    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.
