Gibson Grabher, L9s, G3, three meteors to save themselves:
The 70s were the decline for Fender in '85 and Gibson in 86, which were sold to new owners.
An example of those unsuccessful instruments was a trio of solid basses made by Gibson from the mid-1970s to '82.
--- The L-9S Ripper was the best among them. Debuting in '73, it had two Super Humbucking pickups and an electronic configuration dubbed the Q System, with a four-position rotary switch that split the Parallel pickups and the famous "CONTROFASE" sound.
The model underwent changes in 1975, the body in alder and a fretless version was introduced.
Greg Lake, Mel Schacher (Grand Funk Railroad), Suzi Quatro, Louis Johnson embraced him but perhaps his most notable appearance was in "The Last Waltz" by Martin Scorcese, the famous 1978 documentary with Rick Danko of The Band, who played one; He always loved the Ripper.
---- At the end of '74, Gibson introduced the Grabber, which had a bolted neck, used the same body (but with a semi-pointed blade that resembles a flying V). His only keyboard option was the maple, the controls were a simple volume and tone.
To distinguish it, Gibson has created a sliding pickup that could evoke different tones simply by moving it.
The most important use of a Grabber was by Gene Simmons of Kiss, who wielded one on the cover of the '75 album Alive.
--- the G-3e debuted also in '75 with an alder body and three single coil pickups designed to function as a sort of triple coil humbucker, as well as a bolted neck and a semi-pointed blade.
Several prominent bassists relied on the G-3, including Kelly Groucutt from the Electric Light Orchestra, and while John Entwistle and Stanley Clarke posed with one, they didn't heavily use a G-3.
The Ripper, Grabber and G-3 were all cut off in '82 and seemed relegated to darkness until they appeared in the hands of 90s rockers like Krist Novoselic of Nirvana and Mike Dirnt of Green Day. , it was not enough to earn their statistics as truly "classic". ...
