    Selling my recently acquired G&L Matador. I picked this up as part of a trade deal and while I love it, my custom Skjold will be completed soon so I need to make some room and free up some cash.

    For those who don't know, the Matador basses are only available right now through G&L's custom shop with a starting price around $2400.

    About this bass - it has a swamp ash body with a color shifting big flake paint job. This is not a factory finish and I'm not certain who did this refin, but it's a great job. I took a few pics at different angles to show to color shift range.

    The neck is a medium C shaped Hard Rock Maple with a bone nut, 1 5/8" nut width and a 9.5" radius. The neck is super comfy. The fingerboard is Caribbean Rosewood with medium jumbo frets and G&L's ultralight tuners. The bass is currently strung with flats...not sure of the brand.

    The passive electronics are dual LB100 Alnico P's with volume, volume, tone. There is a single mini toggle that puts the neck pickup into series mode.

    The bass weighs 9.2 pounds and comes in the original G&L Custom Shop hard case.

    I am looking for $1925 or best reasonable offer, plus 75% of actual shipping costs.

    Not really looking for trades, especially basses or cabinets. I may entertain a partial trade + cash for a bass head. I'll be picky - the head must push at least 500w @ 4ohms and not weigh as much as a boat anchor!!

    Thanks for looking!

    Very nice specs on this bass,If I were you I would change the title to G&L Custom Shop.
    They don’t make a lot of them and you very rarely see one for sale…incredible instruments!

    You'll likely have to go through one of their dealers. Go to their website and find a dealer close to you!
