G&L

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by scottos150, Jan 17, 2002.


  1. What do prices run on G&L's?
     
  2. I dont know model numbers or anything, but street price starts at around a grand ( maybe it was used though). Id say around 1200 for a good one
     
  3. You can get GL-2000 basic model for $900.

    check places like ebay. The used market it great for G&L's. You can very good ones for about 1/2 to 2/3 price used.

  5. I saw a used left handed L2000 with a basic finish and rosewood fretboard at Guitar Center for $1200. They sure seem to put a lot of value on their left handed models.:rolleyes: ;) I wanted to put a sign next to the price that said, "RIP OFF!"

    A very rough base line, but on the average new in the $900-1200 range and used from as low as the mid $400's to $700. If you can get a used one from the late 80's or early to mid 90's for arround $500 to $600, you would be very happy I think. The new ones are great basses but the used ones are just as good if not better for half the price. Which model are you intersted in?

    I'm not a lefty, but I think a lot of bass manufacturers and/or retailers rip the leftys on price a bit.

    Be on the lookout for bargains on G&L's in general though if they are even slightly used. I bought one of my L-2000's for only $500 on ebay once. It was mint, I mean brand spankin' new. It looked like it hadn't even been played let alone taken out of the nice G&L hardshell case that is standard with their basses. Not a scratch, smudge, nothing. It was not even a year old at the time I bought it from the seller. I think he needed quick cash, so you never know, keep those eyes peeled! :)
     
  8. basic model for over 1200 is total rip off., basically GC and MS is rip off price.

    So let's say I find myself a new L-2000 for $800, am I looking at a fun little deal here, or should I look to knock that price down a bit?

    Thanks! :cool:
     
  10. I bought an L2500 a couple years ago for $900 and I thought I got a great deal. I think $800 is a very fair price for a new L2000.;)

    I agree, $800 for a new L-2000 is about the lowest I would normally expect to see.
     
  12. $800 and brand new? Go for it.

    Check with www.bassnw.com. Last year, they were going to sell me a brand new L-2000 for $699 plus shipping. I can't guarentee that these same deals are still going, but still, that is the absolute lowest that I have ever heard of em going for new. Check the "Special Sale G&L Basses" section, and give them a call or an email.

    I really should have bought that bass for that price.:(

    Thanks for the responses there...now I wish I only had $800! Well, I hope they keep that bass around for a while! That thing was an absolute dream to play.
     
  17. Get it from Bass northwest. I got mine for about $700 something, and it's brand new.
