Leo Fender became a world-renowned icon in the world of music for his guitar and bass manufacturing techniques, and today G&L is proud to continue his legacy by constructing the finest bass guitars on the globe. At the G&L factory, a passionate team of skilled luthiers can be found building instruments with respect to the vision of their legendary founder. Just take a look through this section and you'll clearly see how dedicated G&L is to constructing bass guitars for every taste and budget.
From semi-hollow and fretless basses to classic 4-strings and even 5-stringed models, G&L's bass guitar selection is jam-packed. Of course, the right one for you will depend on what kind of sound you're looking for and what best reflects your personality. For instance, if you're looking for a bass that combines the best aspects of models from the '60s with today's technology, turn your attention to the Tribute JB2 4-String Electric Bass. Featuring "holy grail" Alnico single-coil tone and a G&L Saddle-Lock bridge to transfer string energy right into the body end-gain, the JB-2 truly is a mash-up of old-school and new-school Leo.
Another example of G&L's innovation can be found in the Semi-Hollow ASAT Bass. From its blue-burst colored body and rosewood fretboard to its Ultra-Lite Tuners, Magnetic Field humbucking pickups, Tri-Tone active/passive electronics and much more, this bass looks as impressive as it sounds. Or, if you're in the market for a 5-string, check out the Tribute L2500 5-String Electric Bass Guitar. When the original 4-string L-2000 was unleashed on the world in 1980, working musicians praised it for its playability and tone. Today, the L-2500 continues the L-2000s legacy by packing all of the same features of the original into a killer 5-string, and the results are phenomenal.
As you can see, it's really no wonder why artists ranging from Warrant's Jerry Dixon to Aerosmith's Tom Hamilton showcase their talents with G&L bass guitars. Trusted since 1979, G&L is proud of everything they design, and a bass model for you is waiting to be discovered right here in this catalog.
