    G&L MFD Pickup like the kind used in L-2000, L-1500, L-1000 models.

    I bought this from a TBer over a year ago. I was going to take a Fender P Bass body and make a Wunkay. I'm still tempted to do this but I already have a G&L Wunkay, so why should I?

    Includes 2 separate G&L Wunkay (L-1000) printed schematics.

    Both coils read about 4.4k ohm or about 8.9K together.

    No hardware. Excellent condition. $89 shipped PayPal USA 48

    (brand new price from G&L $120 + shipping)

    GampLL-1500035_zps2557c25d.

  2. Don't be fooled by the seemingly low resistance; these things are LOUD! Heck, maybe if I can wrap up some EBay stuff I'll be back to check on this one...

    Thank-you, Ethan for your comment and you are very correct about the MFD. I got a Wunkay Hog and so I know.

    Humm, there's an idea! What would be a 3K? Three MFDs on a bass! Rather than buy 2 more MFDs, I'd just like to sell this very one.

    With the 2 included G&L factory schematics (one hand written, the other printed version) a moderately skilled DIYer can build a Wunkay from a P Bass body or other type of body.

    I did the same thing. Already have an L-1000 and I made another out of a Peavey T-45. It wasn't the same and I always played the L-1000.

    Interesting making a T-45 into an L-1000.

    My plan was to put the MFD into a Fender P Bass body (with a pickguard cut for the MFD) and have a L-1000 P Bass.

    I'd still like to try this out but I need to stop building basses and start playing more. So, I've bailed out on the project. Thus, trying to sell the MFD on TB.

    yes, play more, trade less. I should practice right now, but I have to list another bass.

    What is the distance from the center of the G pole piece to the center of the E pole piece?

    55 millimeters from center of G pole to center of E pole. Or...........2 inches + 5/32" from center of G pole to center of E pole.

    Keep in mind that the L-1000 is like the P Bass. 1 inch + 3/4" nut and the MFD is placed at the same spot as a Fender P Bass pickup.

    Thank-you for your interest. cwebb
