    Up for your consideration is an attractive and rare piece of G&L history: a 1995 Climax made in the good old USA.
    • Jazz style neck with a 1.5" nut width
    • 7.5" fingerboard radius
    • 3-bolt neck
    • Single humbucking pickup
    • Volume, Treble and Bass controls
    • Switches for Series/Parallel and Active/Passive
    • 8.6 lbs.
    Body has one noticeable nick (shown in photos) but otherwise is in nice but used condition. Plating on the bridge and control knobs is not perfect.

    Truss rod moves as it should.

    Frets in great condition.

    The electronics appear original, without modification or repair.

    Comes with a non-G&L hardshell case.

    The video below recorded by the most excellent Marcin Pendowski showcases the Climax's unique sounds:

    The price, $950, includes shipping via FedEx Ground in the continental U.S. only.

    Not looking for trades.

    That is a fantastic bass! Back in the 90s I spent a good bit of time trying to find one of these (remember, the internet wasn’t what it is today!). Never did, and ended up with my MM Sterling.

    GLWTS. Any G&L fan will be thrilled.

    The Climax and MM Sterling 4H cover a lot of the same ground. (I own both.) To my ear, the Climax gets a bit more nasally, depending how the controls are set.

    Same color scheme as the Joe Dart sig! Minus the white covers. And of course, the knobs, ha.

    The contouring around the neck plate is super dope. Love it!
