My first and hopefully my last, because I know how GAS works, and its a scary thing haha.
Anyways... I started this
thread a couple days ago, asking questions about a G&L SB-1 on my local CL.
I checked it out tonight and ended up taking it home with me... I paid $290 for it. The ad on craigslist said it needed new pickups and new electronics, but when I get there he hands my a bag and says "the original pickups and the electronics are all here for you"
So i just got done wiring it up, and this thing GROWLS big time. Sounds like i'm running through an overdrive or something, its amazing tone. Super deep with a nice sparkle on top.
The downside is that, these aren't the MFD pickups... they're the original Schallers that came with these bases in 1985. http://www.ggjaguar.com/sb-1-85.htm
(basically this bass exactly)
Some bumps and bruises, but I'll be taking this on the road with my anyways, so I'll be adding my own bumps and bruises.
$290 for what I thought was going to be a project, and it turns out it just needed to be put back together. It does need a new PG though, so I'll be ordering one soon.
