Gibson press release
As part of our 120th Anniversary, Gibson USA has reconceived several classics to suit the needs of today’s demanding players. The 2014 Midtown Signature Bass follows in the footsteps of the extremely popular Midtown guitar series and the classic Les Paul Signature semi-hollow bass, long a favorite of players from Jack Cassidy to Mike Watt. With a full-length scale for major low-end tone, innovative features, and timelessly stylish looks, this great four-string alternative represents astounding value in a hand-made American bass guitar.
Timeless tonewoods and a versatile pairing of pickups present solid, punchy tones from this 34”-scale-length bass, 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 your choice of Bullion Gold, Graphite Pearl, or Pelham Blue finish, and the 2014 Midtown Signature Bass looks every bit as good as it feels and sounds.
Pack it up in its vintage-brown hardshell case and carry it home from your authorized Gibson USA dealer today!
Body and neck The Midtown Signature Bass’s chambered mahogany back with maple top follows the classic Les Paul Signature asymmetrical double-cutaway style. Its full-length, 34” scale mahogany neck and 20-fret rosewood fingerboard incorporates traditional trapezoid inlays and a 120th Anniversary banner inlay at the 12th fret.
Pickups and electronics A deep, powerful T-Bird Plus pickup in the neck position and a smaller, punchier vintage-style T-Bird mini pickup in the bridge deliver tonalities from sweet to savage. They’re routed through a three-way selector switch, complemented by master volume and tone controls.
Hardware A three-point adjustable 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. Black speed knobs and a black bridge-pickup mounting ring complete the package.
Case and coverage The 2014 Midtown Signature Bass comes protected in a vintage-brown Gibson hardshell case, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner’s manual, and is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s 24/7/365 Customer Service.
