G&L launched the G&L SB-2 bass in 1982 and is their take on Fender's classic Precision/Jazz pickup bass design. It is similar to their SB-1 model except has P/J pickup configuration (split-coil pickup plus a single coil pickup).

The SB-2 has a familiar body shape, although with subtle sculpting making it more sleek and balanced. It has good feel thanks to a slim, C-shaped neck profile with a modern 12" fretboard radius and  21 Plek-finished medium-jumbo nickel frets.

The SB-2 has Magnetic Field Design pickups and a Leo Fender-designed Saddle-Lock bridge. The SB-2 is made in Leo Fender’s historic G&L facility on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, and is available with a wide range of custom options including body and neck woods, body and neck finishes, neck profiles and pickguard materials.
