New Old Bass Day - 1981 G&L SB-1

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Arizona Jones, Jul 21, 2016.

  1. Well, not mine, but a friend picked this up off Reverb, and I think it is just killer.

    Just read at the link below that these were first issued in 1982, is that correct? I guess it has to be, since it is on the G&L page. I guess the seller got it wrong.

    G&L USA SB-1

    I have a pretty sweet, well worn, '85 SB-1, and another '92, but neither is this cool.

    Love it! That aged yellow is so nice. Was it white originally?

    There was one of these in my local Sam Ash forever that they wanted a silly price for. It sounded fantastic. Beastly, growly thing. If it wasn't red and so expensive I definitely would've gotten it.

    I knew there was a new bass out there that I wanted to buy and have never seen before just now... I just knew it! That's a great looking bass.

    i really like mine. i think of it as a leo-designed 51 pbass reissue...1982 is closer to 1951 than to 2016 anyway
