1997 G&L USA Fullerton SB-2 Bass Black Silver Swirl PJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1997 G&L SB-2 in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order.  A USA-made iteration of the SB-2 platform, this full scale PJ Bass features a gloss Black Silver Swirl finish.

As the third instrument company founded by Leo Fender, G&L's instruments benefit from Leo's decades of experience at Music Man and (of course) Fender. Tonewoods include an alder body, maple neck, and slab rosewood fingerboard. With a pair of Volume knobs governing the MFD (Magnetic Field Design) pickup pair, the bass delivers the broad thump and authority of the split coil P pickup, with plenty of power and midrange fullness from the bridge pickup which has more breadth and power than a traditional J single coil. Weighing 9lbs 3oz, this SB-2 has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 45-100 roundwound strings, comfortable action, and spot-on intonation.
