Rating and Reviews: Midtown Standard Bass

Experience the unique sound of the Gibson Midtown bass. With two humbuckers in an ES-style semi-hollow body, the Midtown sings with punchy, yet warm tone.

Overall: I love to play this bass with my fingers, pick playing sounds kindda tinny though. The mini TB is a little on the weak side and I wish there were separate volume and tone knobs for each p/u. The neck could be a little thinner too. Besides that it's a beauty and give me that old school feel when I play it. Set up out of the box was good and intonation was dead on. My first Gibby and I'm not thrilled but not disappointed either.

Overall: I have owned several Gibson Bass guitars and this Midtown is a typical, well-built smooth sounding instrument. If you can find the quality and precision from another bass for the price, let me know. This bass is excellent for any genre or setting. It is pretty simple, easy to get the sound you want, and built like a tank. Another excellent Gibson guitar.
