    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    You've seen them on ebay, littering the place - the G&L basses personally signed by "Ms. Fender" herself selling for ridiculously high prices.

    Example

    I've rarely seen anyone bother to bid and I've NEVER seen anyone "win" :rolleyes: one.

    So what the hell?!? How do these jokers even stay in business?

    Supposedly all the certificates are hand signed by Ms. Leo Fender, not just those.

    I just checked 50 of the newest feedbacks & not one was a G&L. They do sell ALOT of acoustic guitars & other music related items.

    Is she any good?

    Considering the quality and tone of G&Ls, I think that $1199 for a new G&L is not bad at all. One could do a lot worse. On the other hand...I always buy used myself.

    I see them all the time, but just figure that's pretty much list price, isn't it? I think that's about what they sell for new.

    I don't buy them new. Looks like nobody else does on ebay either. Not when the used ones go for so much less.

    That semi-hollow fretless that's usually running sure does tempt me sometimes though!
