    This is probably the most beautiful G&L finish I have ever seen, just stunning! I bought it from holeindapocket a while back, purely on impulse....but am just not playing it much. Great shape, 3-bolt neck. Plays like a dream, very low action, cuts like you wouldn't believe.
    Weighs about 9.6 pounds, will ship in a very nice Roadrunner HSC.

    $750 shipped.

    What you've got there is a very rare L-1500 Custom. They were only made around '96-97 and I've only ever seen a couple of them.

    Truss rod turns freely in both directions, neck is beautiful! Currently set up with fairly low action, no buzzing anywhere.

    What is the nut width? Also, are the electronics like an L2K with an active/passive switch etc?
