I have the root beer w/gold hardware. I have been a Fender player for years and still own a 68 Jazz, 80 P Special, Am deluxe P, and a Marcus Miller besides a Warwick FNA Jazzman, a Tobias Growler,& Gibson EB-3.The 80 P and the Am P Deluxe were my #1's (switch off). I got this beautiful Gibson and used it at a job and it blew away my other basses.I am very surprised that people would rather buy a Mexican Fender signiture bass and over look this little known American Gibson bass.
I own the "Guitar of the Week - #7" version but the only difference is the color. My first impression of this bass was that it is much lighter than the Gibson Thunderbird basses but can still produce that Gibson "growl". It was pretty much ready to go right out of the box. I did have to do a slight setup on a couple of strings but nothing out of the usual. The tone is pretty solid but some may find it a little harsh for Country or Jazz but I personaly feel that is what makes it stand out from the rest. The construction is typical Gibson, solid and beautiful but also not affraid to getting dirty. The only problem that I've found is I would like to see a little more variation in the electronics. 2 volume and 1 tone control just dosen't seem to let this bass run all out. Maybe Gibson could offer us a bass with active electronics in the future.
I got my Gibson Les Paul Double-Cut 4-String bass last week; the workmanship was very disappointing to say the least, this bass is American made. First the intonation was out 10-15 cents along with two bridge blocks turned backwards. To set the intonation you must loosen the strings because the block set screw is under the string I called Gibson customer service to see if there was a better way to set the intonation that I didn?t know about, they told me to call the repair shop, they did not return my call. Screws were stripped the neck relief was a mess the finish around neck to body was very poor. I?ve craved a Gibson for many years but now I thank I will stick to other brands.
