NBD: G&L LB-100!!!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by bravesaint5, Mar 22, 2014.

  1. It seems there have been a few of these on here lately, so I'll throw mine in the mix.

    First off, the folks at MusicStoreLive.com were awesome! They hooked me up with a great deal, had great communication, and made sure everything was perfect. Not to mention that the dude who hooked me up is a fellow TBer.

    Now to the bass. I am in love. This bass is so solid, quick, growly, and beautiful I just can't put it down. The tobacco burst finish displays the swamp ash grain just beautifully, the rosewood grain pattern on the fingerboard is unbelievable, and the quarter sawn neck was absolutely worth it. This beauty is going to get a LOT of use!

    Now for the pics:

    How does it compare to a fender in your opinion.

    A bit lighter, pickups have a bit more mid range, neck is similar modern "c", and quality is Perfect, as are most Fenders, post 2008 IMO.

    And Fender being my favorite bass, the above says a lot for me.

    Highly recommended:bassist:

    Very cool, I have never tried out a g&l bass(I have a 2012 American p) but I guess I should to see what it's like.

    Nice looking bass. Cool wood on the neck. Congrats!
  10. I can only compare it to a American Deluxe P and a American Std J, but this blows them both out of the water in terms of playability and quality. It has a 6-bolt neck pocket, so it's incredibly solid (almost neck-thru solid). The fingerboard is incredibly fast, but then again I feel at home on a P neck (but a J-style neck is available through order).

    With the wife and baby both at home, I haven't been able to open up my amp yet. But it's got that old fender p-bass growl while having a really full sound. And rolling the tone completely off doesn't make it as murky as my fenders usually do. Read Ed Friedland's review for a better tonal description than I could ever give. He loves his.

    I got this bass on order and cost me a few hundred less than a similarly speced fender. So it's an incredible value.
