This bass has a slight blemish by the battery pack on the back. The guitar has been discounted due to this. The blemish is purely cosmetic and does not impact the basses performance, sound, or playability in any way. This is still a brand new bass with a full warranty with a blemish that no one would ever see unless you point it out to them.
This G. Gould* GGi5 features a beautiful spalted curly maple top over an alder body finished in a tobacco burst for a stunning look while being incredibly lightweight (8.95lbs). The neck is Gould's trademark carbon composite with phenolic fretboard — stable, comfortable and articulate — so it sounds and plays as sweet as it looks.
The active electronics package features EMG X pickups through a EMG-BTS EQ system (EMG-CSX humbucker bridge pickup and a proprietary EMG-CSX-GG single-magnet humbucker in the neck, custom designed for G. Gould). Controls are Volume, Blend, and separate active Bass and Treble. The 18V power supply offers more headroom and sonic range.
The full-molded graphite/epoxy neck has a 24-fret phenolic fingerboard with plastic dots and a comfortable 35” scale. Tuners are black Gotoh Res-o-lites.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 soft-sided gig bag 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.
