The G&L JB Bass is a superb all-rounder for every kind of player who wants a blast from the past, without compromising playability or comfort.
The Iconic 60's Bass Lives On
With decades of electric bass design and heritage from the G&L Fullerton factory, these timeless instruments provide a unique blend of rocking low-end tone with quirky design features that transport you back into the glory years of Rock and Roll.
A Timeless Take
Part of the revered status of the original G&L Basses had a lot to do with inconsistency. Back in the day, each bass rolled off the line a little differently, so some were "accidentally" built perfectly. This formed a challenging prospect for the modern day G&L engineers, looking to capture the mystery of the perfect precision bass. But they succeeded with the conception of the JB Bass! A unique instrument that truly delivers old school feel and tone.
Full-Bodied Bass Tone
The secret to the timeless 'JB' tone lies in the 'holy grail' Alnico single-coil pickups and solid alder body. The JB’s classic Alnico V pickups have tone reminiscent of the best examples from the early ‘60s, thanks to the work of Paul Gagon, G&L VP Engineering.
If super hot pickups and solid tonewoods wern't enough, the G&L JB Bass is rounded off with top hardware to keep it all in place. PLEK dressed frets, Ultra Lite Tuners and Chrome Hardware seal the deal. Super fun to play whilst retaining the essence of an old school G&L.
You'll also get a G&L Deluxe Hardshell case and certificate of authenticity with your purchase.
