Gibson Continental V Bass Guitar

Gibson opens a new era in bass design with the Continental V, featuring an ergonomic player-friendly body of certified, eco-friendly SmartWood©. The combination of maple, swamp ash and “snakewood” (angelimrajado) sounds as sweet as it looks.
Simply gorgeous in appearance and tone. The Continental V sets a new standard for bass beauty with a stunning combination of eco-friendly SmartWoods. The top is snakewood (angelim rajado). The back is swamp ash, and the center block is of curly maple. A hand-rubbed oil finish brings out the beauty of the woods. The neck is maple with Guatemalan rosewood fingerboard. Gold hardware is the finishing touch. Includes Gibson hardshell case.
