    Product Description

    G&L has brought its popular offset model, the Fallout, to its diverse bass guitar range. Driven by a powerful Magnetic Field Design (MFD) humbucker that guarantees bold bass tones, the affordable G&L Tribute Fallout bass is perhaps more distinctive for its short 30" scale length. Other key features include G&L's super-solid Saddle Lock bridge and a comfortable "Slim C"-shaped neck.

    Short Scale Design

    The G&L Tribute Fallout bass boasts a modest and manageable 30" scale length. With less string tension than a conventional 34” bass scale length, this shorter instrument offers a much looser feel as less strain is exerted on the strings; making them easier to fret and even bend. This, combined with the frets being much closer together, means that the G&L Fallout bass feels easy to play and delivers a deep, fat sound.

    Classic Construction

    Unconventional scale length aside, the G&L Fallout bass' tonewoods are fairly typical. A light and balanced-sounding Basswood body is paired with a snappy bolt-on Hard Rock Maple neck, adorned with a Maple fingerboard for extra tonal vibrancy.

    Saddle Lock Bridge

    G&L's acclaimed Saddle Lock bridge makes an appearance on the Tribute Fallout bass. Using a mechanism that prevents the individual string saddles from moving around, this system ensures that your strings are evenly spaced apart for greater playing consistency. With the saddles locked together, the vibrations from the strings are also transferred more effectively through the bass’ body - offering increased sustain.

    Powerful MFD Pickup

    Powered by a G&L Magnetic Field Humbucker (MFD), the Tribute Fallout short-scale bass emits a thick sound with plenty of bottom-end boom. Utilising ceramic bar magnets, G&L's distinctive MFD design transfers the magnetic field to the top of the pickup, ensuring a warmer and more dynamic sound with a wider frequency response.

    And while a single pickup configuration may seem limited, the G&L Fallout bass does sport a 3-position mini toggle switch that allows you to choose between parallel, split and "OMG" pickup modes. Giving you a range of different timbres, the Fallout also comes with customary volume and tone controls too.

    Mr Alan Wadey22nd Mar 2022

    This bass is comfortable to play and boasts a very powerful humbucking pickup, which can produce a variety of tones. The build quality feels very good and the fit and finish is very good as well. Mine required a little bit of setting up to suit my personal needs. It should be noted that setting up (truss rod adjustment and intonation/string height) is a little fiddly with the locking bridge and top access to the truss rod, but this is nit picking and should not dissuade anyone from trying and buying one of these basses. I would recommend for both beginners and experienced players.

    The quality control at the factory on this guitar is awful, both the ones that I had and sent back were very badly manufactured. In the end I switched to a Fender which is fine although any guitar from Andertons will need setting up from scratch IMHO.
