    Up for sale is a G&L JB in Fullerton Red. Great condition with no dents or nicks anywhere. Just a little swirling here and there. Comes with the factory hard case which is fantastic.

    This is hands down my favorite 4-string jazz bass ever. Super comfortable and effortless to play and has a great growl to it. Only selling because i need to go back to a 5-string.

    These are probably the most overlooked and underrated basses but as someone who has previously owned 3x Fender American Standard, 2x Sadowsky Metro, and 2x Musicman basses, i can honestly say this was right up there with my Sadowsky and above the rest. The neck on this is rock solid and more stable than my Metros. I believe it's quarter sawn and has really nice grain. I was really pleased with that when i received it.

    Everything is in perfect working order with minimal fret wear. Showing 9.6lbs on the bathroom scale and balances really nicely with the strap. Currently strung with Sadowsky blue Label. Comes with all the original paperwork and Certificate of Authenticity. Also comes with a chrome neck pickup bell cover if you ever want to install it. No holes drilled for it. Was just there in the case when i got it. Options and free stuff are all good things.

    Selling for [DEL]$1100[/DEL] [DEL]$1000[/DEL] $950 shipped CONUS. If you're local NJ/NY we can work out a deal. Let me know if you have any questions and thanks for looking!

    These are fine basses. Growly and powerful.

    G&L does the Jazz Bass tradition right with these.

    I currently own 2 of these and a Sadowsky 5 string, and completely agree. These are great basses. If you're looking for a passive 4 string, you won't find a better one. This one looks like it has some nice flame on the back of the neck, too.

    Jeffjones, you have sharp eyes! I forgot to mention that in the ad but the neck has a good amount of flame all throughout.

    Thanks, guys! I thought this would sell pretty quickly especially after the price drop but sometimes the sales are fickle.
