I've been through 7 different G&L's over the years (JB2/L2K/L2.5K) and this one is the best of them. It's an L-2000 that is as black-on-black as they can come. Photos: http://gallery.me.com/joebone1 This features the popular #8 neck (1.5" at the nut, 12" radius), with the now-discontinued ebony fretboard. There are no dot markers on the board, although effective dot markers are embedded along the side. The headstock is also black, matching the black body. It also features the optional 3-way coil selector, so you can go series/single-coil/parallel, as well as the customary toggles for pickup selection and passive/active/boost. Yoked to the usual volume, bass and treble knobs, the already broad tonal range of the L2K is further enhanced by the additional coil option. So we have an unusually elegant presentation, with three upcharge features (3-way coil, matching headstock, fretted ebony board w/o dot markers), and some collector value to boot as the fretted ebony board is no longer available. Interestingly, this is the same option package as on the special run of L2Ks that was produced by the Badass Bassplayer folks, except those had a blackburst ash body, and the badass logo on the headstock...me, I prefer the sound of alder and the look of solid black. But we also have one that plays really, really well. I've noticed some variability on the #8 necks, with some having a bit deeper profile than others, and this is one of them. I prefer that feel, and think it lends a bit more depth to the sound. And of all of the L-2000's I've played, this one strikes the best balance between clarity and growl. And the ebony board is a nice piece of wood, in good shape. Overall, the axe is practically mint - the first owner was a guitarist who says he only used this for home recording, and I believe it! There are no scratches, cracks or dings, and just the slightest bit of surface swirling. And the fitted fiber case is in excellent condition. $1000 plus shipping from Los Angeles. I am willing to ship to many European and other non-US locations, but ONLY if you can pay via paypal, if you cover all shipping, insurance and duties as agreed between us, and if you accept all risks of loss or damage in transit. USPS is often the cheapest way to go, but their insurance cap is like $650 or some such thing. That said, I've now shipped 6 basses abroad, all via USPS, with no casualties to date.
