Description & Specs

Bassists who are fond of the old adage "if it ain’t broke, don't fix it" clearly haven’t played a G&L JB-2! This rock-solid workhorse instrument from G&L's affordable Tribute Series is all about refinement — taking the iconic J-bass formula and refining it by blending "holy grail" Alnico single-coil tone with modern Leo Fender-designed innovations.

For starters, the JB-2 has a more contemporary "vibe" with its comfortable body shape inspired by G&L's L Series models. The slim Maple neck features a smooth satin finish, while the relatively flat 12" radius and medium-jumbo nickel frets deliver modern playability. What's more, the JB-2 boasts G&L 's acclaimed 'Saddle-Lock' bridge that transfers string energy right into the body for incredible resonance!
