WOW!!!! Worth every penny!

By This kit is junk!!!!

I had wanted one of these for a long time and I bought the worn brown, it looks better in person than in the picture and the finish on mine is flat with more of a reddish tint than brown. The quality of this bass is fantastic. I've owned Fenders, Schecters and everything in between, nothing plays like a Gibson!


Gibson Faded Les Paul

By Finebass

I recently purchased one of these in worn brown. It came in a nice Gibson hard case and when I opened the case I have to admit that I was a bit underwhelmed. The bass was not stunning to look is brown with a very thin finish. Once I took it out and played it though, I was sold. The neck is very comfortable, closer to a Jazz than a Precision, and the setup was spot on. The bass is a pleasure to play- very easy. The best way to describe the tone is "big". With two tone and two volumes, a variety of tones can be coaxed from the bass...I like them all. I have gigged with it once and it performed beautifuly. I have always been a Fender player but after playing this bass for a while, I will be keeping an eye out for Gibsons in the future. Overall, a great bass and a great value.

This bass blows Fender out of the water! Light weight, Warm tone and plays like butter! I've been playing for 30 years and have owned everything from a Rick, numerous Fenders, Hamer, Epiphones and this thing has them all beat I sold a new American Standard P-bass and a new Sting signature just to buy this and it was well worth it.


Awesome, Thanks Gibson

My Friend Bought one of these for his band with a behringer 450 watt bass combo and it is awesome. The action and sound is great. Slapping, Picking, or Fingerpicking


Not that impressed. . . .

Ask me a question

Maybe its the ceramic pick ups that aren't the old school tone of Alnico that I really dislike. Or maybe its just the fact that coupled with the terrible finish it looks kind of like a generic import. But add that the balance is off and it leaves little to be desired. It's for a good price for American made but a Jazz bass this is not and the only thing good going on for this bass is a nice neck, which Gibson's are known for. I was disappointed all around. I wouldn't use this for any of the styles of music I play. I think the Mexican Fenders play better then this and they are half the price, pay the same and play an American made Fender.
