    Hey Y'all,

    I think that these days instead of trying to corner the market on SB2s I'm trying to corner the market on narrow necked L1Ks. Unfortunately I think my wrists are getting even more finicky as I've suddenly run into a number of narrow G&L necks that didn't fully agree with me, and this is another.

    In 2008/2009 G&L in conjunction with the BABP board and Guitarman in NYC did a reissue of the L1000. Traditional controls (vol/treble/bass knobs with parallel/single coil/OMG mode switch). Plenty of options available including all neck versions. This one is a #8 (1.5" width, 12" radius) and has GOT (gun oil tint) gloss neck with maple board. The body is candy apple red over alder and it was reported to weight 8.8lbs.

    It's great - I love the tone even with the unknown rounds that came on it and it roars like an L-100 should. L1K simplicity, modern construction, it's the perfect bass for me except that my wrists/hands are feeling it after playing for more than a little time. So like the fretless I listed recently it's available.

    Great condition, molded case, paperwork.

    $975 shipped lower 48

    the only trades I'd really be interested in are:

    - G&L L1K/L2K/SB-1/SB-2/LB-100 or Kiloton (1.5" nut width satin neck, <=8.75lbs)
    - G&L fretless matching above less Kiloton
    - G&L Tribute SB2 or Kiloton <=8.75 lbs
    - Gold Tone Microbass or MEbass 23 fretted
    - Audiokinesis Hathor 1505

    I'll get pics up this weekend
