General What is your overall opinion of this product? Rich Gibson tones from a 34" scale bass. It came set up perfectly right out of the box. The "faded cherry" is beautiful to look at and the finish is flawless. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? I also own an SG Bass (and years ago I had an origin al EB3). The ES 335 Bass is superior in every way. I love my Fender jazz but this Gibson ES 335 is much more versatile. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It's not a light guitar. Slightly heavy in the neck. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The neck pick up is rich and mellow - if you dial back the tone it can be "boomy". The bridge pickup is surprisingly bright - kind of like a 6 string ES 335 but lower range, of course. Playability How was the action out of the box? It was perfectly intonated and action set for easy play with no buzzing.
Best bass I've ever played!

General What is your overall opinion of this product? great,will probably buy a 6 string to match Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? very happy w/ the quality. if you want bass, this is your axe. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? theres nothing about it other than the set-up that I don't like. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? all of the above,it's a Gibson.everything I expected w/ great bass sound.Gibson controls,what you see is what you get. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? tone is great,dark and smooth work for me. mellow p.u's.probably not for everyone but just right if you a country or blues player.love my Fender's but this is a great change of pace w/ true bass sound Finish How did the stain or paint job look? excellent.hard to beat a beautiful sunburst.one of the best cases I've ever got w/ a guitar Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? no complaints.I'm a Fender guy but always wanted a hollow body bass.cost is about the same as an Amer.P/J Playability How was the action out of the box? set up wasn't great.could use a little better set up,string hgt.needed adj. for my taste action was a little high but some may be ok w/ that.easily adjustable tho.
