  1. Back on sale is this beautiful G&L SB-2, made in the USA in 1996, with an ash body, maple neck and FB, in great condition, ready to be played. The controls were modified to concentric stacked knobs for volume of the neck and bridge pickups, plus a tone control. The bass weighs 3.81 Kg (8.4 lbs). Itโ€™s OHSC is included, but look at the photos for reference.
  2. RETRACTED โ€” I plan to keep this bass for now. Thanks, BCers. ๐Ÿ‘
  3. Just an update... Here are my latest weight measurements using our bathroom scales: 19.6 lbs (8.89 Kg) combined weight of the bass and the case 8.4 lbs (3.81 Kg) weight of just the bass alone
  4. When was the last time you saw such nice wood combination in a G&L SB2 (USA)? Maple Neck... Maple FB... 2-piece Ash Body... Take-it-while-itโ€™s-still-available bump ๐Ÿ˜
  5. For those who asked... I hope this will make you decide. ๐Ÿ˜ I uploaded a bass demo of this SB-2 in YouTube. Check the description and click on the timeline hyperlink for each of the 9 settings I included. Bass demo link HERE.
  6. When I searched for โ€œg&l sb-2 nut widthโ€ on the internet it states 1.5โ€ I will measure the nut when I get home.
  7. A weekend bump for such a reliable workhorse ๐Ÿ‘

  9. Long post... I have never tried the FGN Magic Jazz, but I tried a few Fender J-basses (American, Mexican, and Japanese)... even Squiers... a Japanese Aerodyne PJ. Until now, I think they sounded great. Jazz basses are so common, that there are lots of materials on the internet about it, including how it sounds. I currently have a G&L SB-2 that sounds great as well. The things that I like in the SB-2 (which sets it apart from jazz basses and probably other brandโ€™s basses) are: - MFD pickups - saddle-lock bridge - tapered tuners - the comfortable c-shaped neck - slim curves of the body I feel a little hesitant to comment further about the SB-2, because my SB-2 is currently on sale here in BC. Although, I can elaborate further if needed. You may ask... Why sell if I like an SB-2 that much?! Itโ€™s GAS! GAS is really bad.
  10. SOLD: Ibanez TS9B Bass Tube Screamer Bass Pedal - Made in Japan - Original box included - In very good condition Kindly see photos for reference. Feel free to send me a message anytime ยฃ80 posted to a UK address
  11. Using our bathroom scale, I weighed myself with and without the bass, and the weight difference was ranging between 3.8Kg and 3.9Kg.
