Gibson also made an SB-400, which is the long scale (34") equivalent of this bass, with the exact same specs. The SB-300 and SB-400 were made between 1971 and 1973.

This bass is featured in the Gibson Bass Book on page 32 (the SB-400 on page 33).

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's breakthrough album Nevermind, Gibson introduced the Krist Novoselic Signature RD Bass in 2011.
For many die-hard Gibson fans, using Jazz Bass pickups was regarded sacrilege...

Gibson didn't call them Jazz Bass pickups of course. They called them Hot Stack pickups. Which means they are single coils, but there is some sort of hum cancelling going on.

Of course the Jazz Bass pickups were a direct reference to the bass that the Nirvana bass player used in his modified RD Standard Bass during the In Utero tour.

This bass is featured in the Gibson Bass Book on page 156-157.
