    For those who felt Ed Friedland's review was a little sterile. Here's one that is anything but.
    This is my kind of sound it kills IMHO.

    Disclaimer:
    I am a huge fan of Ed's playing and reviews. Absolutely no disrespect of his virtuosity and experience.
    I'm just an old school FAT lover.

    Great bass in either review.

    Well, the Ampeg amp doesn't hurt in the Fat department.:D

    The LB-100 is definitely on my list. I just can't decide which color.

    Ed added some Flats on his and posted the video- as fat as can be.

    Slick sounding bass, with some very defined upper register chord availability. I like the clarity I'm hearing with the tone rolled off especially. It's real pretty, too.

    These really are some phenomenal basses! I've actually added one to my personal collection and it gets as much playing time as my Sadowsky! The LB-100 seems to have a wider frequency response than an Am Std Fender P bass and the pickup is slightly overwound compared to the Fender which, to me, allows this bass to sit in a mix perfectly. I threw a set of La Bella medium gauge flats on my LB-100 and it kills! I've hooked a bunch of TB customers up with custom orders as well as some in-stock LB-100s and everybody has given it two thumbs up. I haven't heard a single negative review of these basses, to be honest with you. I've also noticed some P-basses can have a tendency to get a bit muddy as you turn the tone knob down, but with this one, it rolls the highs off but continues to leave your tone punchy, tight, and focused. I really can't say enough about this bass. Of everything we have available here at the shop, I decided to go with this for my own personal collection. I gig out 3-4 times a week and anytime I'm not using the Sadowsky J bass, I'm rocking my G&L LB-100.

    Cheers,
