Fullerton Deluxe JB•5

In the decade since G&L began offering bassists a made-in-Fullerton jazz style bass, the G&L JB has delighted players with classic Alnico tones served up with more attack and sustain thanks to its G&L Saddle Lock bridge designed by Leo Fender. Today, the Fullerton Deluxe JB•5 applies this formula to a five-string platform with an easy-playing neck featuring 1.750″ nut width and slim rear profile for enhanced comfort.

The Fullerton Deluxe JB•5 projects a time-honored yet subtly progressive vibe, embracing the past yet unafraid of moving forward. The slim, hard-rock maple neck features an easy-playing satin finish, while its comfortable 9 1/2″ radius and Jescar 57110 medium-jumbo nickel-silver frets deliver silky playability. Its Leo Fender-designed Saddle-Lock™ bridge to transfer string energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument.

 Available in:

• Old School Tobacco Sunburst over Western Sugar Pine, Caribbean Rosewood Fingerboard, Clear Satin neck finish
• Himalayan Blue over Western Sugar Pine, Maple Fingerboard, Clear Satin neck finish
