FS/FT: GL Tribute JB-2 and Gamma Beta Fretless
I have been buying, selling, and trading on here a fair amount recently as a way to try new basses and figure out what I like. One thing I figured out is that I don't like jazz basses :crying:. Another is that I love the sound of a good P bass :bassist:. So, I'm offloading my two jazz style basses to get a P style bass. I'm open to trades for any P style basses and have cash I can put into the deal for the right bass. I am not a huge Fender fan, but don't hate them either. I'm looking at G&L (or Tribute) SB-1/SB-2/LB-100, Schecter Model T, or other similar basses. I need at least 18mm spacing at the bridge and 4 strings. I like jazz width necks, but wider isn't a deal breaker. If you have anything else interesting, the worst I can do is say no ;)
First up, my Gamma Beta fretless in Navajo Orange. I traded for this bass about 5 months ago and love the way it plays. So much so that I ordered a Gamma Alpha fretless with the same neck. Since I got my Alpha, the Beta has been hanging on the wall collecting dust. So, off it goes to a new home. It is super light weight (bathroom scale puts it at 7.2lbs)! Neck is a thin jazz style 1.5" at the nut and thin front to back with an ebanol fingerboard. It is in great condition, with one ding on the edge near the jack that the previous owner says happened during shipping to him. It also has some of the typical marks on the fingerboard that fretless basses tend to get. It is currently strung with GHS Pressure wounds, but I could swap them for Chromes or what I think are DR flats.
Asking $350 shipped west of the Mississippi, another $25 to ship farther east. --SOLD--
Next up is a G&L Tribute JB-2 in bust finish. I'm sure there's a scratch on it somewhere, but I can't find one. Plays great, not too heavy (8lbs on the bathroom scale). It has the #8 neck that comes standard on these which is a bit thicker than a Fender jazz neck, but is still 1.5" at the nut. I haven't bothered to take great pictures of it because it is easy to find stock ones online, but let me know if you want better pics and I'll take them. Asking
$350 $325 shipped west of the Mississippi and an extra $25 farther east.

I just found a small finish ding on the end of the head stock on the G&L. Can't find any other marks on it though!

Dang't. Just when I don't have any $$. Had a wireless system that I could trade and some $$. Let me know if it falls through.

I have the same Gamma Bass in Navajo Orange in a fretted version and I'm hoping to sell it to pick up an Alpha as well. Weird, huh? Joe makes some sweet basses.

He really does make some sweet basses. The only reason I decided not to get a fretted Alpha is because I don't like to have the same bass in fretted and fretless versions. I just want something a bit different, so I have a G&L SB-1 on the way. The Alpha fretless is one of my two favorite basses I've ever owned. The other was a trans-green L-2000 I bought new in 1996. I never should have sold that bass.

Price drop on the JB-2. $325 shipped west, $350 east.

If it will sweeten the deal, I'll ship in a nice G&L gig bag!

Bump for the long weekend. It's my wife's birthday, buy my bass so I can buy her a present!
