In 1974/75 Gibson produced a number of promotional 7" 45 rpm records to promote various new instruments. These included one for the Ripper bass, and one for the Marauder guitar. Unlike the earlier flexi-discs made for the Les Paul Recording guitar and Triumph bass, these were actually made of vinyl, with a proper sleeve.
Clip 4, featuring both pickups shows that this was with recorded with an early Marauder, fitted with a three-way switch rather than the blend control that allowed the two pickups to me mixed to varying degrees.
A track highlighting the Gibson Marauder, featuring Bruce Bolen (Gibson Marauder guitar), Henry Sterlicky (Gibson Ripper bass), Johnny Propst (Keyboard), Drums Larry Londin.
This piece of music blends jazz, disco and rock for a sound that must have been completely in vogue when the record was recorded. Bruce Bolen, a Gibson employee and distinguished jazz guitarist, plays a number of styles throughout the track.
