⚌Reduced‼ G&L L-2000 E Series Bass Sunburst, 2016

⚌Reduced‼  G&L L-2000 E Series Bass Sunburst, 2016

Introduced in 1980, the G&L L-2000 bass was one of Leo Fender’s last bass designs.   The first was the 1953 Fender Precision Bass and it’s hard to overstate its influence on how music is presented.  This example dates to 2016 at the G&L shop on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, and is in very good, clean original condition. It plays well, and the finish and frets have very little wear.

Fender Precision Bass Sunburst, 1967

Fender Precision Bass Sunburst, 1967

Here is one of the cleanest vintage Fender Precision Basses we’ve seen in a while, dating to 1967 and with its original case, bridge and pickup covers. The Fender Precision Bass, introduced in late 1951 as a logical progression from Fender’s guitar design, has been hands down one of the most influential musical instrument designs in history.

The Ampeg ASB-1 Devil Bass, and its fretless sibling the AUSB-1 was built by Ampeg designer Mike Roman from late 1966 to 1967.

Fender Jazz Bass V American Standard Sunburst, 2016

Fender Jazz Bass V American Standard Sunburst, 2016

The Fender Jazz Bass V, as an American Standard version, was built from 1998 to 2000, then from 2008 to 2016. The American Standard name was dropped in 2017 to be replaced by the American Professional line. Despite being listed in catalogs as the “Jazz Bass V”, the “V” does not appear on the headstock logo of this instrument. The five-string bass seems to have appeared in 1965 as the short-lived Fender Bass V.

Gibson Les Paul Triumph Bass Natural, 1973

Gibson Les Paul Triumph Bass Natural, 1973

A wonderful rarity – a Gibson Les Paul Triumph Bass in natural finish! Introduced in 1971, the Triumph bass followed closely the Les Paul Bass, introduced in 1969.   The construction of the Gibson Les Paul Triumph bass is perhaps closest to the original Les Paul Custom, in that aside from the fingerboard, it’s entirely Mahogany including the carved top. No Maple cap! However, that’s where the similarities end, as the Les Paul and Triumph basses have low-impedance pickups and extra controls.
