Detailed Description

G & L USA JB 4 String Bass Guitar - Quartersawn RW - 3 Tone Sunburst

Players fond of the old adage "if it aint broke" havent 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 JBs 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. 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 that 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 serves up delicious, classic tone.
