Oops, I did it again, I...Purchased from UpFront Guitars. Their price was $1699 + tax. I've never experienced G&L's frost option. I'll probably have it added to any future G&L builds..it feels awesome and looks great. Impulse bought. I keep trying to expand my taste in basses, but at the end of the day I can't get away from alnico 5 jazz pups. Can't do humbuckers either... It is what it is. I've had MFD's before and everyone loves them except me. They are incredible, but I don't "love them". It's my own disease. Listed on Reverb as well. I don't need to "sell" you on how this bass sounds and the build quality. I'll save you the reading...we all know how incredible these instruments are. I don't personally think photos or YouTube videos do it any justice. Couple more photos on the reverb listing. My feedback is on Reverb and eBay under the same username. PayPal only. Shipped to verified residential address. UPS - fully insured and requiring a signature. You'll need to have feedback someplace as well. I will send photos of the bass being packaged, photos of the box before it leaves my possession, photo with the label on the box, and a photo of the drop off receipt. I *should* just sell this and end this madness of wasting money buying/trying/reselling, however I can't make any promises to myself. The only trade I'm interested in at the moment is a USA JB, newer, rosewood, non burst color. Although certain bursts look great like this SB2, I prefer solid color. Alder, 9.5 radius (12 if the bass is perfect otherwise). This arrived yesterday, I noodled for 10 minutes (probably less). It's in the case and that's where it will stay. It is as new as it gets. For the sake of listing accuracy I always state that you may find minor blemishes/signs of use. It will arrive to you just like it was shipped brand new in the original box. Killer neck...killer setup...killer tone. The trifecta. Local pickup is fine too, but I'm not a store so I'm not having people come in and try it out before buying. If my feedback isn't enough reassurance, then I understand if you don't want to purchase it for pickup.
