Epiphone Ltd. Ed. RIPPER Bass Guitar
The Ripper is back from the past with a few new features straight from the Epiphone Custom Shop. With a hard maple body and matching maple neck and fingerboard, the Epiphone Ltd. Ed. RIPPER is a bass players’ delight. The back of the neck has a satin finish for smooth feel while the fingerboard is a high gloss polyurethane finish to give years of protection. For great sustain, it’s got added a brass nut and a bolt on style bridge giving maximum transfer of sound. Add to that a new PJ pickup configuration with individual volume controls, master tone and a three way toggle, the Ripper delivers a complete tonal spectrum from thundering rock lines to delicate jazz counterpoint.
