Sounds Like a 40-Year Old Bass Right Out Of The Box

By Steve

from Milwaukee, WI

Verified Buyer

Comments about Gibson 2017 EB Bass T:

Having played a Gibson Thunderbird for the last 40 years this bass felt right at home to me. It's light weight and hangs just right on the strap. The neck is longer then a Rickenbacker and Fender, but it's easy to adapt to. This bass has coil-tap switches on the volume controls, which are not mentioned in the features, and that is it's best sound using the pickups in single coil mode. The wood quality is exceptional and the bass has way above average vibration. If your considering buying this bass you should before they raise the price, this is the best sounding bass you can buy new at this price, and it's a Gibson!

Comments about Gibson 2017 EB Bass T:

I bought this for a Christmas gift. I, of course, looked at it and it is beautiful but since I do not play...what can I say? Packaging was wonderful and I was very impressed. I wanted to buy something different and spectacular and this fills the wants for me.
