    Putting this up for as long as a couple of basses I'm looking at are still available. I really dig the Wunkay sound, but I rely on 5-strings for the majority of my gigs. If any trades, I would be interested in a Lull M5V, Skyline DJ5, Carvin Sb5000, Elrick New Jazz Standard NJS5. *All trade offers must be in the 8lb range.* I will be picky. :smug:

    1982
    Natural/rosewood
    8.3 pounds -- This is the lightest GandL I have ever touched.
    Neck condition: excellent, frets are great
    Strung with Sadowsky blue Bright Nickels 45-105
    Sounds incredible - quiet electronics with the famous L-1000 sound
    Comes with OHSC (case in fair condition)
    Finish: original - honest road wear is very light wear for age, has turned to a nice vintage yellow color, with lots of cracking in the finish

    At one point there was a strap lock installed on the lower horn - leaving a small hole in that location. It has never bothered me and most of the time I forget it's there. It just adds to the story of this bass.

    Asking $950 Shipping included - only to 48 con US.

    What is the width at the nut? Neck profile or neck #? Thanks, Dan

    I think it's 1 5/8" at the nut, perhaps a #10. It has a nice C profile, not shallow and yet not so wide to be really chunky; might be the best 4-string neck I've ever played.

    Opening this thread back up while I have my eye on something. If you have something in the trade list up top, feel free to run it by me.

    Thats some gorgeous grain! Are those large hex poles? Never seen large hex on anything but '80 L1000s.

    Thanks, it's a nice piece. I like the finish checking, adds so much character to the bass as well. They are hex poles, don't know if they are large or small, it's been a while since I've had a modern G&L. All I know is it sounds great, just a little redundant with my PJ and I'd like a fiver with a more modern J-bass tone.

    I'll ship international, but buyer pays every penny. Must be professionally packed and shipped via a trackable, insurable source (dhl, ups, fedex.)

    Only looking for straight trades at this time. And, of course cash.

    Revised trades would be MIJ/CIJ 60's or 70's RI Jazz basses and recent Fiesta Red RoadWorn's, plus cash. As always trades must be <9lbs.

    Can you measure the nut width? I don't do 1.75", and 1.65" is my max :)

    Neck is 1 11/16. That fact is well documented.

    I was asking the owner of the actual bass, since "I think" implies room for error. And, 1/16" matters.

    Using my tape measure, it's just under 1 11/16". That puts is 3 hundredths/inch over your max.

    I think

    1 11/16 = 1 3/4 = C neck

    1 9/16 = 1 5/8 = B neck

    1 7/16 = 1 1/2 = A neck

    Lots of vintage fenders measure up this way.

    Awesome bass... If that was a B or A neck I would have tried to buy it.
