GB Innovations in bass guitar design and Electronics
by Bernie Goodfellow
My basses are the result of decades of experience as a professional bass player and almost as many years as a builder of basses. I have learned from listening to the problems and preferences of fellow musicians and the criticisms and compliments of basses I've made. During my career as a bass guitar builder (luthier) I have spent a fantastic amount of time and money on research and development. On new designs and innovations in construction and electronics, to improve the durability, aesthetics, playability and ultimately the sound of my basses.
Partner my experience as a musician and a luthier with the expertise of Dick Straker, the electronics master at GB, and the basses that evolve are loaded with original, innovative designs that use current electronics technology to the max. No other basses sound like a GB, because we design and build our own electronics. No other basses have a 'Pulse' (a battery condition indicator) - fitted as standard since 1999 - remarkable, when you consider how many active basses are out there. No other basses have optional extras that include the best sound-to-light system available, the "G-Spot" (built-in tuner) and the "Kick-Drum" (built-in metronome).
GB guitars are the best basses in the world with unique features that have been researched, developed and made by GB Guitars and are totally exclusive to us.
My innovations have become or are becoming industry standard.
