    bad photos .. sorry .. but spalted maple g&l 2000...

    traded my '98 warwick thumb for it straight up at a local shop.. i liked the thumb, but i wouldn't use it in a gig due to weight and neck dive. This thing is awesome, took it to practice yesterday and the rest of the band said that thing cut through better than my MM sterling and the thumb, I agreed..

    holy crap dude, EXCELLENT choice.... Thumbs are nice but this thing drips character!

    plus it's a G&L, so I already know how good it must sound/play....

    I've got my sights on a semi-hollow ASAT next year!

    Beautiful! I've never seen a G&L in that wood/finish.

    1 3/4 nut? Vintage frets? Cool top? Sounds like my kind of bass! Hope you have lots of fun with it :)

    P.S. To djwacfriz: I live in Astoria too!

    Wow. I'm not usually even a fan of spalted maple, but on that body shape it looks sick.
    Very cool.

    I'm noticing there are quite a few of us TBers in Astoria!! We should do a meet up at the beer garden...
     
  13. I love the thumb but this is amazing. Ive always wanted to play a L2000 but none of the music stores in my area have one.

    I was in Astoria up until a little less than a year ago, myself :) The Beer Garden is never a bad time.

    Nice find on that G&L! I've never been too keen on spalted maple, but the fact that it's on an L-2000 makes it much cooler!
