Overview

A cult favorite of the company's bass offerings from the '70s, the Gibson Ripper has developed an affinity with heavier players for its aggressive character and versatile tonal options. Coming in a svelte body design with beveled edges reminiscent of Gibson guitars, the Ripper's six-position switch allows you to operate the humbuckers separately, in tandem, or in split for a single-coil sound. Most notably used by Gene Simmons and Krist Novoselic, this model is a pillar of heavy low-end.
