As part of their 120th Anniversary, Gibson USA has reconceived several classics to suit the needs of today's demanding players. The 2014 SG Special Bass rounds up all the legendary features of a long line of solidbody Gibson electric basses, enhances the tone and versatility, then delivers all this at a truly astounding price for an instrument that's hand-crafted in America by the world's most respected guitar maker.
Timeless tonewoods and a versatile pairing of pickups present solid, punchy tones from this 30"-scale-length four-string, while an innovative T-Bird three-point bridge and Grover shamrock tuners anchor it all down. Add a 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret and vintage-correct appointments, and the 2014 SG Special Bass looks every bit as gorgeous as it feels and sounds.
Body and Neck
The bass is crafted from solid mahogany in the iconic double-cutaway SG style, with a glued-in, short-scale mahogany neck carved to a comfortable slim profile. Its rosewood fingerboard carries 20 jumbo frets, dot inlays, and a 120th Anniversary banner inlay at the 12th fret.
Pickups and Electronics
The SG Special Bass's deep, powerful T-Bird Plus pickup in the neck position and a smaller, punchier vintage-style T-Bird mini pickup in the bridge deliver titanic timbres. They're routed through independent volume controls and a master tone control, yielding a versatile combination of multiple- and single-pickup tones.
A three-point T-Bird bridge provides a rock-solid anchor at the body end for optimum resonance and sustain, while classic Grover shamrock tuners offer easy and efficient tuning. A multi-ply black pickguard and black top-hat knobs with silver inserts complete the package.
Case and Coverage
The 2014 SG Special Bass comes protected in a vintage-brown Gibson hardshell case, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner's manual, and is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson's 24/7/365 Customer Service.
