    Offering my 2003 G&L L-2500 Blue Burst with wood binding and matching headstock. Ash body, #10 C shaped maple neck with rosewood fingerboard. 1 3/4" nut width and a 12" radius. Weighs around 10 lbs. Molded G&L case.

    It's minty except for a very small scratch on the back which does not show well in the overall photo. I've played it out maybe twice as I'm not comfortable playing 5 string and singing. $1000.00 shipped and insured.

  2. Just curious, what's going on with the "D" saddle screw? It looks broke or not threaded, hard to tell from the picture. Thanks.

    Bones1450, My stupidity. When I cleaned her up, restrung and adjusted for intonation I must have backed the adjusting screw out and not noticed. Fixed now. Thanks for the catch.

    Gorgeous bass. The neck looks to be quarter-sawn which is a great feature.

    Is the neck gloss or flat satin?

    It's a gloss neck sort-of. I rub down all my necks with 0000 steel wool to remove the tacky feel then polish with Virtuoso.

    So the original G&L finish has been removed?

    Scubabuba, Sorry for the delay. No the original finish is totally intact. With all of my basses, guitars and some of my mandolins I prefer a silky smooth feel of the finish to the neck. I want a finish on the instrument for protection but do not want the maintenance of speed neck which exists on some of my mandos and my violin. Although some bass necks have a relatively nice finish which wears in over time, I prefer to speed and assist the process a bit. My goal is to decrease the tacky feel inherent most finishes (nitro or varnish) and rather than wet sanding with 1200 or better grit then polishing, I find 0000 steel wool perfect for the process followed by a buffing and polishing with Virtuoso.
