Sound Quality

It has that old 70's single coil bass tone. Not a lot of low end, actually it has a great bouncy high end for punk rock. The positions wasn't just to switch the pickups, but it also changed the phase. I couldn't imagine using this bass for much out side of punk, but I did see footage of the Bee Gees using one.


It was 21 years old when I bought it and it's still going strong.

General Comments

I'm not a fan of Gibson basses, I feel their chunky, and their sound leaves alot to be desired, but the Ripper is a fun bass to thrash on. Plus the neck is so thick thick that if you practice on it everyday, you should be able to just fly an a P-bass. I used it for recording and the result was a very ditinct bass character.
