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-it’s-still-available bump 😁

For those who asked... I hope this will make you decide. 😁

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.

Great demo - in that it really gives a feel of what the bass sounds like

My Tribute is tucked away while I persevere with 5ers but everytime I see this thread I'm tempted to get it back out.

This is such a good price for a quality instrument. Great videos as well. GLWTS

Weight please?

Just an update...

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

I cannot believe this cool bass still hasn't been snatched up. Made in SoCal, in great condition, at a fair price, and with the tone control that some people miss on the SB-2. The jazz nut width is the only thing keeping me from buying this amazing bass myself.

Absolute bargain, if this had an F on the headstock it would be twice the price and half the bass!

I can’t believe this is still here, these are great sounding and playing instruments, if I didn’t have 2 already I would have snapped this up

      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)
