    After some serious consideration,going to let the EL Toro go. Not getting any younger,so trying to not think of myself. Thinking about the wife,and how devastating it would be for her,if she had to try and sell some of my toys(basses)? Sometimes just need to face reality! So much for that story! I bought this because it looked exactly,like the one I ordered from G&L, back in 1988,looked just like the very one, IMG_0467.JPG IMG_0468.JPG IMG_0469.JPG IMG_0470.JPG IMG_0475.JPG IMG_0477.JPG IMG_0478.JPG IMG_0482.JPG IMG_0483.JPG that this one is,and it surprised me,when I saw it for sale? The bass is in great shape to be 29years old. Has a few minor dings,down by the input jack,and control knobs. Small place on back of neck,but don't show in pictures. Case in good shape,not banged,just your normal small places in the tolex,all latches work smoothly. Bass plays great,and all the electronics work,and all the toggles,and control knobs,function as well. Don't need to say a whole lot,cause anyone that are familiar with the G&L EL Toro,know what they are,enough said. If interested PM me with any questions. Will accept PayPal,for payment. Firm on $900 shipped,lower 48 only.Sorry no trades.

    If it were green, I would be jumping on this and selling my black 83.
