My new, golden, G&L LB-100!

  1. Hey dudes,

    my new (NOS) 1993/1994 G&L LB-100 arrived last week. I ordered it through MetroGnomeMusic's eBay Store; my first order in the USA (I live in Belgium).

    Take a look at the pictures from the auction... I'll take some pics myself really soon. I've never seen this gold finish before. It's not a 'flake' finish but more somekinda 'sparkle'. Quite rare I think? No?

    Anyways, this isn't my first G&L. I also play a very nice L-2000. Because I always play the neck pickup in my band, I wanted to try a Precision-type bass. Well this LB-100 sounds really thick. I love the sound. Not very versatile but I love the 'one' sound it delivers... Punch and big bottom. Less hot and aggressive than the L2K but still powerful.

    The neck-feel is quite similar to the L-2000. Although the sides of the frets on the LB-100 stick out a little more. Goldie has some noise problems though. There's always this constant hum... how come? Bad shielding?

    G&L didn't shield the LB-100 at all back in the 90s. That color was called Gold Metallic and I love it - congrats! They discontinued that color right after the JB model was introduced, I ordered one that color.

  6. Hello Bart. G&L does not shield their basses. So a good luthier can put copper shielded tape to get rid of the human. You have a very Beautiful bass here!

    Wow that is gorgeous and looks better than new. I would re-hydrate the bass before you get the file out here's a quick way.
