The P-bass shape is a staple design that doesn’t need drastic changes. That’s why Leo Fender’s G&L only subtly tweaked the classic LB-100 for a modern playing experience. 

They’ve packed the LB-100 with all the features you’d expect from a bass steeped in history, plus the added innovations of one of the best luthiers to have ever lived. 

Hardware

The Tribute line of basses house great features usually found on G&L’s Californian-made series. It’s equipped with their in-house Saddle-Lock bridge design transferring more resonance into the body for a greater playing experience. 

While 21 medium-jumbo nickel frets (yes, 21) deliver high-end smoothness for great playability. At the headstock are stylish vintage open back tuning heads, one of the many design decisions that make this bass so iconic.

Sound

G&L-designed alnico V split-coil pickups provide the classic growl with added versatility for a variety of genres. Everyone knows and loves the contemporary sound of P-basses. It has a smooth low end can produce a slightly scooped midrange and bright highs. Overall a tight, focused sound.

There are two tone controls and one volume so there’s plenty of variation to work with. Roll off on the tone knobs to get a 50’s or 60’s vibe. Crank it and the you’ll have a startlingly powerful sound. 

Body and neck

The LB-100 differs from the JB or L-2000 with its sleeker, thinner body for more comfort. It sports a light Alder body in a classy gloss finish. The neck is made of a crisp, bright hard-rock Maple, with a modern C shape for easy playability. It’s topped with a beautiful Brazilian Cherry fretboard.
