Why doesnt Gibson have the balls to issue a low-impedance model like what Les actually played, now that he's gone. It would be a fitting tribute.

The LP Recording from the '70s was low-impedence; one of my all-time favorites! I think the LP Triumph bass was a swell; I also liked them. But, given the quality/accuaracy/price of their recent RI models, I'd rather wait for an original to come up.

That should, of course, read "as well", not "a swell" - though both instruments are, indeed, swell - peachy keen, in fact.

I have a predecessor to the Triumph - a '69 or'70 low impedance Les Paul bass. Love the sound, and it plays great, but my fifty something back can't hold it up all night for a gig - it is basically a two and a half inch thick slab of mahogany, weighs a ton.
I think a reissue of some of these instruments is a great idea.
