Up for sale, a 2014 Gibson SG Standard Bass in showroom-clean, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and hangtags. Essentially a reissue of Gibson's EB-3 model, this SG bass features solid mahogany body and neck construction with a slab rosewood fingerboard, yielding a rich and resonant natural acoustic tone. The pickup complement includes a vintage-style TB Plus humbucker and TB mini humbucker. Both pickups are wax-potted and capture the classic tonal attributes of Gibson's '60s EB models. The TB plus humbucker in the neck is a traditional hum-cancelling bass pickup with a full frequency, bottom-heavy sound. The mini humbucker in the bridge position packs a sweet punch with exceptional midrange presence, accentuated by a fresh set of 45-100 roundwound strings. The bass weighs 7lbs 13oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with comfortable action and accurate intonation.
The one-piece mahogany neck has a round, chunky C-shaped profile carve with generous shoulder, measuring .870" deep at the 1st fret and .915" at the 12th. The rosewood fretboard features pearl trapezoid inlay with a 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret. The medium jumbo frets show virtually no wear, playing effortlessly up the 30 1/2" scale with a straight neck and responsive, optimally adjusted truss rod. The nut measures 1 5/8" in width, and the headstock is fitted with original chrome-plated Grover tuners that turn smoothly with large clover buttons.
The electronics function as intended, with individual Volume knobs for each pickup and a Master Tone control. The nickel-plated hardware is bright and clean, and the plastic parts are equally pristine, with the clear protective factory film still intact over the multi-ply pickguard. Not to be confused with lesser iterations of the SG Bass, this instrument features a gloss nitro lacquer Cherry finish. There's barely a scratch on the body, and the gloss on the neck profile is nigh flawless.
The original brown tolex Gibson USA hardshell case is included, along with all hangtags and factory paperwork.
