Gibson 2015 SG Standard Electric Bass

To create this sweet-sounding 4-string, Gibson stretched the iconic SG shape into a 30.5" scale axe. The result is the 2015 Gibson SG Standard Bass -- an effortlessly playable short-scale bass that delivers full tone thanks to its T-Bird Plus and vintage-style T-Bird Mini pickups.

Gibson USA is dedicated to creating the ultimate playing experience through innovation and continuous improvement. From the very beginning, Orville Gibson was committed to this ideal. His vision has been carried on by a number of passionate, creative designers, luthiers and master craftsmen -- from Lloyd Loar to Les Paul -- to today.

It is in this spirit that Gibson USA has established the business practice of introducing a new model line every year in the fall. Every new Model Year is the culmination of research on how Gibson can make the most advanced guitars.

Gibson USA matches the rarest and finest woods to every guitar. This selection system provides an accurate specification for each guitar's top, back, body carving, and fingerboard, giving you the confidence of knowing exactly what woods Gibson luthiers chose when crafting your new guitar.

Master luthier Jim DeCola speaks about Gibson's history and their 2015 models:

- Full Contact Bridge: Easier adjustment and increased sustain
- Comprehensive wood selection and grading: Rarest and finest materials for best instruments
- Thicker Rosewood Fingerboard: Increased mass for sustain

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "GIbson 2015 SG Bass"
Overall: I bought this bass last week as I was in the market and was wanting something different from my Fenders. This is my first GIbson I have ever owned and it certainly won't be my last. I was very skeptical about the short scale but the thick fingerboard and neck fit my left hand and my picking technique really well! The 30.5" scale gives this bass much play-ability and the neck is really quick. (I'm 6' with average/large hands and the 30.5 still feels great) You can get the action REALLY low without any buzz. My neck is almost totally straight and every note comes through very well. The electronics are sturdy and the pickups sound fantastic. You can get a good range of sound with the TBird plus and mini. This is the only bass I've heard that can come close to the deep low that my PBass produces. Using the treble pickup, you can get a nice smooth 'honky' sound. Playing high notes sound fantastic as you can go from a smooth, deep sound, all the way to a punchy, hard hitting sound. I've also noticed that the truss rod is very sturdy and doesn't easily bow back in. The turning ratio is also much higher than other truss rods so you can get a more precise bed/bow in the neck. The bass is very lightweight. I noticed the neck-dive (like any other SG model) but I easily fixed it with a nice suede strap. The finish looks amazing and the cosmetic features are better than any other instrument I've ever owned. This is now become my main bass alongside my 50's Pbass. I highly recommend this to any bass player that covers a wide genre of tunes and has the bread to spend on a quality, well detailed bass. Cheers :)

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent Bass, Better price!"
Overall: I just received my SG Bass, I ordered a "Blemished" for just a little over 1k. What a beauty! Set up is near perfect out of the case. I inspected this bass very closely and cannot find a single flaw, The only thing I could find that I think it may have been returned for is a slight bend in the aluminum frame of the awesome Gibson flight case it comes in. I'm pretty sure I can bend it right back in place with a rubber mallet. All the latches still function and case still works as it should even with the bend. So, I just got a brand new Gibson SG bass for about 1k and it sounds and plays as sweet as it looks! Love the short scale! Being a guitar player first, Playing this SG Bass is so much easier than just about every other bass I have tried. The neck dive people complain about does not affect me, I use a 3 inch wide suede strap and it keeps it from moving at all. Also, Most of the time I am using it to record so I'm sitting down. Very comfy when seated! Thank you zZounds for a great deal on a super instrument
