G&L’s SB-2 is what Leo Fender believed was the most comfortable bass he ever designed. And that’s saying something from the luthier that started it all. They took a P-bass shape and subtly tweaked it for a modern playing experience. 

They’ve packed the SB-2 with all the features you’d expect from a bass first released in 1982, 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. A Magnetic Field Design single coil pickup in the bridge adds more snap and bite. The SB-2 has a smooth low end, rounded highs and because of its pickup choice can flick between punchy or slightly scooped mids. 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 SB-2 sports a rich Mahogany body in a classy gloss finish. The neck is made of a crisp, bright hard-rock Maple, with a modern C shape for fast playability. It’s topped with a beautiful matching Maple fretboard.
