for me to pony up even $500 but if there are modifications that can take it further then it would be harder to resist. this is the bass of the year to me just for the hope factor alone, and I hope to find one I can easily afford lol now, I wonder what Jack Bruce would say...
How nice it is to see a competent review with, like, actual information in it. Kudos to the reviewer.
Lol this guy is soooo not a bass player. Fun video though, I like that he never shows his face, just his voice (which sounds a lot like Mr. Rogers) and the bass.
So much hate
I like it*
Edit: *The bass, not the hate. Though that's fine. I hate stuff too
I like mine this far.
Actually price wise compared to a new Serek or a Rock n Roll Relics Thunders bass its very reasonable.
He's barely a guitar player. I'm pretty sure he's never had a real gig.
He's a professional flipper and huge Gibson fan. Neither of which is a bad thing. He buys tons of guitars, cleans them up, shoots good pics, then resells. Sometimes he hires a decent guitar player to play the demos.
