    I've got 4 US G&LS for sale. I had WAY too much fun at Xmas, and need to pay some bills, so let's blow these out!

    Descriptions and pix further down. But the Executive Summary is:

    1981 trans green L-1000. Very minty! SOLD

    Recent 'burst L-1505. $650 + shipping.

    Mid 90s LB-100. Minty, and light! SOLD

    1981 trans red L-1000 with very recent 1.5" neck. SOLD

    No trades will be considered for the L-1505 or the LB-100.

    For the Wunkays, I will consider trades. I'm interested in Gibsons, vintage Fenders, Guilds, US Laklands, EBMM stuff (no OLP or SUB, please). Might consider a Ric. I can trade up or down, but please don't offer me two Jay Tursers and a smashed, half-functional bass wah for one of these Wunkays.

    Minty 1981 L-1000 (slot pole, chrome plate & bridge, B 004XXX) in trans green over ash, maple neck. Almost no flaws except the one ding pictured, a little (very, very light) scuffing in the clear coat (pick scratches and buckle rash), and the chrome has chipped off the bass knob. Non-original hsc, and 11 lbs. Nut measures a hair over 1 5/8".
    On hold pending payment.

    G&L L-1505 in burst/rosewood. CL serial number, so relatively recent. Comes with G&L molded plastic case. It's a long story, but this bass lives with my brother in Massachusetts, and it will be shipped from there. Local pickup is available in the 'burbs north of Boston.
    $650 + shipping.

    Whole set of pix here.

    Mid-90s LB-100. After Leo Fender died, G&L released the Legacy bass, honoring the design that changed the bass world. G&L was subsequently sued for use of the name, and changed it to the LB-100. It's basically G&Ls Precision bass. Top notch build quality, and sounds great. Light, too - 8.25 lbs, I think? I picked this up around Thanksgiving from a TBer for a great price, and will pass it on for a great price as well. Ships in a gig bag. On hold pending payment.

    1981 trans red L-1000 body and hardware/electronics mated with a neck that must have been made during the recent BABP run, because it's got the gun oil tint (GOT) finish and it's 1.5" at the nut. Neck is pristine, and is a 3 bolt (NOT a 6 bolt), so it lined up perfectly. Body has a some finish crazing and a few nicks and bumps but nothing major. The body has the slot pole pickup, the correct knobs and switch tip, and a B00 serial number.
    On hold pending payment.
