The “Mudbucker” – Gibson’s top selling bass of the 60′s and 70′s. One of the most recognizable and renowned basses Gibson ever made. One of the world’s signature basses.
This is a ’69 Walnut Mahogany, single humbucker, or “Mudbucker” as it is more commonly referred to, that gives a super low, lumpy, phat, warm and mellow 60′s tone. It’s a short scale bass, which was very popular in the mid to late 60′s. As played by Jack Bruce, John Entwistle and Andy Fraser
It’s a classic bass sound. Really. I can’t emphasize enough how cool this thing sounds. A thumper rather than a twanger (like the 1444 in store). Amazing for 60′s style genres.
