The Gibson L9-S Ripper is a model of electric bass guitar made by Gibson_Guitar_Corporation"Gibson Guitar Corporation. The Ripper was manufactured from 1973 until 1983; the peak year being 1976. Most had a maple body with laminated maple neck, however a significant number manufactured in 75-76 had lighter alder bodies while retaining the maple neck. The later models of 1976 and on featured a different routing in the body for the wires, and the pickups were screwed in by three posts as opposed to the old two-post variation. These models also featured an edgier, and slimmer body, with more beveling and contours around the horns of the bass. The new look was geared towards heavier music that was gaining popularity under the ending decade. It came in three colors: natural, sunburst, and black over the 10 years it was made. All models featured a black pickguard and headstock. They were equipped with two pickups - designed especially for the Ripper by Bill Lawrence which were called "Super Humbuckers", and a four way pickup selector control; a familiar Gibson feature from the older Gibson EB-3 bass. There was also a fretless version of the Ripper - identical in all respects (fretboard aside). The original Gibson model is now rare and has seen significant inflation in value recently; however a cheaper Epiphone model was still in production for a few short years, it was featured with two single coil pickups rather than Gibson's Super Humbuckers.
