G. Gould GGi5-S-MMB 5-String Bass — Sonic Blue

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 features a sweet Sonic Blue finish on an ultra light swamp ash body. The graphite neck has a 24-fret phenolic fingerboard with plastic dots and a comfortable 35” scale. Tuners are black Gotoh Res-o-lites.

The electronics package features EMG X pickups through a EMG-BTS EQ system. The pickups are an EMG-MM5TWX bridge pickup that can be either single or double coil (push/pull select on Master Volume), and a proprietery EMG-40CSX-GG single-magnet humbucker in the neck. Controls are Volume, Blend, and separate active Bass and Treble. The 18V power supply offers more headroom and sonic range. The bass comes with a set of G.Gould Extra Long Scale Taper-Core strings—specifically designed for Gould's 35" 5-string basses. Great tone to match the gorgeous look. A deluxe asoft-sided case is included.

*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.
