Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Electric Bass:

I've read a lot of reviews knocking the craftsmanship of Gibson guitars/basses over the past few years. After receiving this bass I must say that I disagree with those reviews. This is the high quality instrument I am accustomed to from Gibson (I also own a Gibson Explorer from 2005). The tone of this bass is really amazing...It has a big/classic sound. The only issue I have is that there was a bit of a fret buzz in the top few frets. That is easily fixed with a little adjusting. Otherwise the setup was great...The intonation was perfect and the action is really low to allow for a good feel and ease in play.

Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Electric Bass:

Overall I like this bass. The fit and finish is very well done except for one thing and that is the Grover tuners were installed crooked. Not sure how this got passed quality control and it really doesn't affect the playing or playability but it does seem odd to look at. Also, not sure what the deal with the "Plek" system is because most of the Gibsons' I have recently purchased new badly need to be set up including this bass. The action was very high. I thought the "Plek" system was to dial in nut height and fret height to improve playability and action?? But other than those two issues the bass is well built, finish is applied superbly and sounds very nice. If not for those two small issues I would have given this bass a five star rating.
