Price or Trade Value : £750

Back up for sale as it is too nice to drag around as a back-up. It has had a recent set up.

G&L arguably represented the pinnacle of Leo Fender's R&D. This is a great playing and sounding bass with plenty of thump.

This is my back up bass and is in superb condition for it's age. It has a couple of indentations in the body-great for a late 90's bass.
Note: The pervious owner made a reversible mod. : "I have fitted 5 machine screws into the through-body holes, secured with nuts and washers that sit flush in the ferrules on the rear. They are easily removed if you want to string through-body".

The bass sports one monstrous MFD (magnetic field design) pickup with adjustable pole pieces, a volume control, and passive treble and bass controls. There are also 2 switches: one selects series or parallel coils in the pickup; the other brings in the active circuit, which effectively takes the sound of the bass from vintage to modern. Current draw for the circuit is incredibly low - my batteries go out of date rather than running flat!

Any trial Welcome :)

Trades? A nice quality short scale?

Thanks for looking.
