    Yas!


    - 9lbs 5oz

    - MFD P-J pickups

    - black finish with natural body binding

    - brand new tort pickguard installed

    - 1.5" nut width satin neck

    - PLEKed quartersawn neck

    - G&L tolex case in excellent shape


    The bass overall is in very nice shape. There is a dink on the edge binding below the controls, little indents (zipper?) on the end of the headstock, and a handful of little marks on the otherwise mirror like black finish. Neck and fingerboard perfect as are the frets.

    The natural body binding and quartersawn neck are nice upgrades. The pickguard is brand new and has only been on the bass for a couple of weeks. The case is in excellent clean condition. The previous owner did a pretty serious copper shielding job and the single coil pickup is very quiet. The vol/vol wiring harness is brand new - custom made w/ solderless connectors. The bridge volume pot wiggles a bit **edit:fixed** but works just fine.

    I love everything about this bass but the tone. Even though it's passive it still has that G&L sizzle, very hot and aggressive in nature and there is no reason to be dialing this out like I have. It's the nature of the beast! More pix now, please axe me if you have questions. Thanks!

    REDUCED now $775 will split shipping lower 48 only. PayPal ok

    For inquiring minds it's a #8 neck.

    What is the Fretboard wood?

    I agree! That is a nice slab of dark rosewood. I gave it the spa treatment and conditioned the board with orange oil and beeswax which soaked in and darkened it. You can't really tell but the abalone dot markers look like rainbow opal. Very pretty!

    Please make me an offer. I've just found the bass I didn't know I was looking for!

    I'm 90% it's rosewood but it is so uniform I could be wrong. No build sheet came with it.
