The first thing you’ll notice when you pick up this 5-string Pavel Gibor Deluxe is the extreme attention to detail and the quality of craftsmanship characteristic of Texas based Pavel De La Fuente’s work. This bass has a very clear and punchy tone with a strong fundamental. The Gibor deluxe’s playability is top notch: the instrument balances perfectly on a strap and has a fast, comfortable neck. The fretwork is impeccable and features smaller vintage style, low profile frets. The action can be setup very low if desired.
The body is crafted from a beautifully grained and oil finished piece of African Mahogany, and features a stunning burl/flamed Bastogne Walnut top with a high gloss finish. A gorgeous flame Maple fingerboard is accented nicely with large abalone side dot inlays and is backed by a 3-piece Maple/African Mahogany/Maple neck, featuring a carved volute, matching Bastogne Walnut headstock veneer and a zero-fret.
The electronics package includes custom Reed James Neo pickups with custom Flame Maple covers along with a 3-band Bartolini preamp that includes a push/pull master volume control for active or passive operation and 2 switchable midrange frequencies. Gold Hipshot bridge and ultra-light tuning keys complete the package along with gold Dunlop strap locks and a hard-shell case.
