    Gibson Krist Novoselic Signature RD Bass Features

    • Maple body with Ebony nitrocellulose finish
    • Maple neck with comfortable, rounded profile
    • Obeche fingerboard with acrylic dot inlays
    • Pair of Seymour Duncan Hot Stack STK-J2 pickups in the neck and bridge
    • Grover Shamrock tuners with 20:1 tuning ratio
    • Distinctive lines of the RD body shape cut a figure that stands out from the crowd
    Body and Neck
    The Krist Novoselic Signature RD Bass begins with a body and glued-in neck of solid maple, a tonewood known for its ability to add punch, clarity and sustain to the sound of any guitar. It is shaped in the image of the RD guitars and basses first introduced by Gibson USA in the 1970s, with a rounded, offset body style reminiscent of the iconic Gibson Firebird guitar and Thunderbird bass.

    The sustain and thundering resonance of the Krist Novoselic Signature RD Bass are further enhanced by a strings-through-body design with solid three-point bridge, and a gently back-angled headstock to maintain optimum string pressure in the PLEK-cut slots of a Corian nut. Meanwhile, formidable Grover ‘Shamrock-key’ tuners keep your pitch tight and true, however hard you hit it.

    The comfortably rounded neck profile with a depth of .860 inch at the 1st fret and .960 inch at the 12th is paired with an exotic obeche fingerboard with 20 frets and a 12-inch radius, all crafted to enhance a playing experience that is every bit the equal of the superior tone and construction of this outstanding Gibson bass.

    To optimize the power, punch and clarity of the Krist Novoselic Signature RD Bass' natural resonance and sustain, Gibson USA uses a pair of Seymour Duncan Bass Lines STK-J2n and STK-J2b ‘Hot Stack’ pickups. Designed to offer the precision and harmonic richness of single-coil pickups, with the noise-canceling properties of humbuckers, these Seymour Duncans provide unparalleled tones and impressive versatility.

    An independent volume control for each enables you to dial in your preferred balance of bridge and neck pickup for any playing situation, while a master tone control allows fine-tuning of your instrument's voice. Add it all up, and the Krist Novoselic Signature RD Bass from Gibson is a total monster of versatility and performance for today's master of the low-end.

    Krist Novoselic
    Through his distinctive playing with groundbreaking grunge band Nirvana, to his post-Nirvana bands Sweet 75, Eyes Adrift, and Flipper, Krist Novoselic has distinguished himself as a bassist of formidable tone and unmistakable style. Able to hold down a firm bottom end that glues a song together while simultaneously shining as a center-stage musician in his own right, Novoselic helped to establish a standard for the sound, feel, and style of alternative-rock bass playing of the past two decades.
