Gibson 1975 bass catalog. Page 8. Details of the Les Paul Triumph (shown here in stunning white finish) and Les Paul Signature basses. White had only been listed an option for the Triumph as of 1975, and cost an additional $30.
In 1975 these two high end Gibson basses shipped in considerably lower numbers than many of Gibsons other models; to some extent this is expected, but the Les Paul signature bass actually performed very badly this year, and was subject to a significant price drop by the end of 1975.
US zone 1 prices are as follows: Les Paul Triumph bass $679 (1/1/1975, 1/6/1975, 1/11/1975); Les Paul Signature bass $649 (1/1/1975, 1/6/1975) dropping to $499 (1/11/1975).
