G&L Interceptor Introduction and Specs
Regular production of the futuristic G&L Interceptor Bass began in March 1984.The angular body shape and headstock were geared toward the big hair, heavy metal bands of the 1980's as well as complimenting the X-body Interceptor guitars.Despite is unique styling, the G&L Interceptor Bass did not have unique electronics and it simply borrowed the pickup and circuit from the El Toro bass.Some Interceptor Basses were equipped with L-2000 circuitry and El Toro pickups, but these are rather uncommon.
