G. Gould GGi5 5-String Bass - Plum/Aqua Burst

This stunning G. Gould GGi5 features a unique finish (currently named Plum/Aqua Burst) that moves out from aqua to a brilliant purple, over a gorgeous, spalted, quilted maple top. The lightweight alder back offers a slightly lighter contrast—and with the use of 5 low-mass Gotoh tuners and an aluminum ABM bridge—it keeps the bass balanced, comfortable and very easy to hold and play.

The graphite neck has a phenolic fingerboard (never warps—perfect for travel) with 24 frets and 35” scale—another Gould innovation—to allow proper tension and improved tuning on the low B string. The electronics package features EMG X pickups (EMG-CSX humbucker in the bridge, and the proprietary EMG-CSX-GG in the neck).  These are run through the EMG-BTS active Bass and Treble system.The result is great sound and feel 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 (among other innovations). Now he’s crafting spectacular instruments with his eponymous G.Gould Music brand, and we love ‘em!
