On Hold: 1999 G&L L-2000 Transluscent Blonde, Maple Neck, OHSC

Recommended Posts

G&L L2000 USA 4 string bass guitar (1999). Ash body finished in Translucent Blonde with a maple neck/fretboard. Rare. It will be sold complete with it's G&L certificate of authenticity, along with warranty cards, electronics instructions and the original purchase receipt.

The foundation of the L-2000 is a pair of G&L Magnetic Field Design humbuckers backed by the flexible Tri-Tone control system, providing the sort of versatility that’ll let you find your tone no matter what kind of bass line you’re laying down. The Tri-Tone system features a trio of mini toggles for pickup selection, series/parallel signal routing and active/passive operation, as well as a trio of knobs for volume, treble and bass. A truly dynamic sounding bass with gorgeous looks & superb playability.

Neck: Slender profile hard rock maple neck with black side-dots. Maple fingerboard with black dot inlays. Frets are in great shape with very little wear at all. G&L open-gear tuners are in perfect working condition. 1 5/8" nut width; 34" scale length. Neck is straight & true. Truss rod works perfectly.
Body: Contoured, solid ash body finished in Translucent Blonde. Top-loading G&L Saddle-Lock bridge with adjustable saddles.

Electronics: Two G&L Magnetic Field Design humbuckers with Tri-Tone control system. 3 mini toggles for pickup selection, series/parallel signal routing & active/passive operation; 3 knurled control knobs for volume, treble & bass. This runs from a 9V battery (i.e. PP3). Due to the age of the instrument there is a very, very small amount of crackle when adjusting the pots, but only when adjusting, I have subsequently used contact cleaner and there's no crackle now, but wanted to state this in the interests of being honest - there is NO crackle when not adjusting the pots.

Cosmetically this bass is in (almost) immaculate condition. Which is incredible when you consider it is actually 22 years old. It's an ash body and the grain of the wood looks beautiful through the translucent finish. There are some very, very fine surface scratches on the surface (impossible not to have some surface scratches on any bass that's been played) but the bass has to be viewed from certain angles for these to even be seen. There is also single tiny dent near the strap button on the bottom edge of the bass (detailed in the pictures - it's about as big as one of the screw heads in the bridge) which is only noticeable if you point it out, but other than this - the bass is in excellent condition. Other than these two things, the bas is immaculate. It's a hell of a lot of bass for the money.

*The rear battery/electronics cover is signed by Mark King (Level 42) from Ronnie Scotts (Birmingham) back in 2000/01.
It has NEVER, EVER been gigged, and it's condition is proof of that. 
Case: G&L hardshell case included along with one key.

It comes from a smoke-free home.

So to be clear the bass is not for sale at the moment, I am not averse and will price for cash accordingly, the value shown is for trade purposes. I am ideally looking for a couple of things in trade, Spector Euro (4 or 5), German Warwick (Not chinese, Rockbass or corvette please), 2EQ Stingray. I can also chuck in a Barefaced Supertwin MkIII for the right bass trade. 

For shipping in the UK, Parcelforce will be used with a cost of £25 GBP. If the buyer wants full insurance, there is an additional £30 charge on top of this.
For international deliveries, I will obtain a quote before purchase.

Local collection also available & preferable, but facemasks required as per current n-CoV19 protocol!
