    Product Description

    Bassists who are fond of the old adage "if it ain’t broke, don't fix it" clearly haven’t played a G&L JB-2! This rock-solid workhorse instrument from G&L's affordable Tribute Series is all about refinement — taking the iconic J-bass formula and refining it by blending "holy grail" Alnico single-coil tone with modern Leo Fender-designed innovations.

    Key Features

    • Poplar Body — Often likened to Alder, Poplar is comparably balanced in sound with a slightly lighter feel.
    • Medium "C" Maple Neck — Comfortable neck shape offers superb playability for both modern and traditional bassists; enhanced with a slippery satin finish and smooth Rosewood fingerboard.
    • Bolt-On Construction — Produces a snappy note response for an immediate playing experience.
    • G&L Alnico V Pickups — Possess a tone reminiscent of the best "holy grail" examples from the early '60s; serving up delicious, classic sounds with great clarity and sustain.
    • Dual-Volume Control Setup — Allows you to strike any balance between the two pickups. Master tone control also lets you remove treble and bite from both single-coils for a more rounded "jazz" character.
    • Leo Fender-Designed G&L 'Saddle-Lock' Bridge — Features a small Allen screw on the side of the unit, which presses all of the string saddles together so that they resonate as though they were one single mass; resulting in increased sustain.

    Trusted Customer10th Apr 2021

    This bass has all the great Jazz Bass tones. The back of the neck has the smoothest satin finish I've ever played, and the flat fretboard is very easy to play and allows for low action. The fretwork on mine was simply impeccable, no sharp ends, no nothing. Better than my MIM Strat. I will say it's quite a bit heavier than I expected. Between the basswood body and the smaller and thinner shape, I was expecting a fairly lightweight instrument (for bass standards), but this wasn't the case. Still happy I went with this over the regular JB, as I enjoy the extra playability and I'm sure that would have been even heavier.

    Huge tone and volume from the pickups. Passive but with subtle use of the volume and tone pots, which are great quality, many tones can be found. Gorgeous neck, very well shaped and balanced body. The saddle-lock bridge by Leo Fender is head and shoulders above the other hi-mass bridges on the market. Incredible sustain even with flatwound strings!
