    Great condition 8 ohm Glasstone Li'l G 212. This is a great cabinet, tiny with a huge voice. It looks like a 112, but it has an internal downward-firing 12". Weighs about 35lbs, sounds at least twice the size and weight. Close your eyes and you'll think it's a 410.

    This one has the kickback handle. Wonderful sounding cabinet, just not the sound I'm currently going for.

    Here's the thread where I bought it: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f127/f-s-pair-8-ohm-glasstone-lil-g-212s-1046077/

    I don't have a picture right now, but it looks exactly as it did in that ad.
    I can take some iPhone pics if anyone wants them.

    Asking $575 shipped in the ConUS.

    Bump for a great-sounding, tiny, and loud cabinet.

    Does this cab have the 4/8 switch?

    No, I think this cabinet was a custom order, so that it could be played with another 8ohm cabinet for a very loud 4ohm load.

    The normal lil G is a 4 ohm cabinet containing two 8ohm drivers. The 4/8 switch turns this into an 8ohm load by simply turning off one of the drivers. So you get a choice between a 4ohm 212 and an 8 ohm 112. This by the way is the only legit way to implement a 4/8 ohm switch.

    This cabinet contains 2 16ohm drivers, to make an 8ohm 212. The equivalent switch would turn it into a 16ohm 112, which isn't very useful. But really, even at 8ohms this is a loud and efficient cabinet.

    I've found that the efficiency gain from going to 4 ohms is really not that much, and is more than offset by the flexibility of being able to pair two 8 ohm cabinets, which is where you really get your efficiency/sensitivity gain.

    Thanks that is actually what I was looking for. I had a 4 ohm 1212L which I traded for an 8 ohm one and you are right there was not a big difference.
