The JB-2 features an innovative G\u0026amp;L Saddle-Lock™ bridge to transfer string energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument. If you’re ready to let go of the past but still love that classic Alnico tone, get your hands on a JB-2 and experience a brilliant mash-up of old-school and new-school Leo. Once you play a G\u0026amp;L Tribute Series, you’ll never look back.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe JB-2’s classic Alnico V pickups have tone reminiscent of the best examples from the early ‘60s, thanks to the work of Paul Gagon, G\u0026amp;L VP Engineering. Gagon found his inspiration reviewing original prints stored in Leo Fender’s private laboratory at G\u0026amp;L, but that was just the start. About 30 years ago, Gagon was an R\u0026amp;D engineer at another company when he was tasked with finding out what was so special about the early bolt-on basses many players raved about. Gagon tirelessly analyzed many examples of what were considered holy grail basses, spending time out on the shop floor talking to builders still working in the pickup department since the ‘50s, all on a quest to discover where the real mojo was – and wasn’t. What he learned from the builders matched his own engineering analysis. You see, back in the day, the actual spec of pickups coming down that old production line varied considerably. That meant coming up with the right specs was more challenging than simply following the prints, and Gagon’s persistence paid off as the JB-2 serves up delicious, classic tone.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003e\n\u003cb\u003eSpecs\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eCONSTRUCTION: bolt-on\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eSCALE: 34\"\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003ePICKUPS: 2x G\u0026amp;L Alnico single coil pickups\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eBODY WOOD: Basswood (solid finishes) or Swamp Ash (translucent \u0026amp; burst finishes)\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eNECK WOOD: Hard-Rock Maple with Maple or Brazilian Cherry fingerboard\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eNECK WIDTH AT NUT: 1 1\/2\"\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eNECK RADIUS: 12\"\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eNECK PROFILE: medium C\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eFRETS: 21 medium jumbo, nickel\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eTUNING KEYS: Traditional open-back\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eBRIDGE: Leo Fender-designed G\u0026amp;L Saddle-Lock™\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eELECTRONICS: One volume control for each pickup, master tone\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003e\u003cb\u003eReviews\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003e\u003cb\u003eShipping\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eShipping Policy\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eFlipside Music ships items within 2 days of purchase.

Product Description

Maximum quantity available reached.

G&L Guitars Tribute Series JB-2 Bass Sunburst Maple Neck

This is a Demo model, has some scuffing and shows signs of slight wear. Plays and sounds ecellent.

The G&L JB-2 is all about refinement, blending “holy grail” Alnico single-coil tone with modern Leo Fender improvements.

 

Sku: GL-JB2-3TB
Vendor: G&L Guitars

While the pickups are the origin of the tone, the JB-2 will surprise you with a clarity and sustain unmatched by old basses with their rudimentary bridge design. The JB-2 features an innovative G&L Saddle-Lock™ bridge to transfer string energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument. If you’re ready to let go of the past but still love that classic Alnico tone, get your hands on a JB-2 and experience a brilliant mash-up of old-school and new-school Leo. Once you play a G&L Tribute Series, you’ll never look back.

The JB-2’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. Gagon found his inspiration reviewing original prints stored in Leo Fender’s private laboratory at G&L, but that was just the start. About 30 years ago, Gagon was an R&D engineer at another company when he was tasked with finding out what was so special about the early bolt-on basses many players raved about. Gagon tirelessly analyzed many examples of what were considered holy grail basses, spending time out on the shop floor talking to builders still working in the pickup department since the ‘50s, all on a quest to discover where the real mojo was – and wasn’t. What he learned from the builders matched his own engineering analysis. You see, back in the day, the actual spec of pickups coming down that old production line varied considerably. That meant coming up with the right specs was more challenging than simply following the prints, and Gagon’s persistence paid off as the JB-2 serves up delicious, classic tone.
