G. Gould GGi5 5-String Bass - Beeswing Red Narra Top/Swamp Ash Body

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.

This GGi5 features a rare Beeswing Red Narra top (mahogany family, originally from Laos) over a  low-density swamp ash body. The top wood grain pattern creates a somewhat lacy glow closeup—reminiscent of bees wings—hence the name. And the ash body’s light weight, combined with the use of low-mass Gotoh tuners, keeps the weight of the instrument to a very low 8.6 lbs. 

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 through a proprietary G.Gould EQ system with active Bass and Treble controls. The result is great sound and feel to match the gorgeous look. 

Why We Like G. Gould Basses

Our 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.
