    Relisted for sale or trade is my US L2K, featuring three cool things not found on the new ones: (1) the 3-bolt neck with tilt adjustment, (2) the series-mode bass-boost caps (a.k.a. "OMG mode"), and (3) a 7.5" radius neck with 1 5/8" nut, no longer available. It weighs in at 10 lbs. on the bathroom scale, and the serial number dates it to about 1994. (G&L serial-dating is an inexact science; if anyone wants to know what the stamps in the neck pocket say, let me know, and I'll have a look.)

    There are a few minor blemishes that I'll point out in the pictures. Otherwise, everything is original and in perfect working order. It sets up like a champ and was recently adjusted for the season, the frets are in great shape, and there's no "ski jump."

    And the original thread, in case you're interested, is here: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/ft-g-l-usa-l2000-3-bolt-bass-boost-series-mode-998058/

    For sale at $740 shipped and insured CONUS in a gig bag, or $760 shipped and insured CONUS in a banged up but functional hard case.

    As for trades, tops would be a G&L USA bass, specifically one of the following:
    • SB-2, second type (PJ), fretted
    • Climax or L1500, fretted or fretless
    • L2500, fretted
    • El Toro, fretted or fretless
    Cash on either end is an option, depending on the model, condition, case, etc.

    Feel free to run other trade ideas by me, too, but please understand I'm more likely to turn them down.

    Thanks for reading, and please don't hesitate to post or PM with questions!

    Damn, this one's making me itch. What a nice bass, I'm hoping I can scrounge the cash before I get beat to the punch.

    Thanks! Those Aguilars look cooler than cool, but I'm afraid I'm all set in the cabs department.

    I don't even like bursts but hot damn that bass is looking prime! I would gladly trade you my USA JB-2 for such a beast but you did not mention them.

    A JB-2, you say? Hmm, not looking for one at the moment, but my GAS pains are always shifting. Now that you've put the idea in my head, it may only be a matter of time!

    And agreed, this is a burst for guys who don't do bursts. It won me over.

    Hmm...

    How about a "I keep thinking about this one even though I don't like bursts, already have a 3TS/maple L-2000 and only have a first generation SB-2 that I'd let go of" bump...
