SOLD - G&L ASAT (dont jump to conclusions!)

I just got this off Kyle last week.. I LOVE it, it sounds great, plays great.. Its perfection, I was planning on replacing the neck with a rosewood board though (never been big on maple).

Necks can be ordered from G&L, ive had one priced up and.. it places it about the same as passing this one on and buying a new G&L with the neck I want (also, this neck has been plek'd for THIS bass, new neck would need to be dressed and set up.. Its vaguely criminal to molest a beautiful bass like this in that way and it may never be the same.

I'd be ordering the same bass with a rosewood board pretty much, (new neck is in the $600-700 range + setup, new G&L with the same specs is $1600 or so).

The bass..
Premium blueburst finish, swamp ash body, #8 Modern C neck (modern jazz style), abalone inlays, vintage case, quartersawn neck w/ clear satin finish, lock down bridge, light alloy tuners, plek setup, minimal fret wear (none really), 6 bolt neck..

Not a scratch or mark on it, some glossiness on the neck due to play.
Kyle got this earlier this year, its a Feb/March 2012 build

It was $999 from Kyle.
I'll do $950 due to me playing the snot out of it over the last week!
I'm in Coburg Melbourne, can ship anywhere.

Comes with certificates and paperwork

I'm already sorting the order of a new one, they really do make a lovely bass.

An give it 6 months, you can probably have the one I'm about to order.. You know how fickle I am!
What colour would you like Darren?!

A testament to good photography! Also, I guess people have been watching the saga of this one as I have.

Thanks very much

Two strap buttons so you can stand it up against a wall and it won't fall over. Why didn't someone think of that 50 years ago.

So I'm confused. Is this still for sale or was it sold again?

Bought a Schecter with 2 strap pins like that 30 years ago. Too soon?

The Dan Armstrong basses from the early 70s had that too

Great idea IMO. Not like Alembic, who incorporated a huge point on the end of their Basses just so you couldn't stand it up against a wall...
