Played this bass today, it was awesome!!'
Even more YES!!!!!
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!!
Yeah man. I'm all about the vintage G&L's....nothing like them. The tones too. Love!!!
G&L #8 is the finest bass neck on planet Earth .
El Toro es muy amarillo.
mine is definitively my main bass:
what a thunderous rock in OMG passive mode with a pick!!!
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!
Cool color. Is it for sale somewhere?
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.
It was for sale at Mr. Music in Allston, MA.
you know what El Toro means.....it means "The Toro".
You mean, like the snowblowers?
Nice is that color original?
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.
