This auction is for one vintage G&L model L-1000 bass guitar !
This is a much coveted model, from the final and finest company of the late Leo Fender !
He began building G&Ls in his factory in Fullerton, CA in 1980, and even he said these were the best guitars he ever made !
This bass is circa 1984, and is one of the best G&L basses I have ever played !
The action and tone on this bass is unbelievable !
The body is a very nicely grained ash, finished in Premium Clear Red ! It is a really deep blood red color, though the pictures seem to show it brighter !
The best part of this story is you get the tone of an ash body, but the bass weighs in at just over 8.5 lbs !
The neck is a hard rock maple, and has yellowed perfectly with age ! It looks and feels fantastic !
Neck is super straight, the truss rod works perfectly, and action is nice and low, with no buzzing or dead spots !
In fact, this bass has been put up against many basses from many manufacturers, and it has knocked them all out !
The single MFD pickup is a design from Leo that is quite possibly the perfect bass pickup !
The bass runs fully passive, so it gives great rich vintage tone, but has so much more than most basses ! Super fat, and punches through any mix !
When in doubt, you can flip a switch into what us G&L bass players like to call the OMG mode ! This switch position allows for single coil tone, by splitting the hum
