The 30" scale bass is available in three finishes

G&L have announced the new Fallout Bass, available in three colors and decked out with racing stripes. As they tells us: “This 30” short-scale bass features a G&L Magnetic Field Design humbucking pickup controlled by a three-position mini-toggle switch for parallel/split/OMG modes, bringing anything from modern to old school tones to your fingertips. 

"What’s more, players used to a traditional 34” scale will find this pint-size puncher super easy to play. Other features include an alder body, maple bolt-on neck, Caribbean rosewood fingerboard, saddle-lock bridge and custom G&L Ultra Lite tuners, and La Bella Nickel Roundwound short scale strings." 

The bass is available in:

* British Racing Green with Competition Stripes over alder with Caribbean rosewood fingerboard
