Shortscale electric bass with Gibson pickups and passive electronics, case included

The Gibson SG Standard Bass Cherry follows the tradition of the most iconic Gibson bass and convinces with its authentic design, smooth playing characteristics and massive Vintage sounds. Based on the legendary doublecut design of the Gibson SG, the four-string has a mahogany body and a glued mahogany neck in a not too strong “rounded” profile, whereby the 30.5″ short scale not only allows comfortable grasping of the tones, but also supports a fat sound with emphasis on the bass foundation. On the bass amp, the powerful Gibson Rhythm SG bass pickup on the neck delivers an extremely fat sound, whose massive low end pushes every note into the pit of the stomach. In contrast, the Gibson Lead SG Bass Minihumbucker placed on the bridge delivers a wiry cultivated tone with high assertiveness. The pickups are managed classically by means of a passive circuit consisting of two volume potentiometers and a general treble diaphragm. Last but not least, the Gibson SG Standard Bass Cherry is equipped with the traditional Gibson 3-Point Adjustable Bridge and Grover Shamrock bass mechanics.
