    I don't mean to be difficult, but I'd like to clarify one thing on this finish.

    Though discontinued now, AFAIK Blue Dawn was a regularly-offered, albeit slightly more expensive, finish for many years. Like G&L has three tiers of finishes, this would be in the higher tiers. The painted headstock is another upcharge option commonly found on many EB basses. If this bass was "custom" ordered, someone would have called a place like Bass Central and said "I want x finish, maple neck and a painted headstock"--selected from that year's catalogue of available colors. This finish was discontinued and in its place you now have a blue burst over visible ash.

    I just didn't want anyone to confuse that sort of "custom" with something like the current Envy Green with black headstock (which is a true limited edition and has a special neckplate to prove it) or some such like thing which would be MORE collectible than a typical SR5. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.

    If this bass is still available would you be interested in either a three bolt G&L L2000 with a jazz bass profile neck and beautiful cherry sunburst finish in excellent condition or a Custom made jazz five with EMG soapbars and a Demeter three band preamp?
  10. Send me pics and info bro....
  11. Bump...And to reply to Dr Phunky Pants.....Blue dawn was only offered for a few months...I called Ernie Ball.... Trade for a Fender MIJ 75 Ri or Yamaha BB plus cash???
  12. Heres what I got for the white sparkle Sterling Will (this one may never get sold or traded). ;) ;) ;)
