Steve Araujo of TheBassHang.com showcases the G&L SB-1, a sleek evolution of the p bass designed by Leo Fender. With Leo’s split-coil MFD pickup, it’s got more punch than a traditional p style pickup. The SB-1 is running through a BBE BMAX-T preamp using the DI out. The Live! At Leo’s studio is located at Leo Fender’s historic G&L factory on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California – The Birthplace Of Bolt-on™.
