***** NOW SOLD PENDING PAYMENT *****

 

I purchased this from a fellow Bass Chat member just over 2 years ago. It's a 1998 model made from swamp ash with a rosewood board.

 

I recently had a newer G&L pre-amp fitted by KGB music in Birkenhead and Barry commented on how it stood out as a very resonant bass versus the other G&L's he's previously come across.

 

The B string sounds very focused due to the through-body stringing and 3 over 2 headstock. It has a great action and plays very easy up and down the neck. Considering its age, there's no high frets or buzzing.

 

It has a lot of flexibility due to the pre-amp and has the G&L growl from the combination of the pickups and preamp. It has  a big, heavy sound with a very powerul output.

 

There are signs of wear on the bass; the tuners are tarnished but work perfectly well. There's various smaller marks and scratches on the body and a small crack around the gloss finish near one of the pots (see photo below), but not the wood and the pot itself is not damaged (brand new as part of the pre-amp recently fitted). The nut looks yellowed, but no signs of damage. Weighs 9.8 lbs.

 

Recently put some new Ernie Ball Nickel's on (super long) and much prefer them to D'Addario. Great detail in the sound of the B string.

 

As mentioned previously; I've had a new G&L pre-amp fitted and also a newer bridge. Comes with a G&L case.

 

The reason I am selling is that I have a U.S. L2000 and other 4 strings and am less into 5 string basses these days due to the music I am now playing.

 

Asking price as above plus shipping. Located on Merseyside.
