This might be the first used sunburst tribute I've seen. A pretty good price, too.

There’s one at GC for a bit less money!

One of these days I’m going to go through and compile every lefty they have that isn’t listed as such.

One of these damn days I’ll grab one of these used. I still have never tried a G&L.

Hi All, reviving this thread as I bought the GC Tribute :mrgreen: So I’ve probably purchased more than 30 basses from the GC used gear site over the years, and of course there are always lemons that don’t even make it home (a thrashed MIJ jazz comes to mind), but this one blew me away. As usual, the GC pics did not do it justice. I read it came with a case, and expected a battered gear bag, but no, the previous owner had bought an actual G&L hard case! Wowzer!

I had one of these tributes back in the early 2000’s. I remember saving up for it, and the excitement of ordering it. It had the natural finish of course, as that was it back in the day for lefties. I traded it in, as it was really noisy and I didn’t know enough about how to fix ground issues/shielding issues basses back then. I always regretted it, so now I am stoked to have one back.

Only thing I noticed is the saddle lock screw on the bridge. It’s missing, and I think I know why. It’s effectively a righty bridge, so the screw doesn’t actually touch the E string saddle as it’s too far back (normally it would be pushing against the g string saddle). Either way it’s brilliant.

Awesome!

I bought my tribute from GC also. A couple other basses, too, I think, but no others that I currently own.

I love that burst. I liked the natural when I got it, but eventually grew tired of it, and had it refinished. The refin cost more than the bass :D

Wow this looks so much better than in any listing I have ever seen, and the case is a huge plus, congrats!

Excellent buy. You are spot on about the bridge screw thing.

Sadly I was a little premature in my excitement. Everything is great, apart from the nut on the trussrod. The trussrod does indeed turn, but it's really hard to get the wrench in. It came with the factory 4mm wrench (and I tried my own), but something is weird in the nut. I can't tell if it's been stripped a little, or what, but it's an unusual design compared to my fenders and warwicks. There's some kind of collar at the top, with the actual female hex part below. I did get the wrench in with some wrigling, but it's a sod to get out, and i was concerned that it would get worse over time. As I don't have time for a bass project, or a spare 6 bolt neck, sadly it went back to GC today. Always a sad day when you have to return a bass. Oh well, better luck next time.
