What could be cooler than a 70's Fender Jazz Bass?  How about a brand new, G&L JB?  This is so cool, a maple neck with a black, block markers, sunburst finish, two G&L JB Alinico 5 single coil pickups.  The neck is hard rock maple, the body is alder, it is 1 1/2'' at the nut.  If you like seventies funk, you'll be over the moon for this.  The Brothers Johnson wish they had this bass.  I've dealt vintage guitars for many years and this is better than any 70's vintage Jazz Bass I ever had.  I don't want offend any owners of 70's Fender's, I LOVE them, but this is lighter, and honestly, better made.  Hey, don't take my word for it. Try it, you'll love it.  Comes with hard case.

Description

Details

Players fond of the old adage "if it ain't broke…" haven't played a JB. You see, the G&L JB is all about refinement, blending "holy grail" Alnico single-coil tone with modern improvements and superb craftsmanship. The JB's classic Alnico V pickups have tone reminiscent of the best examples from the early '60s, thanks to the work of Paul Gagon, G&L VP Engineering.

The JB projects a time-honored yet subtly progressive vibe, embracing the past yet unafraid of moving forward. The slim, hard-rock maple neck features an easy-playing satin finish, while its contemporary 12" radius and Plek-dressed medium-jumbo nickel frets deliver silky playability. What's more, the JB features an innovative Leo Fender-designed Saddle-Lock bridge to transfer string energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument. The moment you open the deluxe Tolex hardshell case made by G&G Quality Case, you'll be greeted with an instrument of timeless elegance and a delicious aroma that'll have your pulse racing.
