Before any of the GLeeks, newb and old, start flaming about how this model doesn't exist, it doesn't. This started life as a first-generation G&L SB-2, and has had a few...alterations... along the way. Originally conceived and created by sanfordandsonny, the body is a 1983 SB-2 in super flamey maple. At one time, somebody had routed it out for a pair of Alembic humbuckers, but Sonnjy's vision was a little more G&L-eeky. A pair of second generation SB-2 MFD split humbuckers were added. Also, and of special note, the controls were changed to a complete, first-generation L-2000 Series E preamp and plate. Don't think of the word firepower, think more like kill-power... The original SB-2 neck was replaced with an L-2000 neck from 1996 ( might be a 97 neck, can't remember, and if it is a dealbreaker for anyone, I'll pop it for the exact date.) Rosewood board, correct G&L tuners, stock #7 profile (1-3/4 at the nut, flat around the back), frets are in great shape, a few small doinks, but nothing you can feel or affecting the playability. No ski jump, truss rod is 100%. Fits the neck pocket perfectly. Bridge is now a chrome unit from 1992- present, neck plate is original to 1983. I purchased the bass from bglosh who had a killer pickguard made for it, and had the battery cover recessed. Schaller straplock buttons. Full disclosure time- the pickup selector switch was changed eons ago, but I have an era- correct fully functional OEM in my parts drawer. The bridge MFD is currently wired for only parallel operation- a pretty simple fix, but my soldering skills on micro-switches really sucks-, there's a hole through the neckplate for a strap button, pickguard covers most of the holes, but two are still visible, see pics, and for the sonically uptight, a shielding job in the cavity would really quiet this one down. Weighs in at just under 10 lbs. No case for it, sorry, will be packed for war. Whole bass $625 shipped. Yes, it's worth way more than that in just the parts, but that's what I have into it, and friends don't gouge friends. Paypal only. TRADES - run 'em by me, worst thing I'll do is politely pass. Small class D amps, ie GK, Genz Streamliner, etc. PICS!
