G&L JB-2 bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by pesci1313, Jun 14, 2001.


  1. Anyone played or have any opinions about this bass? It doesn't have all the pickup options of the L-2000 is my biggest downer with it. What one would you guys prefer, the L-2000 or JB2?

    I think the preference might come down to what sounds you want. I would *really* like to try a JB-2, but I haven't seen them anywhere. It must be because they are G&L's most recent bass offering.

    I would wager the L-2000 is more versatile due to the pickup configuration and electronics. I bet the JB-2 would have a nice jazz sound though. There have been several posts where people asked about the JB-2, but it seems no one has been able to try one out yet. :(

    None of the stores around me carry any G&L stuff either, so that's a bummer. G&L should try to broaden their distribution IMO. They definitely hold their own vs. other basses in their price range.
