Gibson

A bass monster for one of modern rock’s most distinctive players.

The Krist Novoselic Signature RD Bass begins with a body and glued-in neck of solid maple, a tonewood known for its ability to add punch, clarity and sustain to the sound of any guitar. It is shaped in the image of the RD guitars and basses first introduced by Gibson USA in the 1970s, with a rounded, offset body style reminiscent of the iconic Gibson Firebird guitar and Thunderbird bass. The sustain and thundering resonance of the Krist Novoselic Signature RD Bass are further enhanced by a strings-through-body design with solid three-point bridge, and a gently back-angled headstock to maintain optimum string pressure in the PLEK-cut slots of a Corian nut. Meanwhile, formidable Grover™ "Shamrock-key" tuners keep your pitch tight and true, however hard you hit it. The comfortably rounded neck profile with a depth of .860" at the 1st fret and .960" at the 12th is paired with an exotic obeche fingerboard with 20 frets and a 12-inch radius, all crafted to enhance a playing experience that is every bit the equal of the superior tone and construction of this outstanding bass.

To optimize the power, punch and clarity of the Krist Novoselic Signature RD Bass' natural resonance and sustain, Gibson USA uses a pair of Seymour Duncan™ Bass Lines STK-J2n and STK-J2b "Hot Stack" pickups. Designed to offer the precision and harmonic richness of single-coil pickups, with the noise-canceling properties of humbuckers, these Seymour Duncans provide unparalleled tones and impressive versatility. An independent volume control for each enables you to dial in your preferred balance of bridge and neck pickup for any playing situation, while a master tone control allows fine-tuning of your instrument's voice. Add it all up, and the Krist Novoselic Signature RD Bass is a total monster of versatility and performance for today's master of the low-end.
