This G&L USA "Option-Order" JB model is a stunner, shipping from the factory in Fullerton, CA with a host of features that make this one easy to love. The Jet Black Frost finish adds a textured satin finish that feels great, and looks even cooler! The matching painted headstock, pearl block inlays and 4-ply tortoise set it off by adding an incredibly cool contemporary take on many of the classic vintage aesthetics.
We also ordered this one with a quartersawn neck for stability, and capped the neck off with an ebony fretboard, that both looks great and adds a bit of clarity to the tone. This JB plays so very well - and the TONE... it's everything you'd expect this to be - big, fat, juicy, notes that rumble the gut and punch the chest with clarity far beyond what lesser-quality instruments can produce.
This G&L USA JB finished in Jet Black Frost is brought to you by BCR Music & Sound, Central PA’s premier Authorized G&L Dealer! The photos in this listing are of the actual bass listed for sale here in our store.
