    G&L Lynx with Moses Graphite Neck
    This is one awesomely aggressive piece. I bought it last fall to act as a twin to my '83 SB-2, and it certainly proved itself to be up to the challenge. It's infinitely playable with a more jazz-like neck and some nice body contours. The sound is still prototypically 80s g&l, though I find this particular setup trades a little bit of the BOOM of my sb-2 for an edge and articulation that really fills out a mix. I assume this is a mixture of a lower body weight and the Moses neck. It would not be leaving my care, but I'm doing much more drumming than bass-ing lately, and I just dropped a ton of cash on new cymbals.

    It's obviously very non-original. The pots have been replaced, but the originals are included. The bass has been refinished in a satin black. It's an interesting finish to play on, because it never feels sticky. Very low friction. Pickups are obviously original. On the whole, it's in really good shape. There is a small ding (pictured) near the input jack. You'll also notice that somebody really went to town on the neck when it was put on. It actually sits perfectly, but if you look up close you'll definitely see that it was carved down.

    Comes with a nice fender case. Let's do this at $525 shipped CONUS via Fedex.

    A very pretty bass, who obviously has been a player. But fretwear looks minimal and it looks to be setup just right. Made with some serious quality parts. If you ARE a player. And HAVE to play in windy cold conditions. THIS IS THE BASS to have. As it will stay in tune and deliver in spades. If someome hussles your wife. You can hit the attacker cold to the ground. Then procede to the gig and play.... And noone will know...

    The frets are in very good shape. The setup is about medium-low right now, of my own doing. If you have a light touch you could definitely go lower and get your fingerstyle funk on. For heavy picking cavemen like me, it's set about as low as I would go.
