The jazz bass shape is a staple design that doesn’t need drastic changes. And that’s why Leo Fender’s G&L have kept it simple and refined. 

They’ve packed the JB with all the features you’d expect of a classic instrument, plus the added innovations of one of the best luthiers in history. 

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 20 medium-jumbo nickel frets deliver high-end smoothness for great playability. At the headstock are stylish vintage open back tuning heads, one of the many design decisions that heave made this bass so iconic.

Sound

G&L-designed alnico single coil pickups provide the classic growl pulled straight out the 60’s. Everyone knows and loves the contemporary sound of J-basses. It has a smooth low end and can produce a slightly scooped midrange and bright highs. 

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 JB sports a rounded Basswood body in a classy gloss finish. The neck is made of a crisp, bright hard-rock Maple, with a medium C shape for something meaty to hold onto. It’s topped with a beautifully dark Brazilian Cherry fretboard.
