Looking to change it up a bit and get some new tones since I currently own two Precisions. Found a couple G&L JB-2's locally, one USA made for $800, one 2017 Tribute with a hardshell case for $325. Is the USA model REALLY worth that much more?! I'm not a snob and have owned and currently own instruments made in the USA, MIM, CIJ, etc. My understanding is the pickups are identical, and so is the bridge. The Tribute is a natural finish, so I'm guessing it's swamp ash (that's what the G&L site says) They are located in opposite directions of each other, meaning it would be several hours drive in different directions to check them both out. Thanks in advance for the feedback!
