Description

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. Everyone knows and loves the contemporary sound of P-basses. It has a smooth low end can produce a slightly scooped midrange and bright highs. 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 LB-100 differs from the JB or L-2000 with its sleeker, thinner body for more comfort. It sports a light Alder body in a classy gloss finish. The neck is made of a crisp, bright hard-rock Maple, with a modern C shape for easy playability. It’s topped with a beautiful Brazilian Cherry fretboard.

Brand

G&L Guitars

Boorn from his CLF Research company founded in 1966, Clarence Leo Fender began the final chapter of his legendary career when he launched the G&L brand and instruments in 1980.  G&L instruments benefited from his lifetime of creativity and innovation, and throughout the 1980s his ground-breaking new instruments became icons loved by musicians around the world. Today’s G&L instruments continue to be made in his historic factory on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California – The Birthplace of Bolt-on.  We invite you to discover why Leo famously declared ‘G&L guitars and basses are the best instruments I have ever made.’

A LEGENDARY HERITAGE

By the late 1970s, Clarence Leo Fender and his CLF Research company had completed his consultancy for CBS/Fender, designed and manufactured the original Music Man instruments, and were looking forward to launching a new brand. Together with former Fender employees George Fullerton and Dale Hyatt, Leo launched his new G&L Instruments with advanced features derived from his decades of experience redefining what was possible in an electric guitar and bass.
