    Sweet Bass I just bought the same bass in transparent blond finish here. It's a great rendering of a Jbass with 5 strings and a narrow comfy neck. I love the sparkles!

    Something I neglected to mention in the original post, I prefer to keep the shipping within the continental US. Apologies for not mentioning that sooner.

    Thanks!

    BTW, if you would like to see any specific photos of the bass, just ask~

    I'm about 98% sure that it's 34, but I'll have to double check that...

    Pretty sure it's 16.5 -17mm
    I know it's not 18-19 or I'd buy it
    Beautiful bass

    Greg at Rocket Music verified that the spacing is indeed 17mm at the bridge, but may feel slightly larger due to the wider nut width.

    Every so often I go through my basses and give them a good cleaning and any needed adjustments. Today I got to the JB5 and wondered how it would look without the pickguard. Here's what it looks like:

    *(Note: The photos make it appear more blue than it is; in person it is more of a turquoise green)

    And just because the JB5 headstock is my favorite of the G&L 5-strings, here's a bonus photo :D

    Funny side note; when I was posting the photos my wife walked in and thought I had bought a new bass-- she didn't recognize it :D

    Me too.....and slapped a clear pick guard on it so fast it would make your head spin. That finish is outstanding.
