If you’re a fan of the classic Fender Jazz bass tone, here’s a very good quality G&L Tribute for a nice price. It’s called the JB-2 in reference to the Jazz Bass it’s based upon. The similarities are certainly there: dual single coil Alnico pickups, same alder body with offset waist, 22-fret maple neck with nickel jumbo frets and good quality vintage open-back tuners. There are also some enhancements from the original Jazz including 6-screw neck attachment and Leo Fender-designed G&L Saddle-Lock bridge. This bridge is tone enhancing, much like a Leo Quan, is fully adjustable, and will last much longer than a vintage Jazz bridge and saddles. This bass sounds very good and plays fantastic with a new set of flatwound strings for the vintage tone and low string noise. A new one will set you back $449 without a case or gigbag. Get this one for just $315 with a quality G&L gigbag.
