FS: G&L BABP L-1000 reissue
Look! It's the yoyo bass ad - it's up! it's down! it's back up! and so on and so forth. And now it's back up.
This is one of the recent reissue L-1000s - the classic design and controls (parallel/single coil/OMG switch along with volume, treble cut and bass cut knobs) with modern construction techniques. The body is alder with tobacco burst finish and the neck is a slim #8 (1.5" nut width, 12" fretboard radius) with a satin finish.
It's nice and light at 8.8 lbs and a joy to play. The best way I can think of to describe OMG mode (more accurately single coil with bass boost) is that if a normal P-bass is Bruce Banner then an L-1000 in OMG mode is the Hulk. Parallel has more edge and presence, single coil slices & dices and OMG is a sledgehammer.
Hard case included. The reason I'm selling is I've overbought and fiscal responsibility says something has to give and this is the one.
$995 shipped in the contiguous 48, paypal OK
Although paying down gear debt is my primary goal I would consider working a trade for:
G&L Tribute JB2
Any would have to have 1.5" nut width, satin neck and weigh 8.75lbs or less
