He's asking for $750 shipped, but seems to be open to negotiation. I've got the cash but am thinking that I can get him a bit lower. I've been pushing the "pimped" look, but I've always love the look of natural finishes ever since I played a natural jazz bass the very first time I performed in public.

 

This is an older model with the three bolt neck. The newer ones I believe are six.

 

Decisions. Decisions. Decisions.

I'm thinking of this final G&L layout:


ASAT: Tuned BEAD

L-2500 Trib: Tuned BEADG

L-2000: Tuned EADG


I'm actually thinking of selling the L-2000 and getting maybe an SB-2.

 

 

The L2K is way more versatile but the SB2 has some serious mojo going on. If you do get an SB2 I would say try to find an older one and try to find one ith the tone modification already done...although you could have Kindness do it fairly quickly I would imagine.

The SB-2 would work fine for you, but since you have an L-2000 you like and an L-2500 you like, perhaps there is something about the pickup/preamp config that you like? Regarding your posting in the other thread, maybe the ASAT is the way to go and not the SB-2 , simply because the tonal variety on the L's and ASATs are greater. You also aren't a fan of pick guards, IIRC.

I think you're right.

The guy that owns the bass in the orginal post isn't budging. We're only $25 apart. If he drops the price, I'll likely get it it. It seems neither of us is really willing to deal.

 

I'm now looking at this one:

the blue one doesn't float my boat, but to each his own. i did like the orangey one you posted a few days ago.

 

the natural one, however, is a beauty. (i nearly bought a L-2500 in that finish and neck arrangement) if it was me, and i really wanted that bass, i wouldn't want to lose the deal over $25.
