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.

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.

      For sale is this G&L L5000. This serie was the last serie Leo Fender worked on (design that is ofcourse). Only around 400 L5000 basses were ever produced and a handfull of them them were fretless.

      This 1992 L5000 is in extremely good condition, only a few slight dents (but you really have to search). It comes with the original case. Plays like a dream and with the current d'addario tapewounds it sings with loads of mwahhh. I'm asking 699 GBP.

      The bass is located in the Netherlands but safe shipping is ofcourse possible.

      I've added a really short video as an example of how the bass sounds. Listening with headphones adviced. I played some low and some high melodic stuff. Not the best video quality but it's better than nothing I guess.

      Selling one of my two Tribute JB-2 basses, this one is a 2008 build in excellent condition with a nice comfy Jazz bass profile maple neck, Alnico J single coils pickups and G&L saddle lock bridge. No playing, mechanical, structural or electronics issues with the bass at all.
      A previous owner fitted a tug bar on the treble side and the bass is now fitted with flat wound strings (can put roundwound back on if preferred) Nice and light in weight
      **SOLD**
       Buyer can arrange their own courier or I will get prices for shipping

      Price dropped to £395.    Now £375
      I must stop buying guitars
      Anyway, this is a nice early example of a Tribute Asat, equipped with Leo's very powerful MFD pick ups.
      Very good condition, with one dink to the top horn and one on the back of the neck (see pics).
      Everything works as it should and the weight is just over 8lb.
      I've given it a proper clean , set up and a new set of D'Addarios. 
      Decent hard case included.
      Price is £ 425  now £375. Collection preferred but can courier for around £20 (mainland only)
