    How does El Toro differ from El 2000?

    Best feeling necks EVER on a bass!! I played one a few months ago and the sound was alright(mostly due to an electrical issue) but the neck was just incredible!!

    what a thunderous rock in OMG passive mode with a pick!!!:cool:

    As for the neck, i slightly prefer my L1000, which has a the same width but with a flatter shape.

    Nonetheless, both are underestimated and wonderful instruments!:bassist:

    Old nineties G&L's are firewood...FIREWOOD I tell ya!


    (not really, but don't talk too much about how under-rated these Late-Leo basses are, you'll drive the prices up!)

    Heh, I don't think the El-Toro made it to the '90's.

    I have no idea. I'd suspect do considering the 80's and the fact that it has a matching headstock. You know what happens when you assume though.....

    I've got an '83 mahogany El-Toro and it's face melting! It's very much a more focused L-2000; same aggressive voice and versatility but tighter and less boomy. It'd be killer if they re-issued these beasts. They can be had for a steal on the used market.
