G&L Guitars Introduces 35th Anniversary Model Basses

Thirty-five years ago, Leo Fender and George Fullerton teamed up to form G&L Guitars. Now the company is celebrating with a line of 35th Anniversary models including three guitars and two basses: the LB-100 and the M-2000. Each instrument is finished in Emerald Green Metallic, representing the traditional gemstone of the 35th Anniversary, the emerald.

Both basses are built with an alder body, a hard rock maple neck, and a rosewood fingerboard. The LB-100 model features a G&L Alnico V split-coil humbucking pickup and a 3-ply white pearl pickguard. Alternatively, the M-2000 has no pickguard and is fitted with a pair of G&L MFD M-Series humbuckers. It also adds an active 3-band EQ.

The G&L USA 35th Anniversary LB-100 and M-1000 basses will be available soon with prices around $1,499 and $1,649, respectively.
