I played through both the L-2 and the L-4 back in the day. I never owned one but I do remember I liked them, they were just out of my price range at the time.
On a slightly related note, the L-5 is concidered by many (myself included) to be the best sounding solid state guitar amp ever built.
Norlin era gear generally gets a bad rap but Gibson really hit it out of the park with the Lab Series stuff.
