    2 items for sale:
    -Early 80's G&L SB2 4 string bass; 2 single coil J-pickups, 3 way switch, vol and tone knobs. Older style headstock, maple neck and fingerboard, black body and bridge. Lots of minor dings and scratches, typical of a 20+ year old bass, but nothing major. Plays well and neck is straight, sound is very big for passive single coils - definately more output than a fender jazz. $375 includes Peavey hard case (the original G&L case is now useless). Sorry I have no pics but local sale prefered (NYC area).
    -Also selling an SWR 4x8 speaker cab. 250 watts, 8 ohms, speakers are in perfect working order, carpeting is only slightly marked - none is missing. One of the best sounding cabs I've ever owned, just don't need it anymore. Includes wheels, but the cab is not too heavy at under 60 lbs. Nice tight low end and crisp highs - I barely used the tweeter. For some reason, SWR doesn't make this cab anymore so they're hard to find. Will sell for $300; local sale only around NYC area - sorry no pics.

    Sorry - I forgot to mention I have no means of posting pics. There are no major blemishes on the bass - and they'd be hard to see in a picture anyway. But anyone is welcome to come try it out in person.

    I'll try again before I attempt a trade in - for either a Pre EB MM Sabre or an early G&L L2000E

    With 2 J pups it would be a JB-2, not an SB-2.
     
  9. Nope. The early SB-2's had 2 J style pups.

    are the j pickups in here the standard shape jazz pickups? or are they the shape that they are using today at G&L. would a standard jazz replacement pickup fit?

    The early SB2 pickups are wider than Fender Jazz pickups from what I can tell. They also have a higher output and don't buzz as much. Great pickups IMO, I wouldn't replace them.
