Using our bathroom scale, I weighed myself with and without the bass, and the weight difference was ranging between 3.8Kg and 3.9Kg.

Yep - this is one of them - these MFD’s are OK - I just don’t like the big MM type MFD

What's the control layout? One of the pots looks stacked, so perhaps vol/tone, and a pan pot?

Thanks. 

2 volumes, one for each pickup, no tone control. Takes a bit of getting used to but you can coax some nice tones. Its almost my favourite bass.

Hi!

Here are the controls:

- Stacked volume knobs for the neck (top) and bridge (bottom) pickups

- Tone control knob 

 

Also, you click on the above hyperlink (on my topmost post) for the YT video of the specs... alternatively, here’s the link:

Very nice, I like it. Last year of the 3-bolt necks, still has a lot of the old G&L character before they became, for me, a bit too generic.

Very reasonable price, too; good luck with a sale.

What’s the nut width?

Cheers. 

When I searched for “g&l sb-2 nut width” on the internet it states 1.5”

I will measure the nut when I get home.

      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). It’s OHSC is included, but look at the photos for reference.

      Don't really want to sell this but I've finally accepted that when I think "bass" I think "passive Fender" and I can't justify keeping this one, as good as it is. Bought brand new by me circa 2014. I believe that the Tribute M-2000 has been discontinued by G&L and from what I can see this finish was one of the harder to find ones.  £450 seems a sensible starting point given the cost when new, as well as the silly priced ones I've seen elsewhere. 
      G&L M-2000 Tribute GTS TB - bit of a mouthfull, but essentially its a Tribute M-2000, in a lovely translucent black finish (a nightmare to photograph ), with top-binding as well as a lovely carved/shaped top a bit like you get on Fender aerodyne models. Black headstock. 
      The electronics are seriously powerful - an active preamp (unlike the L2000 there is no passive mode), with volume, pan, and 3-band boost/cut EQ with centre detents. Two humbucking MFD pickups. There's a lot of sounds in here but the controls are very simple to understand. 34" bolt-on neck. 
      Neck is really nice, smaller than the baseball bat you get on the L2000. Currently strung with some fender roundwounds that have hardly been played. 
      I would really rather not post this, so collection from Burntisland, Fife - or can potentially meet in/around the West End of Edinburgh during the week. If you really want it and you're not local then I might be able to find a box and arrange a courier at cost. Hit me up if you're interested.

      (I really don't "want" trades - but would potentially be interested in something jazz / jaguar flavoured with either 4 or 5 strings, part-ex against some Smallsound/Bigsound pedals - TAFM or F*ck overdrive, or maybe a micro/mini bass amp head)
