FS/T: G&L Climax bass
This is the predecessor to the L-1500. A single MFD humbucker in the "stingray sweetspot", a jazz-like 1.5" nut width neck, a thin body, and a semi-circular route on the back of the body around the neck plate.
This one is in very nice shape for it's age, the only flaws I can find are a couple of finish stress cracks near the neck pocket. Silver metallic finish, rosewood board. It came to me in a flimsy Fender gig bag but I will ship in a G&L semi-hard case (the shape & padding of a hard case but with a cloth shell instead of a hard plastic shell).
$695 shipped CONUS, paypal OK
-G&L SB-2, L2K, or L1K -- 1.5" nut width, 9.5lbs or less
- Lakland Hollowbody 30
- Carvin BR-12 or NB-120 combo
- maybe a Big Al, Sterling/SLO Stingray HS or HH although those may be too rich for what I can add on top of the Climax

The G&L soft-case
the white stuff in the cavity in the open picture is just some bubble-wrap

Someone's going to love this. My Climax is my desert island bass, although I have to think the silver finish on this one would be better for signaling a rescue plane. Craig's a great guy to boot and really knows his G&Ls.
Free if-only-this-were-fretless bump!

The switches do...?...

Active-passive and either series-parallel or series-single coil. I've seen them both ways but haven't opened it up or tapped the coils with a screwdriver to see which it is. It's only moving one wire to switch from single coil to parallel or vice versa.

I think I set it up series/parallel when I had it. Sweet bass, great tone.

Did you have this one Brad? I know you had a silver one but thought it might have been a different one.
|craigb ||02-05-2014 01:32 PM |
I could include a molded case instead of the soft-side G&L case if that makes a difference to anyone :)

Free bump for a most excellent seller and a sweet-looking G&L.
|craigb ||02-05-2014 07:07 PM |
Thanks! I had a question on the weight and the kitchen scale said 9lbs 9-1/8oz

Let's add a JB2 (US or nat/rw Trib) to the trade possibilities
|craigb ||03-03-2014 09:29 AM |
Monday, monday - nothing like the day after an outdoor gig where the temperature dropped about 30 degrees from start to finish (along with rain)
I've got more cash/paypal built up so EBMM trades are more possible than before - but an SB2 or Lakland HB30 would make me happiest (today)
