    G&L L-2500 bass guitar (GandL)
    Made in America
    Cherry Burst with Matching Headstock
    Special ordered neck with maple fretboard with no dot markers
    Factory-wired K option (aka Single Coil option)

    G&L Black Tolex hardshell case (by G&G), in new condition, included.

    Strung with almost new TI Jazz Flats. Or, if you prefer, I think I have some Ernie Ball Power Slinkys with about 5 minutes play time that I can swap onto it.

    This bass is immaculate! All the controls work perfectly, with no scratchy pots or anything like that. The "standard" L-2500 has one switch that is 2-position, which switches the pickup coils between Series and Parallel wiring. With the Single Coil option that switch is replaced with a 3-position switch that switches between Series, Parallel, and Single Coil. Adding Single Coil mode makes this bass even more tonally diverse, adding a seriously beefed-up Jazz bass sound to your options.

    Price is $1200, including the tolex case, shipped to CONUS.

    Thanks, TM!

    I hate to let it go. Seriously! But, I'm moving next month from CA to VA and I gotta pay for the move myself somehow... :-(

    If I didn't have a bass in the exact honeyburst I'd be all over it. Must sound awesome

    Thanks for the trade offers, but I am only considering an outright sale. If I didn't need the cash to help pay for my move, I would not be selling this bass at all and definitely nothing I would trade it for.

    I'm moving at the end of July. If it doesn't sell by then, I'll just keep it!

    I spent a little quality time with this baby over the weekend and decided there is no way I'm selling this! Then, I put it down and got back to work on preparing for my upcoming move in a month and realized I really should sell it because I need the cash badly.

    So, I compromised on leaving it up for sale, and if somebody is willing to pay the asking price (which is a premium price - but this is a premium bass), then I'll let it go. Otherwise, I'll be happy to get to keep it. :)

    Sadly, I am still in the process of moving. So, this is still available...
