G&L Guitars Introduces Pine Body Fullerton Deluxe JB-5 Bass
G&L Guitars has added a new JB-5 to their Fullerton Deluxe lineup that will feature a Western Sugar Pine body. The move is in part tribute to founder Leo Fender, whose first instruments were built with pine.
“The latest is the JB-5, Leo Fender’s final iteration of the bass player’s favorite with added low B range,” they write. “The Western Sugar Pine body is light, well balanced, and resonant. Partnered with Leo’s G&L Alnico V pickups and Saddle Lock bridge it creates a package of superior tone, sustain, and versatility.”
The bass will come in two variations: an Old School Tobacco Sunburst finish with a Caribbean Rosewood fingerboard or a Himalayan Blue finish with a maple fingerboard. They will be shipping soon for $1,799.99.
