    I've decided to do a further pairing down of my collection. These instruments are all fantastic, I just have vision of having less instruments and using them more often, so the following three are available for your consideration.

    Only the G&L is still available, other two are sold and just listed for feedback thread purposes.


    1. USA G&L M2000 with North coil/series/south coil mod on both pickups. This one's a unique find. A great example of an M2000, but I decided to have switches added for both pickups. This mod opens up the possible tone options on this bass immeasurably. 60-70's jazz, p bass, pj, musicman. It's all there. Tone woods are same as first bass, swamp ash, maple. Comes with OHSC Weight is around 8.5lbs and the nut width is 1.5"

    Disclosure on M2000: Unfortunately when the switches were installed a very fine finish crack developed in that area, from the volume knob to around the second switch. It is just cosmetic, not structural in anyway. I will attempt to photograph, but again, it's very fine and barely visible and in now way affects playability or tone. Also factory knobs will be reinstalled and send with bass. $850, Buyer pays actual shipping.


    2. USA G&L JB2 (SOLD). This bass has a swamp ash body, maple neck and board, and flame maple top. It's quite light as well at 8.4 lbs. It's also super clean, the bass itself is near spotless, the only thing I could find is a small chip on the top corner of the bridge pickup cover on the treble side, a very easy fix should you decide to. Also, this bass was produced prior to the company including build sheets so I do not have one. Comes with OHSC SOLD

    3. USA Musicman sterling H (Sold) This one's pretty much self explanatory. A great example in an unusual color scheme and again, same tone woods as before, though I think the body is just ash, now swamp ash. OHSC included 1300.

    It is indeed, and comes with a full complement of many flavors thanks to the mod.

    Can you describe what the switches do a little more clearly? Sounds cool, but I'm not sure I understand.

    Each switch is set up so you can choose the neck coil, both coils in series, or the bridge coil on each pickup. there are two switches so you can control this independently on each pickup. there for, you could get Jazz style tones, P style, PJ style (HB on neck, single on bridge), close to MM style (Bridge coil on neck pickup, neck coil on bridge pickup) and many other tones. I hope that helps.

    Thanks, sounds like a really cool mod: the best of the M-series and the L-series in one.

    Wow. That M is awesome. You just gave me gas to give my M25k the same mods.
