Up for sale, a 2019 G&L Fullerton Deluxe LB-100 in exceptional condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case, COA, and build sheet. As the third instrument company founded by Leo Fender, G&L's instruments benefited from Leo's decades of experience at Music Man and (of course) Fender. Produced at the same Fullerton, CA factory as the early Music Man guitars, the G&L LB-100 made its debut over two decades ago as a subtle evolution of the Precision Bass platform. With a slightly streamlined body shape for improved comfort and balance, the LB-100 also introduced G&L's Saddle Lock bridge for richer note definition and sustain.
The Alnico V split-coil humbucking pickup offers traditional Precision Bass thump and roundness, accentuating the subtle growl and great articulation of a fresh set of 45-100 strings. The bass features a traditional tonewood compliment, weighing 8lbs 14oz with an alder body, maple neck, and thick slab rosewood fretboard. We've had this G&L professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, dialed in with low action and spot-on intonation.
The maple neck has G&L's Medium C profile carve with generous shoulder and lightly rolled fretboard edges, measuring .805" deep at the 1st fret and .950" at the 12th. On the Caribbean rosewood slab fretboard, the medium jumbo frets are flawless, playing cleanly up the 34" scale with a straight neck and optimally adjusted truss rod. The nut measures 1 5/8" in width, and the headstock features G&L's Ultra-Lite chrome-plated tuners with clover buttons and aluminum tapered string posts.
The simple electronics function as intended, and the hardware includes the pair of knurled knobs and Saddle Lock bridge design. The Fullerton Red finish is G&L's spin on Fender's classic Fiesta Red custom color, accented by a dark reddish brown tortoise pickguard that still retains the original protective clear factory film over the tort. Cosmetic wear is limited to a few dings on the body parameter, and faint vertical finish checking, almost exclusively on the back. The neck profile is flawless.
The G&L Deluxe black tolex hardshell case is included, along with the COA and build sheet.
