On hold G&L LB100 U.S.A. P bass
£950
Hoddesdon.

Recommended Posts

A stunning example of Leo Fender’s G&L P bass.

It’s a proper U.S. model built in 2016 at the Fullerton, California plant. Hang tag, warranty card, certificate, spec sheet etc is included.

 

Alder body.

Finish is cherry burst.

The three ply guard is more like the lovely old vintage looking tort.

Saddle lock bridge.

9.5 radius dark Rosewood fret board. Bone nut. Width at the nut is 1.5/8th”.

Frets are medium/jumbo and all seated and finished perfectly.

G&L Alnico pick up

G&L ultralite tuners.

Weight is 9lb 12oz.

Original hard-shell, black tolex case, which looks almost as new.

 

This bass has not had a hard life, the first owner only used it at home, I’ve gigged it twice.

Although I believe it left the factory,  with round wound strings, the previous owner fitted a set of flats, so there is no fret wear.

Condition is near perfect, with just a little swirling/signs of use to the pick guard.

 

Lovely tight, neck pocket and with six securing screws, the neck/body joint is rock solid.

I love this bass, it’s comfortable to play seated or standing, looks amazing and sounds great in a band setting.

My reason for selling? Well a near miss last night, on a crowded stage, when our drummer knocked over a heavy cymbal stand, made me rethink gigging with a pristine instrument like this. I’m going to use my old G&L and a P bass that I built for myself, both of which sport war wounds and genuine road wear.

Hopefully the photos will give a good indication of the condition. Anything that looks like a blemish or damage to the body finish, is purely down to my photography.

 

Price is £950.

I’m in Hoddesdon, Herts. Would really prefer collection but we can discuss shipping if necessary.

Lovely basses these - I have a black and maple one and it’s my main gigging bass these days.

As above, I have one and it sounds monster with flats or rounds, really woody tone and super comfortable to play. Hope it finds an appreciative home.

I've only used it with flats but yes bet it sounds great with rounds.

Beautiful colour :o

It is. Each time that I look at it, I think the same. Really not sure about selling it :)

Love US G & L had a Sb-2 and rather foolishly sold it.   Got a Tribute Kiltoton now.  G & L are really stealth basses, deserve more attention than they get.

I once had CAR LB100. Great bass like G&L's are. I don't know why I sold it. Regrets.

C'mon guys, I cannot believe this beauty is still available. Can someone please buy it? Otherwise, I have to do it and then have to explain to my wife why I had to buy yet another bass even though I will never have a career in music? 😎

This is why I can't buy such a beautiful bass. I have one expensive (to me) instrument and I never use it for fear of damage. 

This is even more stunning.

      Here you will find a complete sound test of the Fender Precision American Performer for those who want to hear all the nuances of the passive American Precision PJ .. I hope it will be useful especially to those who were considering the purchase of this bass! 😉 https://youtu.be/eNECPg6ztdg

      Hi, relisting my L2000 tribute as despite marking it as sold a month or two ago the sale could not be completed. No problems. Thought about keeping it but.....
      To simplify the process I'm relisting it with shipping and insurance via Parcelforce included in the price as it doesn't feel like travel restrictions will be lifted any time soon. As a result the price is higher than the previous listing. I think this is for the best though as iv heard a few nasty shipping related mishaps on here of late and want piece of mind so no one loses out at either end of the process should something bad happen.
      Planning to ship it in a good sized chunky, strong bubble wrapped box with old soft case as well. Happy to provide a picture if anyone is curious about the packaging. I received a bass in this package myself from France prior to Brexit so should be good. 
      Slight dink which i've tried to picture but it does not affect playability and is fairly smooth to the touch. Bass is as new apart from this mark.
      Thanks for looking.
