I'm trading a Fender Jazz Bass for one tomorrow, I'm just a big fan of G&L's stuff, so I'm making the trade. I know they are very similar, I'm just curious what people think about them. Thanks! I already have an old G&L L1000, have had that for about twenty years now, and if the quality is the same then I'll be pretty happy. But I don't even know this: does G&L use poly finishes? I assume they do. Also, do the BS guitars have quarter sawn necks or is that just the vintage series they did?
