This bass like all tribute models has USA made pickups designed by Leo Fender. This is a professional grade bass that is well made and has a string through body that gives you lots of sustain and low end. This bass can hold up to the riggers of regular gigging and delivers tone and playability that you deserve!
When Leo Fender launched the G&L SB-2 bass in 1982, he packed his latest innovations in pickup and bridge design into a straightforward, hard-working bass. If you prefer a less-is-more aesthetic but hunger for something meatier, the SB-2 is just the ticket.
The SB-2 starts with a familiar shape, though subtle modifications to its sculpting make it more sleek and balanced. Strap it on and it immediately feels at home, yet somehow more comfortable than you expected. The slim, C-shaped neck falls immediately to hand, checking in with a modern 12" radius and its 22 medium-jumbo nickel frets ready to deliver silky playability.
Once the SB-2 has nestled into your comfort zone, it's time to experience just how far Leo has improved the classic duo of split-coil and single coil pickups. You see, these Magnetic Field Design™ interpretations were created by Leo to give you more gusto without losing detail and finesse. A simple dual-volume control setup allows you to strike any balance between the two, even backing off both volumes to dial in a more vintage flavor. What's more, the SB-2 features an innovative Leo Fender-designed Saddle-Lock™ bridge to transfer string energy right into the body's end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument.
The Tribute Series SB-2 brings the magic of Leo's own reinterpretation of the P/J configuration, all at a price attainable for every working musician. Once you play a G&L Tribute Series, you'll never look back.
This beauty comes in the Bordeaux Red Metallic finish over basswood, a pearl pickguard, clear satin neck finish, and rosewood fingerboard.
