Fender Japan Telecaster 72 reissue TL72 Black finish ASH body Made in Japan
You are bidding on a very rare G&L (George Fullerton & Leo Fender) SB-2 (First Style) Bass guitar made in 1982. Made in the USA and is a Leo Fender design. A very hard to find instrument. This bass has some knicks and dings and has finish checking and cracks due to its age, but is in overall good shape for a bass pushing 30 years of age with only honest wear. It also give the bass some character. It has that great broken-in feel with a low and fast action that plays like butter. It has deep lows and bright highs that cut through any mix both in and out of the studio. This bass is all original with G&L tuning keys, 3-way pickup switch, volume/tone knobs, Dot inlays, G&L neckplate, G&L bridge, and great G&L style jazz pickups.
No reasonable offers will be declined. So offer early before this bass is gone....
G&L is a guitar design and production company founded by Leo Fender, George Fullerton, and Dale Hyatt in the late 1970s. Fender sold his company, named Fender, in 1965. He designed and produced instruments for Music Man in the 1970s through his company CLF Research. When relations with Music Man soured, G&L was created to continue operations outside of MusicMan. The G&L name comes from the initials of George (Fullerton) and Leo (Fender).
G&L instruments are similar to the classic Fenders, but with some modern innovations. They are built at the same facility on Fender Avenue in Fullerton,CA that produced the early Music Man instruments. G&L instruments are not widely distributed but are highly regarded by many musicians and collectors. The relatively small scale of production further allows for more custom options than are possible on larger production lines.
After the death of Leo Fender in 1991, Fender's wife, Phyllis Fender, passed the management of G&L to John C. McLaren of BBE Sound. George Fullerton remained a permanent consultant until his death on July 4 2009, and Leo's wife Phyllis remains as Honorary Chairman of G&L.
In a print advertisement for G&L, Leo Fender claimed the G&L line of instruments were "the best instruments I have ever made"
This model of G&L bass was made in late 1982 and was produced up until 1984. The "FIRST STYLE" SB-2 had a smaller and non-contour slab style body. This SB-2 is a rare find because they were only made for a couple of years and in very low numbers...so you won't be seeing many of these around.
