G&L Fallout Bass

Recommended Posts

Ok so I have seen some deals on the G&L Fallout Bass USA made with Gigbag.

Now the big question are they worth the original £1750 price tag. 

Does anyone have one and can recommend either way 

How do they compare in the short scale world

I've owned a number of G&L Tributes - the build quality has been right up there. No idea how they compare to the MIA but they are good basses in their own right.

You do know that they make Fallout Tributes too??

I was just wondering about the £1750 price tag 'quality'

I haven't played a Fallout specifically, but I've owned both USA and Tribute G&Ls and specific 'custom' features such as finishes aside, I struggled to tell the difference between them.

I agree with Jakester. G&L Tributes are exceptionally good for the money. I'd say the comparison between them and US built models is similar to that between Mexican and US built Fenders.

The Tributes are well-made enough that the law of diminishing returns comes into play swiftly and steeply!

Would you consider a usa at £999

Almost half price? Yeah probably, if I were actually in the market for a Fallout that is. Given that Fender are churning out great (albeit Mexican manufactured) short scale basses for under £1k, similar money for a USA G&L feels like a nice deal.

The usual price of £1750 is just too steep in my opinion.
