The perfect storm of eye-catching style and incredible tone.
Blasted back to the bare essentials, the Gibson BFG Bass is the Les Paul for bassists who want it loud, raw, and wild. Two volumes and two-tone knobs control the sonic spectrum put out by a trio of Gibson T-bird+ humbucking pickups. The BFG bass guitar has no binding, no figured top, and no finishing touches. This gives the Gibson BFG a distinctive look that is both modern and vintage, while allowing for a price that makes pure Les Paul performance available to all players. This unique electric bass guitar is destined to be a classic.

Got it 2nd week of may 2010. The bass rocks more than any other I've owned or played. It just has it all in one package, the sound, the feel, the look, the smell, and it grows on you in a very strange way, unlike any other bass I've owned. The sound is just thunderous on the lows and bright and clear on the highs, with very pronounced mids. There are 3 volume knobs (1 for each pup), and 1 master tone knob. Action is fairly low, enough to play taps comfortably. Flatwouns and groundwounds bring out the true lows, while the rounds give it a crisper grunty sound, either string type will sound good on this beast. circuitry is passive and super loud, will top most active basses in volume competition, not sure about the modern 18 volt basses, but it sure smacks my '91 MM Stingray in the face when it comes to sound and volume. So if you can still find one of these, get it, they're very scarce from what I see as I can't really find any info or reviews on this bass anywhere.
