    So I own a G&L tribute l-2000 thats had it body cut up, i received this as a gift and im thinking of parting ways with it. The problem is that i doubt anyone would buy it with the way the body is(or worth little to no value). Does anyone know how much it would cost for someone to create a body replica that's suitable for the bass? or how hard it would be to create my own?

    I know it's a Tribute, but isn't there some sort of special hell for people who do this kind of thing to L2Ks?:eek:

    Haha, I'm not sure, it's the first time I've ever seen something like this, it still plays well and sounds great, its also lighter.... so i guess that's a plus to it!

    Been thinking of selling it and I'm not sure anyone would purchase it in the shape the bodies in.

    Me too my belly is getting too big.
  6. Buy a nice piece of ash and make the body you always wanted to have.
    Nice project to start building basses.
    Everything is there.

    Or you can just saw that ugly piece of and glue on another piece , totaly different kind of wood, don't try to hide it, and reshape it.

    Anybody will buy anything if the price is right. Getting a new body made and finshed will probably cost you upwards of$300, you see thse bodies on ebay ocassionally, I have seen a couple this year. Good luck

    I would personally buy that bass. We would be the ugly duo.
