    We have a L-1005 (that's right, a 5-string L-1000) for sale. These are incredibly rare as only 10 or so were made mainly through Rocket Music special orders. G&L pulled the plug a few months ago, and now we have a true collectors item. This is my SECOND one, as I have another.

    Did I mention it's really a hell of a bass? Very thunderous, and totally passive. Parallel, single coil and single coil with bass boost are the switch settings, and the bass has volume, passive treble and passive bass roll off. The B string sounds massive too. I think it weighs 8.5 pounds.

    Selling because I want to continue funding my growing video arcade in the den.

    Comes with a hard shell case. Don't miss out on this.

    NOW $910 shipped ConUS in the case (no box, it will be packed well) or $885 cash in person if you're local to NYC or Long Island. I'm not going lower.

    I hate to say this, but after several completely non-serious offers, I have to. No "hold this and I'll pay you in a week if I feel like it" or any nonsense, your PMs will be completely ignored. Serious inquiries ONLY - be prepared to make a deal now and pay, otherwise have a nice day.

    Sorry, $850 is too low. Also, offers should be made through PM - not on the sale thread itself.

    I own one of these basses and it is fantastic. I cannot imagine why G&L discontinued them. The electronics are simple but very versatile. It easily goes from an in your face grind to big, fat and mellow and everything in between.

    I don't know the seller....but I know the bass!

    Hey, I'm trying to fund some other stuff, so if you guys are interested and can help me move this, I'd be very happy.
     
  13. I wish I needed this. One of the most beautiful instruments I have ever seen.

    Alder.

    So my scale doesn't register weights under 10lbs. I don't have an accurate weight, but it's really not a heavy instrument. I still think 8.5 lbs max.
