Rare Gibson Les Paul Active Bass, Tobacco Sunburst, 1997
Rare active bass in my collection, Gibson Les Paul Custom Active Bass made 1995 in lovely Hi-Gloss Tobacco Sunburst. Like its LP guitar counterpart, it features a carved maple top, plus a chambered mahogany body and ebony fingerboard. however, it lacks a toggle switch for the pickups, the tone is blended in via the pots.
Hot TB Plus pickups provide expanded lows, crisp highs, and distinctive midrange you won’t find in any other pickup through combinations of the phase in/out Vol/Tone you can get an extensive range of volume and tone. The polished lacquer brings the traditional, translucent sunburst colours to life.

Hot TB Plus pickups give a great sound deep lows, trebly highs, and quite a full on midrange. Bass is pretty with polished lacquer enhancing brings the traditional, translucent sunburst colours.
