    Does anyone here know where I can find a Gibson Ripper bass for sale online?

    I love the look of the thing!

    Here is something to consider, I liked the looks of the Ripper that I found in a local store, but after playing it I found the super thick neck was bothersome and the sound wasn't what I expected. I play a Warwick so I like a thick neck, but that thing was extremely thick.

    So instead of gasing over the looks, you might want to find one to test out before purchasing online.

    Just my advice.

    I've heard they had thick necks, but in general I prefer a thicker neck myself. I seem to get clumsier on the bass if the neck is too thin :eyebrow:

    That is a good thing if you are considering a Ripper. It was like if the neck from my Corvette (very thick by most peoples standards) had Pbass spacing at the nut.

    Gbase.com would be a good place to start.


    Good luck finding one.
