Grab This Bass and RockThe Gibson Grabber '70s Tribute Bass honors Gibson's heritage as bass innovator. From Jack Bruce to John Entwhistle to Krist Novoselic, Gibson's basses have powered some of the heaviest rock ever made. And who could forget Gene Simmons onstage in full Kiss regalia, gripping his Gibson Grabber? Instead of the moving humbucker of the original Grabber, the '70s Tribute is fitted with three hot single-coils and a unique switching scheme that give you a broad range of fat punchy tone with low noise. Set yourself apart as a bassist, with the Gibson Grabber '70s Tribute Bass.
Gibson Grabber '70s Tribute Electric Bass at a Glance:
You're in good company with a Gibson bass
When talkin' bass, Gibson may not be the first company that springs to mind, but when you think about it, Gibson has produced some pretty wild basses. Pull up some live Cream on YouTube and you'll see Jack Bruce holding down the low end on an EB3. Of course, Thunderbirds (reverse and non-reverse) were John Entwhistle's instruments of choice for a number of years with the Who. Gibson launched the Grabber in '73, and a few years later, it became Gene Simmons's weapon of choice. Then there's Krist Novoselic of Nirvana, who favored Gibson's RD. So you see, you're in very good company with a Gibson bass in your hands.
Innovative electronics give you a broad range of great tone - and no noise
The Gibson Grabber '70s Tribute Bass Sports three single-coil G3 pickups and a unique switching arrangement. A vintage-style 3-way switch gives you neck and middle pickups, bridge and middle, or all three pups together. In all three of these switching options, the pickups operate in humbucking configuration, giving you the punch of single-coils - without the noise. It's the best of both worlds.
Nitrocellulose lacquer finish, for the look of a well-aged classic
Gibson's Grabber '70s Tribute Bass wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes - standard back in the day - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities. This bass has the look and feel of a well-aged classic.
