    This is a JB5 by G & L in a beautiful sonic blue finish.
    Empress body
    maple neck and board
    G&L alnico pickups
    2016 model
    was $1275.00/$1200 NOW: $1125

    This is a beauty and it plays and sounds awesome. I got it in a partial trade but can't keep as I have way too many basses.

    Boy do I wish I had the funds to grab this right now, right at the top of my current gas list, and even in the right color. GLWS.

    With all due respect to the seller, I note that questions about the bridge string spacing have now been asked directly and ignored three times in this thread, along with a question about the nut width that is also of interest to me and probably other potentially interested buyers. It's undoubtedly a very nice instrument but I won't buy even a hundred-dollar five without knowing the string spacing up front. It's the difference between playable and unplayable for a lot of us.

    Harbor Freight carries a cheap plastic caliper that can help very quickly with these things (if a reasonably precise ruler is not available).

    Here is a spec certificate:

    There is no mention of the string spacing at the bridge but I believe is 17.5mm and not 17mm
    I will call G & L on Monday and confirm.
