    Here we have a 1996 Blueburst L2000. Weight is right around 9lbs I would estimate(maybe more); it balances on a strap perfectly, no dive whatsoever. The neck is 1.75" at the nut.

    Condition is fair to good. It has some finish wear above the pickups and around the volume knob, though it could undoubtedly be buffed out if desired. Various dings, dents and scratches throughout.

    It has been played, and for good reason. It sounds great. Huge bridge pickup tone on this one. I've had other L2000's and this bridge pickup is significantly bigger sounding. Like all L series, these basses are the epitome of versatility.

    I have the original molded case, though it has two repairs on it with JB-Weld QuikPlastik.

    In addition, I have a never installed "K" switch I'll throw in that allows for single coil switching- a very worthwhile modification.

    It's a great bass, but my E series L2000 has this spot covered for right now.

    [DEL]$750 $700 [/DEL] $675 Shipped in ConUS

    I am also interested in a Kala U-bass as a partial trade!

    If you have any other questions, please let me know.

    Here are the pictures of the bass. Please keep in mind that I have set up lighting and angles for the express purpose of bringing out imperfections. Any scratches or swirls are much less visible under normal circumstances than they are in these photos. I used flash on some to bring out the color as well. Under normal lighting conditions, the color matches the darker colors more accurately, though under bright stage lights it is much lighter.

    You're killing me man!

    I sold my L-2000E about 4 years ago and have been regretting it since.

    Your bass looks awesome but I am broke as it gets.

    Wish I could help BOTH of us out and buy it from you.

    My L2000E is the only reason this one is going. I am in love with that instrument.

    The funny part is: this bass is lighter, more balanced, and in much better condition.

    Tastes are weird, aren't they?

    I've actually started another thread where I'm asking what else has a neck like a B00### L-2000E.

    So far, the answer is "nothing".

    It seems like SUCH a great neck shape; wonder why nothing current is like it, or why G&L moved away from it...

    But I love the trans blue on your bass!

    Maybe try a longer listing time. It will get more notice that way.
