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.
