    1982 G&L L-2000E. Made in June, 1982. Plays excellet, great action. Sounds fantastic. All original. The only flaw, if you want to call it that, is that the finish is heavily crazed on the body and neck. See photos. Weight is reasonable at 9lbs 13oz.


    Price - $800 shipped. Comes with a non-original, inexpensive hardshell case. Overseas buyers contact me for a shipping quote.

    I was gassing for this bass a while back. I'd get it in a heartbeat if I had the funds sitting.

    Dang....

    I'm almost certain it's mahogany.

    What makes you think that? Ash was most commonly used. Maybe you can see it thru the missing paint?

    That's why I think it's mahogany. I'll post photos.

    The dark brown hue of the raw wood looks unmistakably like mahogany.

    Although I am virtually always opposed to stripping the finish from a collectible instrument, this one screams for nakedness! :eek:

    'Hog Tookay Alert!

    G&L didn't paint 'hog bodies white very often. According to George Fullerton, they had problems with the mahogany grain and the white finish 'bleeding thru'.

    Damn fine example here, somebody's getting a monster!

    Ya it looks like Hog to me.Do you notice how hot the preamp is in your bass?Mine was super hot and I had to turn down the volume knob to keep from overloading my input on whatever amp I used?

    The preamp is hot, but I never came close to overloading my input. (unlike other basses I have)
