About this deal

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

G&L instruments in general are really well built. I'm not much of a bass player, so can't really say I've played any of their basses. £299 is significantly cheaper than other offers that are around at the moment and there's a couple of choices for the finish right now. The shell pink one is on back order with no solid date.

At A Glance
The G&L Tribute JB-2 in 3 Tone Sunburst is a refined version of a classic. True to the innovative vision of Leo Fender, G&L allowed him to explore many ideas he had been thinking about for decades. Paul Gagon, VP of Engineering at G&L shares in this same passion and has helped to make this bass really stand out from others. Its pickups would be at home on a bass at three times the price and they make it an excellent choice for almost any style of music.

Features We Love:

Bolt-On Construction
With 6 screws securing the neck to the body, the Tribute JB-2 has a seriously reliable construction. It also helps with resonance and gives that classic look and feel that bassists across all genres love.

G&L Pickups
Armed with a pair of G&L Alnico single coil pickups, the Tribute JB-2 have a very strong 60's influence on their sound. From looking at original prints that belonged to Leo Fender, Paul Gagon was able to instill some of that magic into the tones of these pickups. With heaps of clarity and low end sustain, you'll be impressed by how much these can do.

G&L Saddle Lock Bridge
The Saddle-Lock Bridge is another fantastic Leo Fender innovation, featuring a set of small screws at either side of the bridge for secure anchoring, this cultivates the string resonance as one single mass and directs the energy into the grain of the wood. This not only improves the overall tone of the JB-2 but really lets those lower bass notes come through with power.

    We do see good see good deals over Black Friday, but I think in general, the deals are pretty great all year round.

    I've not seen anything wild over BF, most of the best deals just crop up from time to time. I must have posted 60 odd in the last few years, as a guess.

    I'm normally checking daily anyway

    I have a G&L L2500 tribute.
    Fantastic sounding and solid build.

    I did have to make a neck shim to "perfect" the action, after reading a comment from a G&L rep saying that the company recommends a shim but doesn't fit them at the factory because people complained when they did!

    Unfortunately I play bass like a guitarist. Too many notes, not necessarily in the right order.
