    I have for sale a 4 string bass project that I don't have time to finish. This body is a 17th Street guitars 4 string bass built by L.A. builder John Carruthers. It is alder with a butterscotch orange see through finish. It has EMG pickups and preamp. I believe the bridge is a Gotoh, but not positive. The body needs a 22 or up to 24 fret neck to get the scale right. This could make a killer USA bass when finished. I'm asking $195 shipped to the CONUS. I could part this body out for a bit more, but I'd like to see it get put together. I'd consider a decent compressor such as a Markbass or an Empress or equivalent as a trade. PM with questions or to make a deal. Thanks for looking.

    Im not sure that the neck is a 70s G&L, they didn't start until 1980. And they didn't change to that headstock until '83.

    Thanks for the info. I thought they started in the 70s. I don't have a lot of knowledge about G&L. Just know the Leo Fender was the "L". I will correct the listing.

    And it could be yours for the right price or trade.:)
     
  6. I see the potential.
     
  7. Can't find the amps you refer to above: …."or trade for one of the amps in the other link on my signature"....

    I really want to put this thing together but lack funds. Got lots of gear to swap.

    I just fixed it. I had sold or traded the items that were in my sig. What have you got? Mostly open to amps or a compressor.

    The neck I had for this has been sold on Fleabay, so I've edited this for the body only.
