G&L fans, I have three G&Ls and my lb-100 just doesn’t get enough love. It’s 7.3 lbs and now listed in the classifieds. For Sale - G&L LB100 (P bass) 7.3 lbs. $975 shipped
Man that looks familiar...my 2013 Yukon Gold SB-2...
AND with tort!!!!!!
Hey G&L lovers, here is my new special order LB-100
. Here are pics from Wolfe Guitar. Will be shipped to me tomorrow. I will not breath until it gets here. Dying, ok, just small breaths.
My next bass will be an LB-100, 1.5" nut, rosewood fingerboard, satin tint neck finish. Haven't decided on body color/finish yet. @red7flag - that's beautiful!!
My SB-2 and Kiloton are both 9.5" radius. I love the feel of those necks but am wondering what a 12" radius would feel like and how it would affect my comfort and playing. I'll probably hop out to Watermellon Music in Davis to check out the Tributes they have with 12" radii.
Drove down to Austin yesterday to go to a blues jam at a club on 12th st called The Big Easy. My son is learning harp and he likes to go there and listen. He told me it was a fun jam. I decided to take a couple of days off and go visit. It was a good jam and the players were all very friendly and open. There was non of the cliquish, competitive attitude you see at some.
I played for about an hour. I was playing my SB-2T some Ampeg combo, but it was too dark and I couldn't see which model. After about the first 2 or 3 tunes, the BL of the house band got up to introduce the players. He said, "...and on bass, Gravedigger Dave with a tone to kill for." Love that SB-2T. Punch, definition, growl, it has it all. I had the neck pup 100%, the bridge at about 80% (i just sort of turn it up until "it sounds right", and the tone at about 60%. That seems to be the sweet spot for me.
For the last 2 weeks my L2500 has been wearing EB Cobalt Flats.
They are just settling in.
Digging them. I really liked the Cobalt Rounds on it before, but just a little overkill on the top end on the L2500, but broken in they sound phenom on the Dolphin.
The EBCF's really work well on the L2500.
Bright without finger noise, tight bottom solid B that blends well with the rest of the set. High output, dynamic.
They still feel sticky, but smooth.
Absolutely stunningly gorgeous!! Enjoy.
and BTW, thank you for bringing GAS again!!
My Trib LB-100 has certainly amounted to my participation in the "back to the P-bass" movement, but that USA special order is yummy. What's special about it, if I may ask?
My tribute lb-100 arrives tomorrow. I can't wait. I'm part of the same p bass movement.
You know, I used to hate Chromes and now I love them. Took the La Bellas off my new LB-100 this afternoon (the thud was wearing on me) and put on one of the many sets of Chromes that I’d installed and taken off of some previous bass. Sounded good at home...took them out to a loudish cover band rehearsal and the LB-100/Chromes pairing knocked the ball out of the park! What a great combination!
Wanted the red color. 9.5 radius, 1 3/4 traditional P neck. Rosewood fret board. Looking for a traditional P as I have a J and HB.
What color? I could not resist the white one's inlays.
I thought about getting that one as well. I really like block inlays, but I'm not that into white. I got a natural finish model. Can't wait to receive it.
The LB100 has arrived......and it is...... glorious! Haven't played it yet, but the build quality is fantastic. This is my first pure P bass in 27 years of playing.
I spent a few seconds adjusting the string height to where I like it. Plugged it in.
YEP! Still glorious!
Ok, NBD post....
I was on the fence but Wunkay fever got to me.
Checks all the boxes for me.
That great mid/late 80s neck profile
Straight neck with no ski jump
Guessing ‘87-‘89 based on the round lam fingerboard and Leo sig on the headstock, but I’ll tear it apart soon. Just gave it enough of a once-over to make sure she’ll play tonight.
I did give up my Sting Signature Precision for it, but the guy I swapped with feels the same way about Japan Fenders as I do about G&Ls, so everyone’s happy.
Few bumps and bruises up close, but nothing too major. The worst is that the volume pot looks to have taken a hit at some point and cracked the finish and wood around it. Haven’t torn it apart enough to know how much of a repair it had, but it feels stable.
The first word that came out of my mouth when seeing this is not allowed on TB.
So I'll say,
Great looking bass!
I dig the RW/transred look as well.
Had an SR5 like that for a number of years...
until I traded it for a Wunkay.
