New Web Site & Lack of Finishes

Postby Jammin4Jesus » Fri Feb 02, 2018 3:46 pm

New website is up! Seems that a lot of previous finishes are not available, i.e. Clear Blue. Hopefully it's just me not being able to navigate the site correctly.

I actually just logged on here to see if anyone posted about that and I'm going to get in touch with a friend of mine who's a dealer tomorrow. I was thinking about ordering an LB100 in Fullerton Red and the option seems to be gone. I have a feeling it's a mistake because black is also missing among many others - who would discontinue black?

I bet they're still building out the new site, because several classic finishes are missing, and a couple of the newly announced Tribute models (JB and LB-100) aren't on there yet.

Oh, oh, oh I had called and spoken with G&L rep 5-6 weeks ago who told that it was still available; however, when I went to order my new bass the rep told me that it wasn't. I was really bummed.

Yeah, I'm afraid that the discontinued colors are only available on a "while supplies last" basis. For instance, I was told a couple weeks back that I could still order Spanish Copper Metallic. But there will come a point where they use the last drop of each of these colors, and they won't be buying more...
