What do you guys think about this one?

Looks nice! On Ebay. Seller is Bass San Diego.

9 lbs, 1 oz. 2014. Full warranty. Really nice color, IMO. Love G&L finishes!

Only thing that concerns me is the #7 neck. Had a 90's L2k with the bi-cut neck that was 1.75" and it was a freakin' baseball bat. Wasn't the nut width that bothered me but the thickness of the neck front-to-back combined with the 1.75" neck. Would these newer ones have a thinner front-to-back neck than the 90's bi-cuts? If so I may have to hit this one.

I looked all over the ad. Where does it say "Full Warranty"? The reason I ask is that G&L factory warranties are for the original owner and are not transferable. I don't mean to burst your bubble, but eyes open. Maybe it's a Bass San Diego warranty?

If it was pre-2008, I'd say that you run a fair risk of baseball bat. Post 2008 the bass necks got thinner, with it really being noticeable in the 5 strings. This is a 2014, so it'll probably be thinner than you've experienced with the Bi-Cut neck. Another thing that is nice about the later necks is that the edges are nicely rolled. Earlier necks had sharper edges and it was really evident, at least to me, with the #7 neck.

First off, it's in "prefect" condition, so how can you resist?? I agree with Ken, this should have a slimmer neck front to back vs 90's necks.

Guys, thanks a TON for your input!!

Ken, I talked to a Chris at BSD and he said the G&L Warranty still applies. It was a quick return (after a couple of days) after a sale at BSD, FWIW.

Price may be too hard to resist. Weight is nice. Sounds like it'll be slimmer front to back on the neck. I really don't know about nut width. I mean, I KNOW I can't do 1.5". It's kind of a toss up between the other two nut widths for me, especially with the thinner front to back neck.

And bought and paid for.

Turns out it's a #12 neck after all! That was the final straw for me. I'm only human, after all!

You just might really love the #12 neck.

By "just might really love" I mean... Well, a lot of people really love the #12 neck; no "just might" involved. This, however, is Mr. Mom and allowances must be made.

So, I sincerely hope that congratulations are in order. If not, who's calling dibs? [smilie=cheeky-smiley-025.gif]

Oops! Was thinking of a different thread I started in this G&L forum.

Look at post #3 in "When it comes right down to it..."

Well, your doubt in my faithfulness to this incoming bass does have merit. I'll give you guys that.

But you never know! Maybe this'll be "the one"!!

I dunno, but something's telling me that this one is gonna stick. The modern #12 neck is really nice.
