Bass Player, Dec. '98

"The GRP feels great in your lap or on a strap.  The bass scores high in playability with its nice neck cutaway and sculpted neck heel... A well built great playing bass...(it has perfectly leveled frets)...The preamp offers a lot of tones for a single-pickup instrument...No stock parts here.  The GR Bass features a custom-made bridge...The company's GRP5 is for players who can't settle for garden variety.  The bass has a fast neck, great setup, and a sleek oil finish, which makes it an instrument that plays with you, not against you."  Scott Malandrone, Product Profiles, Bass Player, Dec. '98.

GRP4 Bass

"A bass is a bass is a bass, you may say. But small things make big differences, and the P4 Bass by GR Basses ($1249) has some intriguing features that increase playability and give you a greater resonant bass sound. The curved heel shape makes room for enhanced reach when playing high on the neck, something to consider if you're a Peter Hook kind of bassist.  Also, the ergonomic side set tuning pegs are a welcome sight for sore hands.  For greater resonance, the bridge is custom made with large radius saddles and pickups by Basslines Music Man with your choice of solid ash, alder or poplar body with maple neck." (Musician magazine)

"The unique open headstock design of GR Basses was hard to miss.   We dug the custom bridge with large radius saddles and the Basslines Music Man replacement Systems on the GRP\T4, GRP4 and GRP5." Bass Player, May, 1998 "A perfect blend of vintage style and modern high end features, the GRT series from GR Basses provides a serious bass for today's serious players."
