    For sale is my 1983 G&L L-2000 bass. Ash body, rosewood board, 1 11/16" nut width which is the perfect balance of a too thin jazz and a too big p-bass. It has the highly sought after bi-cut neck, a change from the earlier one piece 'skunk stripe' necks used previously, much more stable. This has a pick up selector, series/parallel switch and a boost switch. This is just boost, not a 3 way with treble boost, and what a freaking boost it is (think OMG switch). Pure, raw power. The body is finished in a light clear finish, not a thick layer of poly with grain filler, what G&L now calls their nearly naked finish. From my inspection and having owned G&L's for 25 years, there no mods here and no evidence of refinishing (I have removed hardware and neck to check). The Schaller strap locks will be replaced with the original G&L strap buttons at the sale (yes, I do indeed have them). There are 2 dings on the E side of the neck and 2 spots on the head stock, as seen in the pics. None of these affect play.
    In great shape for a 30 year old bass. It comes with a molded G&L hard shell case.

    Wow. Just, wow.

    Kudos to whoever lands this incredible low-down tool. I'll be salivating over it for weeks after it's gone ... sigh ...

    Looks like she's staying in the M of D. :) Thanks to all showing what can only be called one hell of a lot of interest. The offers came in hard and fast and the Local was the winner.

    Cool. Enjoy the bass, sanford.

    If it falls through, let me know if you need another buyer (for local pickup.) If I don't find something that fits the bill, I'll be interested.
