    $SOLD shipped to continental U.S., includes hard shell case. Paypal, please. Local pickup in Chicago gets a discount.

    This is a fully functional/setup G&L SB-1 bass (2nd gen).
    -Black finish
    -Parchment/Black/Parchment pickguard (it looks sorta gold in the pics, but is actually off-white in person)
    -Swamp Ash (possibly Alder) body
    -Bird's Eye Maple neck/fretboard
    -Thomastik-Infeld Jazz flatwound strings

    I have not removed the neck to verify, but am pretty certain this is a '96, certainly mid-90's, bass. I own/owned a lot of SB-1s over the years, so I know what to look for. The serial number is B020393, so you can go check the GbL registry, if so inclined.

    A stone cold killer in a tuxedo.

    Thanks for looking!

    I just picked up a SB-1 from the same year and these are killer P-Basses! Free bump for my favorite bass :)

    bump for a killer P.
     
  10. I have an '80s version of this and is a main player. I really like the pick guard upgrade too. Sweet bass.

    Hi, the neck has G&L's standard clear gloss finish.

    As for the neck's thickness, per G&L:
    1st Fret Depth = 0.820"
    12th Fret Depth = 0.940"

    Thx!

    If it had a J neck, this would be coming to Iowa! Free bump anyways. Someone is gonna get a steal. I love that birds eye neck.
