Short Scale! Bottom end baby! 

Description

This is a killer 2015 Gibson Short Scale SG Bass in gloss cherry finish. This is not the cheaper worn satin model with dot neck inlays. This has the full size Mother of Pearl trapezoid block inlays with a crown inlay on the headstock. This was a special limited run with 30.5" scale length and a huge hi-mass Babicz bridge that looks like a marvel of engineering. Mahogany body and neck with Grover tuners. Weighs in at an incredibly light 6 pounds, 15 ounces and pumps out some big, fat low end with its T-Bird humbucker and mini-humbucker. Overall very clean shape with a tiny edge mark (see pics) and some small clear coat marks on the headstock and body. A 9/10 condition. Frets are A+ condition. Comes with factory paperwork, but no case. Currently strung with round wound strings. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing, as well as full specs.) Thanks for looking.

TONE:
These SG basses have mucho low end. The short scale adds to the beef, and the humbucker in the neck is super fat. Lot of vintage low end sounds to be found but also very versatile. The rear mini-bucker has a more defined bright sound and you can vary your balance between the pickups to grab a multitude of tones.

What You Get
-- Full setup and cleaning.
-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.

Guitar Setup
All our setups are done by our in-house trained luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.

Gibson SG Standard 4-string Bass Guitar at a Glance:
Short-scale length provides amazing tone and playability
Gibson mini humbuckers deliver the perfect blend of punch and clarity
Gibson's 4 Cs plan ensures top-quality components
Short-scale length provides amazing tone and playability

The short-scale length of this Gibson 2015 SG Standard bass guitar's neck makes it easier to navigate the fretboard and is perfect for guitar players moonlighting on bass and players with smaller hands. But did you know that the scale length of a guitar or bass has a direct impact on its tone? The harmonics your bass guitar generates are spaced along the strings, based on the length of the strings. Shorter strings mean the harmonics are packed in tighter, giving any note you play more harmonic richness than a longer scale would. Just plug this SG Standard bass into your amp, and you'll see what we mean as notes come alive and cut through the mix without becoming overbearing.

Gibson mini humbuckers deliver the perfect blend of punch and clarity
Whether you play rock, jazz, country, or metal, you're going to love the sound of this Gibson 2015 SG Standard bass guitar. That's because it sports a pair of Gibson USA's amazing T-Bird Plus humbucking pickups. Driven by premium ceramic magnets, the T-Bird Plus and the vintage-style T-Bird Mini pickups give you the perfect blend of punch and clarity. And with individual volume and tone controls, this SG Standard bass lets you dial in a wide range of killer tones.

Gibson's 4 Cs plan ensures top-quality components
When buying diamonds, there are 4 characteristics that are used to grade or select the stones. These are known as the 4 Cs: carat, cut, clarity, and color. Gibson has implemented a similar system to grade their guitars' components: weight, top contour, grain structure/purity, and grain figure/depth. By putting this system into action, Gibson can ensure that all of their guitars are built using top-grade materials.

Gibson mini humbuckers deliver the perfect blend of punch and clarity
