Gibson

A legendary bass that helps usher Gibson into its 120th year of existence.

During the height of Gibson's original "Golden Era," the company's only bass guitar at the time—the EB0—underwent the same radical transformation as the Les Pauls, which were being redesigned as the now classic SG. It was a bold move and it paid off, bringing Gibson basses to the forefront. Today's SG Standard Bass recreates the classic, dual-pickup version, staying true to the design and specs of the original, including the popular 30" scale length.

The 2014 SG Special bass features solid mahogany body, mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard with the extra-special 120th anniversary banner on the 12th fret, max grip speed knobs, extra large strap button, graph tech nut, 30" scale, T-Bird Plus and vintage-style T-Bird mini pickups, grover shamrock-style tuners, satin finish and 3-point adjustable bridge.

Features
  • Angled headstock
  • Adjustable truss rod
  • 30” Scale
  • 20-Fret rosewood fingerboard
  • Unbound Rosewood fingerboard with 120th anniversary banner
  • Nickel and Silver alloy fret wire
  • Trapezoid inlays
  • Set-neck construction
  • Solid mahogany body
  • T-Bird Plus and Vintage-style T-bird mini
  • 3-Way adjustable bridge
  • Satin finish
  • 2 Volume and 1 Tone control
  • Grover shamrock style tuners
  • Vintage brown hardshell case

    Comments about Gibson SG Special 2014 Electric Bass Guitar:

    This bass would have been better if Gibson would change the flaws in it's design. Matte finish cheapens the look and quality.Poor placement of strap button makes bass tilt forward and being neck heavy doesn't help the balance issue. Due to my physical health the edges on the body of the bass aggravate my carpal tunnel when I rest my Wrist/forearm on it so it wasn't comfortable to play. Too bad. I recommend that you find this bass in any store and play it before you order it.

      Great bass and a bargain at this price! It plays well and only needed a little adjustment to get the tone right. Came with a great case too.

        Comments about Gibson SG Special 2014 Electric Bass Guitar:

        Having owned several EB and SG basses over the years, I wanted another though the budget was limited. This bass did not disappoint - same tone, feel etc. of my last SG (a 1 of 1000 beauty). Always amazed at how much the price of an upscale instrument is in the finish - but be aware; the finish of this bass is pretty crude - looks like spray paint - but it plays like a dream. Great working axe. Not a visual work of art. Amazing value.

          Comments about Gibson SG Special 2014 Electric Bass Guitar:

          I went in to by a vintage Gibson EB0 bass and played it and the feel and action was great along with the pricetag. The only problem was there was not a lot of variance in the tone capabilities of the bass. I picked this one up and it was Night and Day! It is a great bass to play. You can get bight to muddy with this thing. The short scale neck makes it super easy to get around and the set up was perfect. The super bonus was the brown leather case with the hot pink fuzzy interior. Super rock and roll man. If you don't have one, GET ONE!!!!!!

          Comments about Gibson SG Special 2014 Electric Bass Guitar:

          I was so excited to receive this guitar but after looking it over was very disappointed. The quality just isn't there for what it cost. It plays well but the sides of the frets are very sharp and the constant rubbing against the frets has made my index finger very sore. The frets will have to be filed and smoothed out before I can play for any length of time.... In the meantime, I'll go back to playing my Ibanez until the Gibson is fixed. Gibson, what has happened to the quality you used to put into your musical instruments??

            This guitar is a dream come true for me. I had a Gibson EB0 back in the 60's and loved it and played in several bands in the Northeast. Without thinking it through, I sold the bass. However, this bass is excellent. Very classy looking and plays like a dream right out of the case. Thanks Gibson.

              Comments about Gibson SG Special 2014 Electric Bass Guitar:

              Just received my own Gibson SG Special Bass from Musicians Friend today and have been happily playing it for the last couple of hours. So far, I am very impressed with it's ease of playing and classic design. I usually use flat wound strings on my basses instead of the supplied round wounds but I think in this case I will just go with the strings that came on it for a while. The bass was set up well and darned near in tune right our of the box. I ordered it online on Monday morning and received it Thursday morning with free shipping from Musicians Friend.

              I particularly like the 2 different humbucker pickups which give you quite a range of tones with each one having it's own volume control along with the master tone knob controlling both. And, I really like the satin (matte) finish on my Cherry version, as well. Plus, the CG Special Bass 2014, while being so much lighter than a standard sized electric bass, is still sturdily built with a solid, one piece mahogany body, Gibson's glued-on short scale mahogany neck, beefy Grover tuning machines, and 3-way adjustable bridge. Mine also came with a nice, plush-lined hard shell Gibson case. Nice!

              In short, I wouldn't call it very fancy, but it is attractive and seems to be a good solid value. I'm looking forward to many years of playing this affordable tone monster from Gibson. BTW, it's made in good ole Nashville, USA, which I really appreciate, too.
