Unbelievably good Bass!

StuartL, 07.08.2014
I bought this jb2 tribute as a second bass to my g&l sb2, however I have very quickly came to the conclusion that this will now be my primary bass. The pick ups are top notch, allowing a wide range of tones from funky to an almost thumpy Motown sound. The tone pot is very gradual in that it doesn't move instantly from one extreme to the other like other similar basses I've tried, it's very easy to make small adjustments which is critical as I play anything from 60's rock n roll to modern pop in a party band. It has incredible sustain due to the bridge design and I was able to attain a very low action quite easily. The finish, as always on tribute models, is exceptional, flawless. The swamp ash grain is stunning through the translucent finish. The neck is finished very well also, frets are smooth and finished brilliantly. Overall, this bass offers excellent value compared to higher priced alternatives and I challenge anyone not to be satisfied with it. As a lovely touch, thomann included an original photo with the bass as it was the one used for the website images.

Awesome value for money.

Panagiotis B., 28.10.2016
Indonesian-made Jazz Bass, with great quality for it's price tag!
The maple neck is satin finished, narrow (since it's a Jazz Bass) but thick enough to feel good in the hand. The fretwork is pretty excellent, no sharp edges or dead spots.
I am enjoying the massive headstock and the vintage tuners (tune stays just great). The six bolt neck-joint and the BIG, machined-into-the-body bridge, bring all of the bass's balanced character: Every note is smooth and balanced.
The overall tone is not too aggressive (passive pickups) but not too mellow either... with some good overdrive/preamp this bass has a loud voice.
Still, I wouldn't recommend it to players who go for really aggressive, modern styles. This bass has a pretty vintage sound, bold and classic, but nowhere near an active Warwick or Spector... it is not as "loud".
The ash body is really light. The finish is great all-over but still, that said considering the price range.
The electronics, jack, knobs etc are top-notch, sturdy stuff here.
Conclusion: If you are looking for a classic, trust-worthy, well balanced Jazz Bass in this price range, the G&L is no-brainer and on top of that, a quite good-looking instrument.
