Player's Perspective

The G&L JB is all about subtle refinements to a timeless design. Paul Gagon, the tone and pickup guru over at G&L, analyzed hundreds of coveted old-school basses from the '60's. He found that part of their revered status 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. These near perfect "Holy Grail" basses inspired and informed the G&L JB. The looks, feel, sound and vibe are familiar and reliable, but there are tweaks hiding in the design that'll please your ears and hands for years to come. The tone is rich, all-purpose sound that will enliven your ideas without getting in the way, and the neck feels like an old friend. This is the perfect go-to bass for every kind of player.

Item Details

This G&L USA JB features a 3-tone sunburst finish over an alder body. The maple neck is a G&L modern narrow "C" shape, and it has a rosewood fretboard with a 12" radius and 21 medium jumbo PLEK dressed frets. Electronically, this bass is another one of Paul Gagon's unmatched designs. There are two G&L JB vintage alnico V pickups, and they have a complete, balanced sound that will work in a variety of styles. G&L's Saddle Lock bridge transfers string vibrations to the body more efficiently than traditional bridges. Other features include custom G&L "Ultra-Lite" tuners, chrome hardware and a 1 1/2" bone nut. This is the perfect bass for anyone who's looking for that unmatched sound and feel of the early 60's, but on a new instrument that'll last for decades and doesn't cost a fortune.
