George Porter, Jr.

George is funky. One of the original architects of funk! His work with “The Meters” is legendary. When we were testing our Glaub model (our P bass) we used Cissy Strutt as the ultimate P bass example.

I started working with George late during my Lakland days. He is fun and easy going. Does not get the credit he deserves. Just listen to the medley that starts Robert Palmer’s first record, “Sneaking Sally Through the Alley”. Perfection! His bass features a natural finish and late 60’s style neck with blocks and binding.
