Introduced in 2018, the LTD GB-4 offers a set of professional performance tools in an all new, completely cool future-retro design. The GB-4 is completely unique among the LTD series of basses with its powerful and versatile electronics that combine a set of passive Seymour Duncan SSB-4 pickups with Duncan’s STC-3M3 active EQ. You’ll not only be able to sculpt your tone with stacked treble/bass controls and a dedicated midrange control; you also get a push-pull feature on the volume knob that engages the GB-4’s slap switch, a special EQ contour voiced specifically for slap bass. There are even trim pots on the circuit board that can be tweaked to preset the slap EQ contour right where you want it. The sound of this pickup set and preamp electronics is huge… beefy and round, with excellent articulation on the low end (especially great for for bass players who downtune). The GB-4 offers very sturdy 5-bolt construction, with a swamp ash body and maple neck that has killer block inlays on the fingerboard. Pro-quality components include a solid Gotoh bridge with brass saddles that allows for both standard and string-thru-body setups. Its neck profile is slim, allowing for fast, precise performances. For everything from metal to pop to funk and beyond, the LTD GB-4 is ready to handle your best work. Available in Black finish with Pau Ferro fingerboard, or Seafoam Green finish with maple fingerboard.
