    I got this on a TB trade, and it's really cool, but I just don't see playing it much, so I am putting it up here. I may regret it someday because unlike a Pbass, this is not a one trick pony.

    1982 G&L made in USA
    34" scale neck , 22 frets
    Neck is more like a jazz. Comfy and easy to grab.
    Normal wear and a nice , worn patina. Surface finish cracks make it look very cool, because it is the real deal, and actually road worn.

    I did a set up and the action is LOW. Plays like a dream now. I'd say it's the ultimate classic rock bass because it's all passive, gets an overall Rickenbacker, Musicman, Fender, and G&L of course tone. Pretty much any old radio classic or passive bass tone can be achived with this bass.

    Controls are Volume, bass, treble, series, parallel, parallel with bass boost. And again, all passive.

    $900 shipped is a great price for this bass

  2. Beautiful bass! I wish I was in the market for another G&L; my fretless L2500 is an amazing machine. Somebody is going to get a great deal here.

    Are you considering trades?

    No, because I already have a cash offer from a TB'er, but I am showing it locally first and cash always wins over trades.
