Price or Trade Value : £899For sale only, no trades please is my Unusual USA G&L L1000.
Regarded by many as Leo's best bass.
The previous owner advised me that he believed this to be a custom / special order G&L.
Curiously this has the headstock normally found on the SB 2 - The decal does have a just about visible outline around it, so possibly a rebadged SB 2 Neck? Please see photos.
I have also shown photos of neck heel / pocket.
I can't see a serial number in any of the usual G&L places.
The micro tilt mechanism appears to be over a partial date stamp, as can be seen on the photographs below.
I believe the lovely sparkly colour dates it to around the early 1990's
Very good overal condition given the age, say 8.5/10 - a few dings, scrapes here and there, some of the finish has chipped away near the neck pocket - I have shown this in the photographs.
Plenty of life in the frets.
There are hairline scuffs on the fretboard, the sort you get from cleaning / polishing too much from the looks of them - Again, I have tried to show this in the photographs.
Passive electronics ,series/parallel switch.
More tonal options than a Precision.
Passive but powerful MFD pickup in the Precision spot.
The pickup is a monster with three settings to give a variety of tones.
The three way switch is parallel, single coil and series with bass boost for the single MFD humbucker.
Comes with the G&L case - although the case feet have been bumped into the case housing - Again, shown in photographs.
I'm happy to swap out the case for something else if you'd prefer.
Price is £899 shipped Mainland UK.
I'm in Chorley ,Lancashire.
