    This bass is pure Leo vibe. It's a pre-lawsuit edition, neck stamp puts it to 1986. Old style headstock and Leo's signature right on it. Maple board and tobacco burst finish, just like in the promo ads.

    It's seen some battles, but plays very well. Sounds huge, fat and warm, and can dial in enough bite with the tone knob to slap. Cosmetically, the pickguard is cracked in the usual place for this model, there are two paint chips near the heel, and a 1 1/2 inch long scrape along outside of the the upper bout. Nothing that impacts playablity, and it's lighter than my other two G & L's - less than 9 lbs. All in all pretty sweet for a 20 year old beast. This is the only bass about which the guitarist I've been playing with for 15 years has said, "wow, that's a good looking ax."

    Plenty more pics available, just drop me a line.

    Now priced at $550 w/ paypal, including shipping

    Looks like 1 11/16. A hair less than 1 3/4. The profile is shallower than a P - not as chunky. But not tapered like a Jazz. I'd say it's most similar to a StingRay.

    I have replaced the cracked pickguard in the original post with a brand new one from Chandler, it looks great.

    Thank you for all of the interesting trade offers. I'm really looking for a cash sale on this one, though, with one exception: a backup for my beloved L2500. The only thing I'd really be interested in for a trade would be a Tribby L2500.

    Thanks again!
