Player's Perspective

The LB-100 made its debut some 20 years ago. The idea is simple: It's a slightly upgraded version of a tried and true design with slightly more output than its vintage predecessors. Designed by Paul Gagon using the finest examples of P-basses from Fender's glory years (the 60's), this bass is meant to remind you of the sounds you grew up with, while providing a bit more body and character to the notes. Picture the familiarity and ease of its ancestor, but with improved comfort and balance, better note definition and longer sustain. Organic and direct, the sound is the perfect one-size-fits-all bass tone. Lay low beneath everything and hold the groove, or step out and cut through the mix with that subtle upper-mid growl. The body carve contours nicely to your body, encouraging multi-hour practice and playing sessions. G&L has dialed in the fretboard just right. You can expect a smooth ride all the way up with a balanced and breathable neck feel. This is the perfect bass for anyone who plays several styles of music and needs a reliable bass that'll hold up and sound great night after night.

Item Details

The G&L USA LB-100 features an alder body with a royal purple finish - flashy and fly but not gaudy. The maple neck is carved to G&L's #12 neck shape, which is basically a modern medium "C" shape. The fretboard is maple as well, and it has 21 medium jumbo PLEK-dressed frets, a 9.5" radius and mother of pearl dot inlays that look really cool against the maple fretboard. Electronically, you'll find a G&L LB-100 Alnico V split-coil humbucking pickup. Wound in house, this pickup is all about rich, balanced and simple tone that blends well and EQs easily. The bridge is a G&L Saddle Lock with chrome-plated brass saddles. Other features include custom G&L "Ultra-Lite" tuners with aluminum string posts and an understated 1-ply black pickguard. American-made quality usually comes in at double this price. A great bass American-made bass at a great price.
