    Here are a couple of special order G&L's that arrived today... both of which promptly departed. These were both special orders, so they were sold before they even got here. :hyper:

    The LB-100 is a neat wrinkle, that's a "new for 2013" model that I had never seen before today. Very cool, it's basically G&L's take on a P-bass.

    LB-100 update = I LOVE this bass. The passive tone circuit is perfect for my tastes. A little goes a LITTLE way, so you've got lots of rotation before all the highs are gone. I wish I had time to peek in the control cavity, but this bass needs to get shipped. Bummer. I'll be picking G&L's brain soon for details, I suspect.

    I had to do it. I've got an LB-100 on order for my store stock now. 3 Tone Sunburst, RW board, tort guard, vintage tint satin neck finish. Should be here in 2-3 months.

    I didn't know that white pickup covers were available for the MFD's.

    G&L initially balked at doing them... until my customer pointed out that the pickups in white covers were available in G&L's online store. LOL - that got them to concede and allow it. Victory!! :D

    Yeppers, those are USA made. I stopped stocking the Tribute stuff several years ago when it got to be not such an obviously good deal. I'll still special order Tributes, I just don't hang a bunch on the wall like I used to do.

    What does the LB-100 look like without the pickguard? Is the body all routed out like a P bass?

    I would assume so... certainly where the pots are, anyway. I didn't pop the pickguard, though, so I can't say for certain.

    Of course G&L puts out basses with white pickup covers. This one was not a custom order, the guy that bought it new just walked into a store and bought it off the rack.

    Yeah, the LB-100 is a beautiful thing. I searched for, and tried out a lot of "Fender P's", for about a year and a half before I came across this 1999 G&L. I snapped it up immediately. The tone, and build quality are just fantastic. This is a P as a P should be!

    The only difference that I can see between mine and the new ones is the six bolt neck attachment. Mine has the three bolt micro tilt adjustment setup.

    And the best part is that I got this one for a ridiculous price.
