General What is your overall opinion of this product? I love the way it sounds and feels. It's not the prettiest finish ever (worn brown), but it has a charm all its own. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Excellent. I would say this bass mostly fits into the blues/rock category, but it could possibly do other genres. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? It's exactly what I wanted, especially after putting flatwound strings on it. My favorite feature is probably the pickups. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? I love the playability of the short scale. The neck is pretty slim for a bass too, so you can navigate the frets fairly quickly. The controls are easy to get to, but I don't really change settings on the fly like other musicians do. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The tone was bright with the roundwound strings it came with, but I changed the strings to flats and it darkened up to exactly where I wanted it. The neck pickup is full, round, and bassy. The bridge pickup basically just adds presence and clarity. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The worn brown is okay. It just looks kind of like a coffee table. The finish is very thin and flat. It was a little darker than I expected. But the classic SG shape makes up for it. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? The value is great, especially since it comes with a hardshell case, if you don't mind a flat, coffee table finish. You won't find another American-made short-scale bass with a hardshell case for this price. Playability How was the action out of the box? Perfect. The setup was spot-on, I just wanted flatwound strings instead of roundwounds. But the original strings were okay too.
Awesome buy

General What is your overall opinion of this product? The SG Bass is first short scale I've ever played. It's lighter in weight and size but the smaller size doesn't equate to a smaller sound. It's sweet and low just like I wanted. For a female player the size and weight is extra nice. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Gibson quality never disappoints. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? The two humbucker pickups give options in sound that my old bass doesn't offer. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Great width on the neck. Controls are easily accessible while playing. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Tone is Dark is smooth especially at the neck pick up more bright and snappy in the back. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I got the worn cherry finish and it's absolutely beautiful. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? The same bass on the Gibson site was twice what I paid for from American Music Supply. The fact it comes with the Gibson hard case for this price was an awesome deal. I feel like I got more than my money's worth. Playability How was the action out of the box? Haven't adjusted the action at all. I tuned it and it was ready to play.
Absolutley Love It!!

General What is your overall opinion of this product? I love this bass. I have always played a jazz bass and I knew when I bought my next one I wanted something different. I never even considered Gibson for bass, but I kept coming back to this one and I love it. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? The quality it great, I mean it is a Gibson. I play it at my church every week and we do a pretty broad spectrum of music there and I always get the tone I'm looking for. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? This is the first short scale bass I've ever played. I've played jazz bass more often than not. I wanted to get a short scale bass, so obviously I looked at the Mustang, but I really didn't like pickups on it, I didn't think they would do the job. This bass as great tone and awesome sustain. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? I love the tone of this bass. Like I said before we do a pretty broad spectrum at our church from fast, slow to rock songs and I have found a good tone for everything. I can cut back the on the tone and play through the neck pickup and get some real nice lows or if I want to cut through mix the bridge pickup is nice and bright. The options are pretty much unlimited. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I went with the worn ebony which looked great in the pictures and I love the look of it in real life even more. The chrome hardware is a nice contrast to it. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? I got even more than I expected for the price range. Bottom line this is an incredible bass at an incredible value. Playability How was the action out of the box? Right out of the box the action was exactly where I like it and the intonation was right on.
Awesome bass! Worth every penny!

General What is your overall opinion of this product? I love this bass! I'm a big guy and I was hesitant about switching to a short scale bass, but as soon as I played it, I was in love. It's a great price to see if you're into the sound and feel of Gibson basses.
