    [Note: I relisted this bass for sale on 19-Aug-2018.]

    Gorgeous vintage G&L L1000 bass - Light weight - ~8.9 lbs on digital bathroom scale. Serial number B0053xx.

    This is Leo Fender's precision bass on steroids. MFD pickup. Parallel/Single coil/Single coil with bass boost 3 position switch. Vol/bass/treble controls. This thing can go from p bass thump to almost an an active eq tone.

    Neck profile is the same as a p bass, including 1 3/4" nut. Slab maple neck.
    This bass has the iconic "Lawsuit Era" headstock. Straight neck, frets minimal play wear, truss rod works, no buzzing on upper frets, bridge saddles not bottomed out, etc. All is well.

    The bass has been played, but is in great shape. Finish has mellowed to a gorgeous honey blond - looks like the gun oil tint G&L offers. Lots of finish checking. Great vintage look.

    Price includes shipping to the lower 48 - Shoot me an offer!

    Thanks for looking!

    Don't start playing it again bc you'll change your mind about selling, esp at this price.

    Just as an FYI, Willies guitars in St. Paul has one of these on their website in much more "played" condition. Very early. I think they have it listed as an '81. They popped the neck and found Leo's sig on the neck and the body and then they doubled the price on it. Apparently sometimes he literally signed off on these. You may have a sig inside yours too.

    Thanks; very interesting. I just checked, no Fender sig on the bass. If only...

    I do have an G&L El Toro jazz with a George Fullerton signature on the back of the headstock. He used to come down to San Diego county and visit Buffalo Brothers, hang out and sign instruments. Back in the day. Very cool dude...
