G. Gould GGi5 5-String Bass - Tubular Quilt Maple Top/Swamp Ash Body

Occasionally we run out of superlatives for some of our instruments, and this one’s pushing the limit. Our newest G. Gould GGi5 features a rare 6A Tubular Quilt maple top  over alder body. The top has also been called Tiger Eye Quilt—either way, it might be the most 3-dimensional grain pattern we’ve seen. 

The finish is a transparent honey-amber (Mr. Gould mentioned “Honey Caramel Bourbon Whiskey” … just to hit all our favorite flavors) and it really brings out the quilt, as well as adding a beautiful warmth to the lightweight back (only 8.6 lbs., thanks in part to 5 low-mass Gotoh tuners, and the aluminum ABM bridge. 

The graphite neck has a rosewood fingerboard 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!

Why We Like G. Gould Basses

G. Gould basses turn heads. The workmanship is first-class; the top woods are typically breathtaking; the finish and sound are outstanding; and Geoff’s innovative contributions to the bass world speak for themselves. These are custom instruments, in every sense. We’re proud to be one of just a few stores carrying this elite brand.
