General What is your overall opinion of this product? Exceptional quality, tone, and playability. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Gibson pays attention to the smallest of details. New pickups are first rate. Works for rock, blues, but more importantly for new country. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? Being able to go single coil or humbucking is the best feature. The pickups are a close second. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? A very slight neck dip, unless you are using a wide strap. Controls are very accessible and the neck feels so good. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Very smooth tone with usable lows and highs. This bass can do it all. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Not what I expected, but I'm really beginning to like the finish. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Great value for the price. I'll never go back to Fxxxxx or Ixxxxx. Playability How was the action out of the box? Action was a little high out of the box, but an easy fix. The bridge is fantastic.
Great BAss
