    Cool beans, my '86 G&L SB-1 is on it's way. It's a Leo era model, whatever that means to you G&L guys.. It's black with a single ply black pickgaurd, and maple neck.

    It's got some wear on it, but I've got no problems with that since 1- I know about them ahead of time 2- The bass is nearly as old as I am; myself being an '84 model. I suspect it'll be here come next Wednesday or Friday, but I can't help but post about it early. I've been without a new bass since (checks back posts) 5-30-03. That's almost a year!

    Here are the sale pics to tide myself and you over. I know you don't really need tiding over, but I know the rules...new basses don't exist unless there are pics.

    Must be even harder, Mark, since you're waiting for another 4 strings and an extra pickup.

    Every time I press one of these black controls, labelled in black on a black background, a little black light lights up black to let me know I've done it.

    Sweet. "Pre-lawsuit" or whatever headstock too :) . I betcha' it's got that
    "micro-tilt" neck plate thingie as well. Once in hand, you should be able to
    check the S/N here ==> http://www.guitarsbyleo.com/

    There's a nice trans-blue fretless L-1000 floatin' around the `net somewheres
    for less than $700. Rothman's Guitars, I think :meh:


    ...focus...FOCUS!...must wait for the mighty mini symmetrical rig o' doom :ninja:

    another vote for "hatin' the wait" :hyper:

    You could have replaced Fodera with any high end or custom builder for the same effect.

    I just imagined you waiting for an exotic wood custom job painted solid black and found it amusing. :D
