    Hi everyone,

    Just got my new G&L today. Took about 12 weeks including transit and some holiday delays in there. Black burst over Ash, #8 Neck with vintage tint gloss, Ebony board and black headstock. I've only played her for a few, but I think we're going to get along just fine. I got a really good deal on it from a dealer I know really well (too low to show! lol).

    Anyhow, here are some photos and I'm off to get my G&L Club Member Number.

    Sweet looking bass. An SB2 is on my list of basses to try.

    Sweeeeeet. Thinking of a fretless version very similar to this.

    Is that one of the new ones?

    The LB-100s and SB-1s are some of the best-sounding P-basses I've ever heard.

    If you don't mind, what's she weigh?

    Beautiful bass. Someday I'll own another SB-2. Traded mine years ago for a Pedulla Rapture. The SB-2 is a great-sounding P-Bass.

    I have no idea. Not too heavy for me after a back surgery, so I'd say reasonable. To this day, I've never weighed a bass, only cabinets.

    Congrats!! Enjoy your new toy! :)

    I love my SB2, it's my go to bass now. I still love my Fender Jazz's but...they're not an SB2!

    Rad. If, for any reason, it doesn't work out between the two of you I'd not be ashamed of sloppy seconds. :D

    Congrats fucanay! I have a SB-2 built from two 80's parts - neck and the body - and I use it as my D-tuned bass. That low D is amazing on it :)

    That is AWESOME. My dream G&L is same finishes just with white body binding and bound/black neck on a L-2000.
