G&L Refinishing Complete

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Sanctum, May 10, 2002.

  1. A followup from the previous thread:

    The refinishing went well, new tung oil finish, and I even rewired the thing myself ;) Well, the wiring was fine, but I improved my soldering skillz.

    My last question is the pickup height - how high should they be? Or is it just a matter of sound preference?

    Here's the gallery of the process and the bass now:

    i really don't know alot about G&Ls
    is that a Sb-2 a 1983 1984 model maybe?
    i found one just like that black maple neck
    the paint was wore through had the nice relic look.
    he said he wouldn't sell it to me if i was going to refinish it.
    how much was yours?
    this is $425
    they sound AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. It is indeed a 1983 SB2. It was hanging on the wall for $425, but I traded in an MIM Fender V for it, which I know wasnt worth that much. You're right, it sounds awesome - its my first G&L ever.
