    All prices include shipping in the 48 states only. I'll ship elsewhere but you pay the extra.

    The ONLY trades I'm interested in are:
    -Sadowsky NYC Vintage P4, non-maple board, chunky P width neck, 8.0 lbs or less, solid color preferred
    -Mike Lull P4 with P-width neck, rosewood fingerboard only, clear finish on headstock
    -17th Street 5 string
    -Lakland USA Glaub with P-width neck, rosewood board only, non-matching headstock, 8.5 lbs or less, P only - no PJ

    First is a super clean G&L SB-1. I'm guessing it's a mid to late 90's era but I haven't taken the neck off to check the build dates. It's got 3 bolt one piece neck made from birdseye maple - you don't see many of these! The neck is P width at the nut - 1.75" wide and has a nice round back contour. Frets have no wear, looks like it's had flats it's whole life and has them right now. The body finish is excellent, a couple of scratches on the edge of the body, a few more minor scratches on the back, and one tiny crack in the clearcoat by the corner of the neck pocket - otherwise it's as new. This looks like it's pretty much new other than some light tarnish on the bridge saddles and tuners. Weight is nice at 9.0 lbs, comes in the original molded factory hardcase.

    Price is $650 SOLD

    Sorry, I don't know what year it was built, and the fingerboard is definitely ebony but I don't know which type. Scale length is 34.5".

    35" or 34.5" on that Carruthers scale length?
