The SB-2 electric bass guitar is a high-quality rhythm-maker with a nice, sleek design with a deep cutaway on the lower horn for grooving along the lower frets. Wood-wise, it features an alder body and hard rock maple neck which creates nice even tones. To capture the beautiful tones that jump off the woods, it's equipped with G&L Magnetic Field split coil humbucking pickups in the center position with a G&L Magnetic Field single coil in the bridge position. A G&L Saddle-Lock bridge maintains resonance as you work your way through your favorite passages and transfers some of the string vibration energy directly to the core of the body for much better sustain. The SB2 bass guitar also features chrome hardware, a 3-ply pickguard, and custom G&L Ultra-Lite tuning keys with aluminum tapered string posts, and a G&L molded hardcase included.

Comments about G&L SB-2 Bass Guitar:
G&L may be the best kept secret for basses & electric guitars. It was Leo Fender's last company when he died. Their American made stuff is so much better than anyone else's and for less money. I've had their Tribute models too and they rival some American made basses as well. Controls are simple on the SB-2. No tone, just 2 volume knobs. One for each pickup. The bass comes with round wounds on it but they were too bright for me. I put D'Addario flat wound Chromes on it & the tone is right where I want it. Just a personal preference. The quality of these basses is just head & shoulders above the rest. I get many compliments on the sound & look of my SB-2. Mine differs from what you may get here because it was a custom order. Mine is a swamp ash body with an ebony fretboard on a quartersawn neck. If you are considering any American made bass, please check out G&L! I believe they are the best bang for your buck. If you do go custom, their choices of colors & woods are awesome. Fender Custom Shop can't even compete, in my opinion.
