    Headed for Myrtle Beach for the weekend and I can bring her with me for those who don't want to deal with shipping. Just let me know.



    Selling my 1981 G&L L-1000 w/HSC. The serial # is B007507. She is a true blonde, check the roots! There is finish checking and some dings as to be expected on a 30 year old bass. She is dead stock. I will include the orig. strap buttons as I have Shaller strap lock on her now. I have tried to photograph all angles. There is little if any fret wear. There is some arm wear and bruses. Please check the pics for this. The bass is a monster and drips with serious MOJO but my B000833 L1K HOG/Ebony is finished her re-fret and I am trying to fund another Alembic. I am asking $900 for the G&L shipped CONUS (lower 48). Local pick up will save you $50, that's $850 here in the Mid-Atlantic. Right now the only trade I will entertain is the odd Alembic. Yes, I have the bug. Here is a link to my Picasa album:

    Use the zoom, it brings them all in real close.
    Here are a few teaser shots as well. Please feel free to as any and all questions.

    Thanks 45. Good seeing you, Eyeball and the others today. The Mesa has sold.
     
  9. Nice! Yeah, confirmed this afternoon...12 - 16 weeks on an L2000 or an ASAT.
    Thinking Lake Placid Blue with a #8 Birdseye Maple Board.

    This will make someone supremely delirious.
    I can't really picture life without an L1000.

    Should be 1 11/16, and a nicely contoured shallow C shape.
    Weight varies a lot. Both of mine weigh well under the 11lbs...
     
  16. i have one identical to this and it is fantastic. can't agree enough with all the good things said about it.

    I agree and were it not for the '80 being finished, this one would not be for sale. ;)
    The neck is 1 11/16" as are all of my basses, including the Alembic. I think that is the best and I have hobbit hands! Nice and flat, she's no 'baseball bat' (kuddos to Chef) and the action is low and fast. The weight is around 9 lbs or so as 45cmckay105 and Eyeball can attest to. I did have one, an L2K years ago, that was over 10 that were made of northern ash (from G&L). It was oh so heavy but oh so good as well.
