G&L Reissues LB-100 Bass

GL LB 100 Bass in 3 Tone Sunburst

G&L has reintroduced the LB-100, a bass they describe as a “subtle evolution of the p-style platform.” Originally released two decades ago, the bass features a streamlined alder body for improved comfort and balance.

The new LB-100 retains the tone of its predecessor thanks to an accurate recreation of its Alnico V pickup, which is wound in house, as well as the company’s Saddle Lock bridge. Its medium jumbo frets are processed by PLEK. Other features include a hard rock maple neck, a rosewood or maple fingerboard, and custom G&L “Ultra-Lite” tuners with aluminum tapered string posts.

The G&L Guitars LB-100 is made in Fullerton, California and ships with a deluxe hardshell tolex case. It’s available now with a street price around $1,400. For more info, check out the G&L Guitars website.
