    Just picked up this G&L SB2 Tribute. I was skeptical about the neck at first because I prefer P bass necks but this thing is MADE for me! Absolutely love the song and feel. I really don't have any qualms about this bass yet and people tend to complain mainly about the lack of a tone control but 2 knobs is my max before I get irritated so honestly I prefer it this way.

    Neither had I until I found this small music shop that happened to be a G&L dealer. The owner gave me a great price and I had to take it!

    the P only has one tone knob, that's all you need :)

    I figured that 2 is probably ideal if you have two pickups and more than enough if you have one, unless you play something other than rock lol

    I had an American SB2. It was as good as any Fender I ever played. I would love to have it back. Money issues caused its sale about 8 years ago.
    Another will be my next bass. I just don't know how the tribute compares to the American in wood, tone, electronics, etc. Post back after you've played it a while and tell us what you think.
    And, if you decide it isn't for you, I will gladly take it off your hands and provide you a Squier VM so you are not without axe.
  14. Really nice bass, congrats! I'm interested in how it sounds too.

    The SB-2 does not have any tone knob! Just two volume knobs...I would have to mod a tone control on that puppy.

    The contour is really comfortable, just as good as a Fender P, maybe even better.

    Funny thing! My Squier VM is now my backup bass! I've been playing it all day and I cannot find a single flaw, it seems to be near perfect.
