Hello! I have been shopping around for G&L basses for a few months now, and haven't exactly found it easy to get my hands on them to play - they're not nearly as abundant as Fenders or even Music Man's. But I'm ready to buy! I have been playing a MIM P-Bass for > 10 years, as well as an old 1940 Kay Upright for the past couple years.
I've got my eye on one in particular on EBay that ends in a few hours - just wondering if someone can give me a quick valuation of what an '81 L-2000E in relatively good condition is worth in the current market. My Vintage Guitar Collector book says $800 - $950, but that was printed a couple years ago, before what I perceive to be an overall downward trend in the used market with the economy. (yeah?)
Here is a link to the bass: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... CA:US:1120
I know this opens up to me being outbid by putting it out here on this specialized board but hey - you guys are probably looking all the time anyway if you're in the market for one. I have put up what I believe to be a pretty good bid on it, but haven't yet met the reserve, and am reluctant to keep climbing on it (but I'm eager to get my hands on one at the same time!)
How high should I go on this one, from your experienced perspective?
I'm surprised the "Used" section of this board is completely empty. Any reason why? Just because of the minimum of 20 "regular" posts prior to soliciting?
Thanks in advance for your wisdom.
