Be still my heart! That's awesome.
I’m not sure. I think mine is from 2014. I’m waiting on the replacement build sheet from G&L to be sure.
I finally got the bass and it looks great except for the fact it's buzzing like crazy, and stops when you touch the strings. Opened up the control plate. No sheilding whatsoever. I have a Luthier doing a copper shielding job on it.
I don't understand how a company with otherwise great workmanship, didn't at least put on a few coats of sheilding paint. I would have thought that would have been pretty much standard on American made instruments by now.
This lack of shielding is common with G&L. And a real PITA.
Nothing worse than paying big bucks for your dream bass and having to bring it to your luthier as soon as you receive it, because it’s basically unplayable.
fedex yesterday… “expected to arrive a day early”. Nothing….
Today… “your package is now delayed”.
as of now, it’ll be here tomorrow. We will see
Nothing better than that $2,000 surprise package! My highly optioned JB hums like a chain saw next to certain light dimmers.
But still better than a custom order where single line items typed on paper could not be remembered or built.
This thread is starting to read like a Linux forum from 20 years ago.
A Tribute L-2000
This hurts my back just reading it..
12.5 lbs… pfft.
I had a Gibson EDS-1275 for a while. That clocked in around 15 lbs.
I've bought 3 G&L Custom Shop basses new, none have had shielding. I agree it should be a normal default. I use shielding paint, goes on fast and works well.
Goes silent when touching strings is often a bad bridge ground
Yea I can except a single coil hum it's to be expected. But grounding noise issues? Seems unacceptable. Shouldn't it be guitar building 101 to make them grounded/shielded properly and noise free?
Given that G&L give an MRSP of $215 for painting one side of a headstock black, how much would they add for painting the inside of a cavity with shielding paint?
I like how Steve describes in detail the preamp
Steve working it in a instrumental setting...Check out the low B
It’s here!!! And it’s amazing! Almost zero shielding, but that didn’t take long to fix and now no more hum. The neck on this thing is so comfortable and the tone is exactly how a P bass should sound.
I am really digging my Fullerton deluxe lb100. I must say, this is one of the best made necks I have played. The fingerboard is thicker than any bass I’ve had before, and the edges are rolled very generously. It is a joy to play to put it lightly. The pickup is pretty hot compared to my jazz bass, but maybe all precisions are like that?
G&l hit this bass out of the park for sure. The only “complaint” is the shielding. But that’s minor to me.
I absolutely love that burst!
Thanks! It’s called “old school tobacco burst”. But it reminds me of a honey burst.
