    Vintage '82 G&L L-2000 E-series Mahogany Monster. Natural finished Mahogany body, rosewood board, 1-5/8 nut, black krinkle bridge and control plate, original preamp, serial #B009251, 9.5 lbs.
    Body is a 9.5 out of 10 and neck is an 8 out of 10 with lots of frets life as fret wear appears to be minimal. Neck is straight and fast, all pots sound clean and noise free, all switches appear to be doing thier job. IMHO

    $999 shipped

    Is the fretboard rosewood or ebony?
    If ebony, is it gaboon or macassar?

    This is posted twice by the way.

    How is the neck on this, can it be set up for nice, low action? Are the frets still in good shape?

    Does the Series E have the three position middle switch, as opposed to the standard two position on L2K's?

    E series signifies that it has electronics as opposed to being passive, I thought

    they're all active (and passive). I thought the E was to signify the difference between an active and passive L2000, but there never was a passive L2000...or maybe like 1 or 2 were made.

    Chef, can you please make your monthly post about the subtle differences between the different flavors of the L2000?

    Here we go.

    the "E" designation indicates it was one of the earliest produced. also, the skunk stripe on a non-Maple fingerboard seems to be rare, as well.

    nice bass!

    Okay, great! I just found that too... the center toggle on a standard L2K is for series or parallel, but looks like the E series has a third setting, with bass boost.
    Although I generally play mine in passive mode anyway, so not sure why I asked...:)
