G&L Tribute Series JB-2 4-String Bass Guitar - 3 Tone Sunburst. Players fond of the old adage if it aint broke havent played a JB-2. You see, the G&L JB-2 is all about refinement, blending holy grail Alnico single-coil tone with modern Leo Fender improvements. The JB-2s 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 Fenders 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. 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 Gagons persistence paid off as the JB-2 serves up delicious, classic tone. 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.
You see, 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 youre 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, youll never look back. Pickups: 2x G&L Alnico Single Coil Pickups.
