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!
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
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.
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 at...it 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.
