G&L L-5000 5-string bass *RARE* – $666

Date: 2012-05-28

This 1989 5-string bass is one of the last of the original Leo Fender designs. Only 400 of these basses were ever made.
Amazing tone and huge low-end, this is truly a fantastic bass. Plays real smooth and has a great feel.
I am very reluctant to sell this bass as it has served me very well over the years.
Alas, times are tough and remember, you may never find one of these again.
