I'm confused and torn.
The Ripper has 2 humbuckers, 3 knobs (volume, midrange rolloff, and treble rolloff), 4 way rotary tone switch, set neck, and can be strung through the body.
The G-3 has 3 single coil pups, 2 knobs, 1 switch, and has a bolt on neck.
I prefer the Ripper.
I can only pass on what I have heard,since I have`nt gotten the chance to play either of these basses.
Most people rave about the Gibson Ripper.It seems to be the most sought after of the three(ripper,g-3,grabber).I`m talking the original Ripper,not the wimpy reissue by Epi.
If you can find one for a decent price I would go for it dude!
yeah i wouldnt dare to get an epi
neither of the two are expensive... there are plenty of pawn shops here!
I have a Gibson G3 and it is one of the most misunderstood and underappreciated basses that Gibson ever made. The G3 has 3 single coil pickups that act like 2 humbucking pickups because the middle coil is RWRP and is always in the circuit, if the middle pickup is lowered as low as possible [mine is attached to the body] it acts as a dummy coil. And it is also a string thru body bass Rippers are cool basses too and I really couldn't say which is better, but I want a Ripper too.
Then get both! I would.
i actually just finished beefing up an old hagstrom i found for next to nothing...
