...And if this thing is fully functional and 9 lbs or less...

Well, if I were a bettin' man I'd bet on me hittin' it. Hard. Like, REAL hard.

Just sayin's'all.

Ad says it's passive, maybe this is the holy grail.

Nah, at least it's not like the early L-2000 passive from the 80s ad slick. The pic resolution isn't great but I'd ask for closeups of the pickups and of the underside of the control plate. Those pickups look like later versions to me and I'd make sure it's actually mahogany as well.

I live in Columbus. Well, just outside in the burbs. That GC is 15 minutes away.

They say it's passive but it has a battery cover on the back, so I doubt they are able to tell which kind of wood the body is. Not that I care. I'm not a "body wood effects the tone" kind of guy. I'm more of a "pickup placement and type of strings" kind of guy. And in G&L's case, pickups. Those MFD's have such a ballsy, gutsy, signature sound. And I just love those early G&L maple necks.

Like I said, it's got to be light and fully functional for me to even consider. I'm not doing any fixer-uppers. And truth be told, I REALLY shouldn't even be considering.

I sent them an email. Stay tuned...

DOH! 10 lbs. Too heavy for this wimp.

If somebody wants me to check it out for them, let me know.
