The JB-2 Legion

Postby plankspanker13 » Tue Oct 13, 2009 10:47 pm

After getting off to a healthy start in the final days of the G&L-sponsored forum at TB, we're gonna find a home for the Legion here at "BBL," if I may be the first to gloss the new forum by the initials in this, the very first G&L Basses Forum post not by Ken Baker.

The JB-2 is nothing less than the evolution of the J-bass; the passive J that goes to 11, and sports sensible "P" ergonomics for the playing hand, while retaining the playability of the #8 "J" neck. The ultimate jazz bass is getting the Rodney Dangerfield treatment among the MFD hardcores, and perhaps rightfully so, in the subjective opinions of many. Those of us who adore the ultimate refinement of the J that is both classic and modern will not be taken lightly! The JB-2 Legion shall set forth to spread the last chapter of the passive gospel of Leo to the uninitiated, one bassist at a time. Who's with me?

So other than body shape, pickguard and finish options, are there mechanical differences between the JB and JB-2?

The electronics are the same, and the JB neck is a mere 20 frets (high E-flat in standard tuning) to the 21 found on the JB-2.
