Great sound and gorgeous wood!
I'm thrilled with this bass. I have a deep appreciation of woods, and this mahogany, especially on my particular bass, is stunning! It's a richer experience for me to play a bass where I can actually lay my hands directly on the wood. My friends are wowed by it, too.
The sound is as great as I was expecting from an SG. I like Gibson products, and this is no disappointment! The power is there for sure, and you can dial in many tone colors. I'm enjoying setting my perfect tones for classical, blues, rock, folk
The comfort factor is of primary importance, as I'm rather small in stature. This is the most comfortable neck I have ever played!
I replaced the strings with La Bella Deep Talkin' flatwounds, which suit this bass perfectly. Had some minor buzzing at first, but replacing the strings and tightening the humbucker plate screws did the trick.
I love this bass, I'm excited to get it out there in performance. I'm grateful to Sweetwater for having such a low price - it allowed me to afford it.
