The small, fast bass.
The Gibson SG Reissue Bass brings back Gibson's classic dual-pickup SG bass from the '70s! The reissue
bass has the 30-1/2" short scale of the original, as well as its slim, fast neck. Mahogany body and neck. The Gibson SG Reissue
Bass features a vintage-style TB neck humbucker pickup and a mini-humbucker at the bridge for wide tonal range. Gibson includes
a hardshell case with the reissue SG Standard Bass.
3-Way Adjustable Bridge
Gibson's innovative 3-way adjustable bridge is the standard for simplicity and functionality. It provides you with the ability
to adjust and fine-tune the height of the SG Standard Bass' strings in all directions—front, back, and side-to-side.
This gives the bridge a floating feature, thus allowing the bass to be equipped with a variety of string gauges and multiple
The SG Reissue bass's legendary resonance, tone, and sustain is the result of anchoring the bridge
directly into the body at its 3 adjustable points, providing a firm seating for the strings and yielding a strong union between
the strings and the body. Readily accessible screws make setting the intonation simple. To this day, Gibson's 3-way adjustable
bridge remains an industry standard. It is the epitome of form and function in bass guitar bridge design.
Like all classic Gibson guitars, the necks on the SG Standard Basses are distinguished by one of the more traditional features
that have always set them apart—a glued neck joint. Gluing the neck to the body of the guitar insures a "wood-to-wood"
contact, no air space in the neck cavity, and maximum contact between the neck and body, allowing the neck and body to function
as a single unit. The result? Better tone, better sustain, and no loose or misaligned necks.
TB and TB Mini Humbuckers
The pickups on the early Gibson basses of the 1960s remained unchanged for many years, undergoing only minor cosmetic modifications
from time to time, but staying true to the originals' sonic characteristics. The pickups in today's SG Standard Bass—the
vintage-style TB Plus humbucker and TB mini humbucker—are wax-potted and capture and recreate the classic attributes
of those early Gibson basses. The TB plus humbucker in the neck is a traditional hum-cancelling bass pickup with a full frequency,
heavy-bottom sound, similar to pickups with a passive EQ. The EB mini humbucker in the bridge is traditionally smaller but
packs a sweet punch with exceptional mid-range presence. This combination makes the SG Standard Bass a versatile instrument
with a wide range of tonal possibilities.
20-Fret Rosewood Fingerboard
Rosewood has always graced the fingerboards of the world's finest stringed instruments, including many of today's Gibson guitars
and basses. The fingerboard on the Gibson SG Standard Bass is constructed from the highest grade rosewood on the planet. The
rosewood is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson's team of skilled wood experts before it enters the factories to
be fitted onto the neck of the SG Standard Bass. The resilience of this dense and durable wood makes the fingerboards extremely
balanced and stable, and gives each note unparalleled clarity and bite.
