"Gibson is back!"

Great playing right out of the box! Not heavy at all. Push Pull volume pot splits the coil and really brings out the mids! I love this bass! I'm a big guy 6'2" 250 and it don't look small when I play it..I have a 4003 Ric, American G&L LB100 , Gibson SG Standard bass, and a few cheaper ones in my collection, but this is the only thing I've played since I got it. Just wish it had a hard Case!

"Good bass with QC issues"

good sound with a little neck dive. Tuning pegs were slightly crooked. Excellent growl. Far superior to a Mustang or other solid short scale under $1000.

"It does what it should"
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The good:• Tone is phenomenal. Growly and loud, yet adjusting hand placement near the neck and bridge bring out a variety of tones and is responsive to light/heavy attack. Absolutely perfect for rock/metal and vicious with a fuzz pedal.• Short scale makes this instrument a must for those with smaller hands or anyone who's coming from guitar and loves scale shapes. It's perfectly balanced (to me) and is enjoyable to play for long periods• The finish could be viewed as poor, but I love it. It's thin and worn to the touch. Wood grain along neck is visible and tactile. I love feeling the grain and the finish does not stick at all. The bad:• The volume knob has very slight play (could be adjusted, but it doesn't bother me or affect tone)• The bridge is garbage. It works, but the screws are super soft and prone to deformation upon adjusting with screwdriver (could have been my fault for not loosening strings enough)• The pickup seems to be screwed in and non- adjustable. Not an issue for me, but I can see how others would not like it.This is a difficult review for me because it does everything I need flawlessly and I love a stripped down and barebones instrument, but although cheap for a USA made guitar, I feel the lack of features and barebones nature make it almost too expensive for what it is.

"Gibson bass"
Overall: 2.5 out of 5 stars

First the bad. Bass should have Never left the factory with razor sharp fret sprout.After sanding down the fret ends a couple times it’s now playable. I also had to lower the action quite a bit for my taste.Now for the Good. This is a great sounding and playing bass. I’ve owned just about every brand of bass made and this is very very close to the top as far as great Tone.

"Gibson Les Paul Junior Tribute DC Bass review."
Overall: 0.5 out of 5 stars

After purchasing this bass, I find it hard to believe that it is Made in the USA.1) Rosewood fretboard? After about a week of use, the fretboard color started to wear off and turn an unattractive gray.2) I removed the bridge with the intent of possibly replacing it. The back of the bridge had a faint cast impression with the name - Epiphone. The name on the mold appeared to have been ground down, though not completely.3) I would even call into question the body wood as being mahogany as advertised.I'm left to believe that Gibson thinks it can put light weight Hipshot tuners on an Epiphone and call it a Gibson.Musician's that care do not think so.I returned the bass.

"Trash"
Overall: 0.5 out of 5 stars

I received a brand new bass and it was over 8.5 pounds instead of 7-7.5 like I was told. The neck feels like a baseball bat like the old Warwick’s from the 80s. One of the tuning pegs was also crooked straight from the Gibson factory. On top of all this the truss rod cover was actually slanted at the top I guess to accommodate the writing on the front of the headstock that says Les Paul tribute bass. Totally horrific quality control from Gibson for $1000 bass. Awful
