Rich sound with dual JB pickups.

The G&L Placentia JB electric bass features a poplar body, maple fingerboard and dual JB pickups. It was designed for new players looking for a high-quality yet accessible G&L bass.

This JB projects a time-honored and subtly progressive vibe that embraces the past while also being unafraid of moving forward. The slim, hard-rock maple neck features a classic gloss finish, while its comfortable 9" radius and medium-jumbo nickel frets deliver modern playability. What’s more, the JB features an innovative Leo Fender-designed Saddle-Lock bridge to transfer string energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument. Once you play a G&L Tribute Series, you’ll never look back.

The Placentia series is named after the location of G&L Guitars—which sits on historic Fender Avenue, running between Fullerton and the city of Placentia. The series offers iconic G&L designs, as developed by Leo Fender, with the addition of some more traditional parts.
