I know nothing about it besides its a Fullerton and is no longer being manufactured. I believe the company is now called G&L. I would like to know a little more about its origins, can someone help?

    Hey @Wedgie25 , I know very little about the company but if it's a very early G&L in a sense, I would take very good care of that instrument. And play it lots of course! I hope someone around here has more info. Welcome to the forum!

    I don't think there's a connection between those two companies. The G in G&L is George Fullerton, but I'm pretty sure they were called G&L from the get go. I believe Fullerton was once Music123's entry level brand.

    From what I read I think @Bassist4Eris is correct. It is a Music 123 brand. But from what I have also read they are considered a nice bass. I'd do what others have suggested, have some fun and play the heck out of it.... .here's another pic I found of one that looks just like yours

    Fun how the bridge plate of the Fullerton has been bolted to the body.

    Only four screws, of which two don't really matter.

    Here's the more common solution with five screws, as found on a Fender P-Bass. The bridge should be in optimal contact with the body. Strings are pulling it towards the neck, so screws at the back of the plate are most effective. The front is being pushed down anyway.

    Yes they are 32" probably because he came from the Kubickis to these.

    I 'd really like to try one of those. Shouldn't be too expensive too. It would need some trial and error to find the best strings for that scale.

    Yep people, it's a 32" scale.
    Body is way scaled down (bit too much if you ask me) so it's really light. But it also feels a little bit like a toy, and i'm not even that big.

    Don't really care for Stu as a player, but this bass is funky. His other signature Fender is way cool too.
