F/S: 1981 G&L L2000 Series "E" FL fretless with slot pole pickups that came for only that year. The "e" stands for electronic preamp as the original L2000 was passive...never seen one, but, they're in the catalog... Tobacco-burst mahogany body, no-dots-noline ebony fretless neck. 1 3/4'' width, shallow depth, sidemarker dots where the frets would be. The wide but shallow neck plays like a dream. The tobacco-burst is extremely well done, and the color I've always thought vintage G&L's should be, and did best. I'm the ---original owner---, and ---bought it new--- from St Louis School Music while passing thru on the road. St Louis was a regular stop for us. I stopped in on several tour legs, playing it each time before I had saved enough to buy it. It was my main touring bass for many years, but it's in really, really great shape despite/because of that. I take great care of what pays the bills, ya know? There are roundwound marks on the board, but no real wear. The finish is worn thru slightly at the forearm breakover/body contour. There are some dings in the back, and one in the front; nothing major. The early L2000e series preamp had all the regular G&L preamp features: vol/treblecut/basscut; pickup selector: neck/both/bridge preamp: off/on/on with treble boost but the middle mini-switch was single coil with bass boost, and dual coil...unlike most models after the E series which had dual parallel and dual series The slots in the slot pole pickups can be used to adjust pole height, and pickup color: parallel to the strings is a little brighter than perpendicular to the strings. You can mix and match positions between single coil and dual coil too! In single coil it barks harder then a Jazz fretless, and in dual coil it's massive! Hardware/chrome/blacking and hard to find early knobs all in excellent shape with no rust, pitting, flaking, etc. All the correct covers still on the mini-switches. It embodies all things early G&L: great Leo Fender innovation, hand made in Fullerton build quality; superb playability and tone. $1000+shipping in ---the original G&L hardshell case---payment by paypal e-check prefered. I can swap on a fretted neck if that would suit someone better. I have both a 1 11/16'' maple, and 1 3/4" rosewood available. In that case, I'd keep the freless neck.
