Gibson: Gibson Standard SG Bass
The sound on this bass is excellent. It is very deep, but can be surprisingly versatile. Overall this bass is amazing, there isn't anything I can think of that needs to be improved.

Price paid: $ 1400

Purchased from: Guitar Center

Features: Made in the USA. - 21 frets w/ rosewood fretboard - Solid top - Body and neck wood is Mahogany - Body style is SG - Bridge style is Tune-O-Matic - 2 Volume and 1 Tone selectors - Nonlocking Grover tuners - Comes with a Gibson hardshell case // 9

Sound: The sound on this bass Is excellent. It is very deep, but can be surprisingly versatile. It has the raw power to shake the windows in my Room running through a 150 watt solid-state amp. I like to play classic rock, but also some singer-songwriter stuff like Jack Johnson. // 10

Action, Fit & Finish: Perfect action straight out of the box. The Nitrocellulose finish is perfect. The guitar arrived at my house flawless. // 10

Reliability & Durability: This bass is the perfect gig instrument. I've only had it for about a month, but the finish is perfect and will definitely will last. The strap buttons were replaced immediately with scholler strap locks. I never go without strap locks, they are a 30 dollar investment that can save your instrument from crashing to the floor during a gig. // 9

Overall Impression: Overall this bass is amazing, there isn't anything I can think of that needs to be improved. I've been playing guitar for about a year bass only a couple of months. It's very versatile for all kinds of music. I own a Gibson LP Standard and a Dean at the moment. The only slight problem I've had is that there are very few finishes to choose from. It only comes in faded black, faded red, Standard red, and standard peachy color. // 9
