Featuring 30" Scale Length & G&L's Powerful MFD Pickup
This product is not currently available.
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.
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.
