G&L Tribute Bass

A Versatile Yet Affordable Bass Guitar: The Ibanez SR300 Series

A great example of the line, this SR-300E is stunning in its Navy Planet Matte finish! Playing an SR300 is comfortable and won't break your back - even after a long gig - because of its slimmer neck, lighter body, and overall sleek design. It's easy to dial in the right tone for any style with its advanced yet simple-to-use selector knobs.

Be Different - Stand Out

Want a different sound from the typical Strat, Tele, or Les Paul? Take a look at the G&L Tribute Doheny. The interesting body shape along with the two wide bobbin M.F.D pickups shows that G&L built this guitar with surf rock in mind but would also be well suited for other genres like indie rock.
