Gibson SG Standard Electric Bass (with Case)

Gibson takes their most devilish design to the lowest depths with the thunderous SG Bass. A pair of calibrated SG bass pickups produce smooth, deep tone.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Mahogany body Rich, warm, focused sound; added sustain
Mahogany neck Great sustain, strength, and warm tone
Nitrocellulose lacquer finish Ultra-thin, strong gloss; preserves natural tone
Rosewood fretboard Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel

The SG Bass has the legendary looks, sound and feel which made it one of Gibson's most iconic basses. The short scale length is actually a big part of this sound! While the short scale length of the SG Bass is preferred by smaller players, it's also preferred by many for the strong fundamental tone for which this short scale bass is known. As expected, the solid mahogany body has deeply sculpted scarfing and the rounded profile mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard feels familiar and comfortable. A pair of calibrated SG bass pickups (neck and bridge) with individual volume and master tone controls add further tonal possibilities.

I love it! It's relatively light, smells like cotton candy at a carnival, it's aesthetically beautiful, has uniformly OUTSTANDING tone the entire length of its downscaled neck (which full scale basses don't have). It comes perfectly set up upon arrival and plays like a dream and is relatively affordable when considering the fact that it's a very, very high end instrument. Sorry, no idea of manufacturer's support.
