Some very minor finish chips, worst ones pictured, but not much else wrong with the bass. No buckle rash and case is in great shape like the bass. Not the gay brown/pink finish either ha. I don't play it but have always like the Gibbo designs and have a BC Rich Widow coming from the States so this may as well go to a player who'll use her. Tuned to and set up for standard E tuning she's ready to plug in and play. Good luck and if you aren't serious don't bid. Thanks. I'll ship anywhere too, eBay isn't letting me include that function for some reason.

Bass Guitars

Bass guitars have become increasingly popular in recent years, mostly because they are a good option for beginners. After all, the typical four strings of a beginner bass are easier to handle than the usual six on a guitar. Plus, the instrument provides the backbone to any song, rhythmically and harmonically, so it suits many genres and styles. However, many types are available, and choosing a quality one involves some key considerations.

Acoustic vs. Electric

Because bass guitars differ considerably in price and quality, consider your experience level, your needs, and the type of music you intend to play before making a choice. Basic acoustic bass guitars are a good choice for those only starting to learn how to play. Plus, it doesn't require any additional equipment and suits many types of music. Alternatively, if you're an experienced player, you may want an electric bass guitar for better electronics. However, the tradeoff is in the extra equipment needed and more involved set-up.

Body Shape

Bass guitars come in multiple shapes, so it is important to choose a model that suits your playing style while feeling good in your hands. Body shapes vary, but the main ones you can find include P-Bass, J-Bass, and modern. P-Bass guitars are a good option for rock and reggae, whereas J-Bass designs work well for styles that require more accuracy. Finally, modern bass guitars, such as Ibanez or Ernie Ball bass guitars, suit for a wide range of styles as they are the most versatile. In any case, generally any genre can benefit from the addition of bass guitar.

Type of Wood

The wood a bass guitar is made of is not only important for the appearance of the instrument, but also for the sound. Some of the most common choices include alder, ash, basswood and mahogany.
