    Well, here we go again.

    I just upsized and now I'm downsizing. Sort of anyway. I bought 3 and I'm after 2. All three of my recently acquired G&Ls are up for grabs because I'm after two things: a different-colored G&L L2000 and a Stingray Special single H (newest series.) So unless you have one of those basses, I'll probably pass on a trade. Nonetheless, it doesn't hurt to ask!

    This is a 1992 G&L SB-1. Breathtaking emerald green metallic finish with the original big, mean, nasty rock 'n roll MFD split pickup. Maple fingerboard. Original tuners were sold and have been replaced with black Hipshot lollipops. Original pickguard was sold and has been replaced with a gorgeous black abalone pickguard courtesy of Tony Dudzik at Pickguardian. Weighs about 9.4 lbs and I believe the nut is 1.67" with a 7.5" fingerboard radius. Frets recently dressed and leveled by Drake Custom bass and it plays like pure, amplified butter. Pictured G&L case is NOT included (it sold with a different bass) but I WILL include your choice of either a nearly-new high quality "Music Area" gig bag (Chinese import Amazon special of shockingly high quality) or a JCR hard/soft case. See pictures of both cases. Great shape overall, a few small minor cosmetic blemishes, but it's a 28 year old bass - so I'd say that it has been very-well maintained.

    Here is what she looks like with the new pickguard. The original pickguard was sold back to the previous owner. My little Siamese mix cat Korra ran into one of the pictures, lol.

    I paid a good sum of money for a fret dress/level, tuners + tuner installation, new strings and setup. Not currently available in the lower 48 USA. I am open to fair offers. And, see my comment at the beginning of this listing regarding trades.

    Tim is such a BassHo.

    I permanently downsized half a dozen basses and unlike him I haven't purchased hardly any since.

    Didn’t know that was even a thing. Before reading your post, if I had opened one of my G&L cases and smelled cookies, I would have thought I was having a stroke and immediately headed for the nearest emergency room! Now at least I will know not to panic if it ever happens, so thanks for the public service announcement! ;)

    I swear the new ones do and I've heard others mention it too. This bass may be too old but I thought I detected a whiff of cookie when I took it out of its case yesterday :D

    Free bump for a beautiful bass from a fellow Siamese Tabby (MiMi, below) & SB-1 owner. These basses sound fantastic!

    Thanks! She's beautiful! While I could spend all day posting pictures of my cats, I will spare you guys, lol. However, I will say that MiMi looks just like my Korra - same face markings etc.

    Update on the case/gig bag:
    Pictured G&L case is NOT included (it sold with a different bass) but I WILL include your choice of either a nearly-new high quality "Music Area" gig bag (Chinese import Amazon special of shockingly high quality) or a JCR hard/soft case. See pictures of both cases. (Don't worry, I'll clean them, lol)

    She wasn't as cheap as my Ragdoll but they're both the best cats ever!

    Taking this down. I've had a couple of deals go south on my recent listings and I'm a bit soured on selling basses at the moment. I'm going to keep this beauty for now and reevaluate things.
