Descrizione

1972 Gibson Grabber G3 Natural Wood + Maple Fretless

Gibson G3 Bass

Solid maple or alder body, maple neck. 34 1/2 inch scale.

The Gibson G3 bass, or Grabber 3 bass, was launched in 1975, as an upgraded Grabber, or G1. The only difference between a Grabber and a G3 is the pickup configuration. The G3 features 3 single coil pickups wired in humbucking configuration, whilst the Grabber, had one 'sliding' humbucker.

G3 Controls

  • Forward position activates the front and middle pickups in humbucking configuration.
  • The back position activates the middle and back pickup in the same manner.
  • The middle position activates all three pickups for what we have coined a "buck-and-a-half".

Woods and Finishes

Like G1s, G3s were available in several finishes: ebony, natural maple gloss (maple body), natural satin (alder body), sunburst, walnut and wine red. It is not mentioned as being available in white in the G3 production totals. The rare colours are walnut (40) and wine red (9). In the early 1980s, candy apple red was another finish offerred. Fretboards are maple, rosewood, and ocasionally ebony.

1982 Candy Apple Red G3 bassThe 1980s

The last price list / catalogue appearance of the G3 was in 1980, but as is often the case with Gibson, they still made them for a little longer. They were made at the Gibson Kalamazoo factory from 1975-1982 or maybe later. In 1985 some G3s were stamped in the Nashville plant, though in very small numbers, so potentially using Kalamazoo bodies and necks.

This 1982 G-3 is unusual in having an ebony fingerboard, and Candy Apple Red finish. This colour was being widely used at the time on the eighties Victory basses, and was never offered on seventies instruments.
