From Our Research Team:
A Bass Worthy of the Name SG!Gibson's classic dual-pickup SG-style bass from the 1960's has returned as the SG Reissue. With its short scale and slim neck - just like the original - the SG Reissue is the fastest bass in the Gibson family.
Gibson SG Reissue Bass Guitar Features:
The Gibson SG Reissue Bass is a fast-playing, fat-sounding gem!
Gibson: Don't Mess with a Good Thing
Gibson guitars have been around for well over a century. When guitarists are looking for an outstanding combination of superb tone and playability along with great looks and gorgeous finishes, the choice for most of those 100 plus years has been Gibson. From their amazing collection of fine acoustics to the electric guitars that literally rewrote music history, Gibson guitars have been on almost every chart-topping album from artists like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Cream and Led Zeppelin. These "first call" instruments also cross an enormous array of diverse styles, from folk and country to blues and hard rock. With that resume, it's not surprising that so many of Gibson's best-selling instruments have changed little over the decades. Because there's just no sense in messing with a good thing!

A real beauty with eyes opened or closed!
by DON JENNINGS from LEWISVILLE, TXI've only been playing bass for 3 years. I've been playing an Ibanez. I wanted a faster and better sounding bass. I shopped around thought I wanted a Fender P bass until I played this Gibson SG. WOW! ... read more [+]It is FAST! But that alone isn't enough. My new axe must also be a fat, growling machine. This baby more than fits the bill. For me, the factory strings had to go. I put a set of medium gauge Rotosound flatwound's on it and got exactly what I wanted. The fact that it is a gorgeous instrument is just icing on the cake. For some, maybe a short scale isn't what you want, but I think you should play one before you decide. It isn't cheap, but it will hold its own against anything in its price range. Another factor in this purchase is the the fact that I've been playing Les Paul's for over 25 years and love a Gibson neck. Wish I could give it 6 stars. close [-]

A masterpiece just to look at!
by Rob from New Ipswich,NHWell this is a unique bass. I also play a Fender P/bass and these two are like night and day. First impression is this is a beautiful bass! I had to constantly adjust the neck for a few months(Which w... read more [+]as easy to do) and now she`s settled in. The reason for a 4 rating is if you`re into slap or modern sounds this is not for you. If you want a tone machine that`s easy to play here`s your baby. PS It`s very light and that short neck is easy to play....ENJOY! use a big amp too........ close [-]
