The Gibson Bass Book – An Illustrated tribute
LIMITED EDITION. ONLY 100 MADE!
Each book is hand numbered and signed by the maker.
Thanks to the overwhelming success of the first edition of The Gibson Bass Book here’s the second edition. Some newly discovered basses were added, such as the Bunny Brunel Signature Bass and the 1959 Explorer. Plus of course the ones the Gibson released after the first edition of the book was printed (in 2016). The Epiphone chapter was extended and there is a spread about Orvilles and Kalamazoo. And there’s even a spread The Heritage!
So here it is: A brandnew version of The Gibson Bass Book with 204 pages full of Gibson bass guitars.
More than 85 different Gibson bass models are featured with unique photographs and descriptions.
Hardback Deluxe edition. Pages printed in full colour on Machine Coated paper. The page size is 210 x 297 cm (A4)
A soft cover version of this book will be available shortly.
NOTE: at the moment it is not possible to order more than one book at the time.
If you would like to order more than one, please send me an email and we’ll work it out.
I am based in The Netherlands. Customers outside the European Union please expect two weeks shipping time.

I am a sucker for a great guitar or bass book and this is a great example. With a limited knowledge of Gibson’s output over the past 60 years thegibsonbassbook is a joyous read lavishly illustrated and beautifully presented.

What a great book. I’m truly enjoying it. As of now, I only own one Gibson Bass – a 2015 SG Bass. And an Epiphone Explorer Bass.
After reading Rob‘s book, more Gibson Basses may follow …. ?
