Gibson Porn

Recommended Posts

Another short lived gem that Gibson produced in 2013. I love these basses and was very fortunate to find another in Vintage burst.

Woah! How did I miss this thread?

Here's an old pic of me with my beloved 1969 Gibson Les Paul Bass. Still my No.1 bass!

I've got plenty of Gibson Porn to share by the way. Some pics are from the book that I made. And I also have lot of pics that didn't make it into the book.

I can post some of the pics here If you like. Just let me know.

Basvarken I think I bought the thread back to life with my new and awesome '05 Les Paul. I love Gibson basses especially Les Pauls and I only waited about 25 years to get one 😐

I was actually looking at buying the Gibson Bass book the other day strangely enough. I saved it to my favourites list ,  there's a definite purchase coming soon 🤪

 

Cheers,

James.

Up close and personal with a Gibson AB Super 400 from 1999.
This tribute to the legendary Super 400 guitar from 1934 is a true masterpiece.

This eight string LPB-3 Standard was built by the Gibson Custom Shop for T.M. Stevens. Note the plastic saddles on the Warwick bridge and the string through body holes for the octave strings. The bass is signed by T.M. Stevens and it says "I sweat on this bass".

Here's a close up of a 1982 Gibson G3 in Candy Apple Red finish and bolt on maple neck with ebony fretboard. A rare combination!

I'll post some more cool ones soon

That CAR G 3 is 😎 

I had to buy the book too, with my second Gibby bass incoming (walnut '75 eb3l) . and I'm really enjoying it. There are a lot of basses in there I never knew they exist! :)

Here's a pic of a fretless Ripper that didn't make it in the book (There are a few other Rippers featured in the Gibson Bass Book though)

This 1997 Leland Sklar Signature Bass was designed by Mike McGuire and the Gibson Custom Division.
Sklar only played this bass for a fleeting moment in his career (if at all). Not too sure that Lee Sklar ever took it too serious either, as in interviews he quickly forgot about mentioning it. Which is a bit unusual for a dedicated signature model...

All three play and sound great. I never thought I would like the EB3 that much as I found the Epiphone  version a bit meh. This Gibson sounds great though, which might have to do with the pickup being closer to the bridge.
