    Since I am not a supporting member (yet), I am not able to post in the for sale area. Bummer. I just can't let you guys not know about this. I'm thinking this is a pretty decent deal.

    Moderators, feel free to shoot me. I consider it a sacrifice for the interest of others. ;)

    Anyway, here it is (not mine):


    G&L SB 1 Bass - $175
    1978 G&L Model SB-1 (Precision) Bass Guitar Sunburst, With Maple Neck

    (again, this is not mine and I am not able to post in the for sale area. I haven't abused this policy before and it's not likely I'll do it again, since I will be a supporting member soon).


  2. I think that as long as you're not connected to the sale, you're allowed to post ebay and craiglist links to great deals - so you should be fine ;)

    Killer deal, if the bass is in decent condition. Just mailed the seller. Many thanks for the heads up...!

    Well, I hope it works out. No, I'm definitely not connected, but I love bass(es) and this site. I'm just poor. (really poor) and I would rather see someone else score when I can't.

    I live in Austin and have a python script that "watches" the "free" and "musical instruments" sections of the Austin Craigs List and then sends it to my Blackberry.

    I keep hoping I'll get lucky and find a (CHEAP) drum machine or metronome for use when practicing. I'm working very hard right now on grooves and timing (Using Ed Friedlands book, "Bass Grooves") with 3 other bassists.

    You are correct! Research shows the first one was built in early 1980. I posted a reply to the ad on Craigs List concerning that fact and suggested that the owner correct the date issue.
