NEW bass day G & L USA Jazz bass *pic's added*

Recommended Posts

Ok I know,I'll post some pics when I can 😁
Just been to see Drew at GBBL to trade my stingray classic for his beautiful USA G&L JB.
Finished in 3tsb/rosewood + tort'
By 'eck it's lovely,So easy to play compared to the stingray & sounds really good.
They really nailed that vintage J bass tone & the build quality is exemplary,I mean it's perfect.
Can't wait to get home a play with it (I may even play my bass too 😁)
So chuffed

Congratulations, can't wait to see the pics. Drew sold me my lb100 a few months back and I can't put it down still!

lovely. Love my old L1000 and are craving for a better Jazz Bass.
How is the neck profile on those compared to a Fender American Professional (which I feel very confy with)?

The red one
I remember drooling over that bass,I was frantically trying to sell my double bass at the time so I could buy it.
Congrats to you on your lovely bass

Hi I've never played a fender american professional so I can't compare,sorry.
It is a very nice neck though,G&L #8,it reminds me of an overwater jazz bass I had a while back.( except the G&L has a perfect body to neck joint,unlike the shoddy amateurish one on the overwater "hand made" bass)

Thank you. She's on holiday with me now, we're merrily playing through standing in the shadows of Motown again. Agree about the neck joint on G&Ls, that's one of the first things I noticed picking it up. And after hearing a will lee performance the other day I have GAS for a jb now.

Just got back in from rehersal & my word this thing kicks ass,where some jazz basses can sound a little thin this baby has a really meaty punch,you'd almost think it was active.
For me it just blows my old stingray classic away & I can now hear every note I play,including the G string.
Happy me.

I'll try & post some pics tomorrow evening

lovely. just wonder why they removed the neck tilt mechanism from the newer basses. It was a really nice feature

Sacrificed for a more stable neck joint.
