We’re big fans of G. Gould basses because [A] they’re some of the best basses made; [B] Geoff Gould invented the carbon-fiber composite neck*; and [C] his woods/finishes are some of the nicest to come into our store—and this one lives up to the reputation.

This GGi5 Fretless features a striking spalted maple top, over a lightweight alder body. The graphite neck has a fretless phenolic fingerboard with 24 fret markers, classic pearl dots and a comfortable 35” scale. Tuners are chrome Gotoh Res-o-lites.

The electronics package features EMG X pickups through a G. Gould EQ system with Volume, Blend, and separate active Bass and Treble controls. The 18V power supply offers more headroom and sonic range. The bass comes with a set of GHS Balanced Nickel 5M-NB strings—they sound great and create less wear on the fingerboard. Great tone to match the gorgeous look.

*If you’re not familiar with G. Gould, Geoff Gould is known as “the Godfather of Graphite.” As founder and president of Modulus Graphite, Geoff introduced the world to carbon fiber composite-neck basses. Now he’s crafting spectacular instruments with his eponymous G.Gould Music brand.
