Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Stuggi, Nov 7, 2006.
I will be joining this club come Thursday, 8/2. My SB-2 is on its way via UPS and I can't wait!
I used to have a L-2000, but it was just too much bass for me. All those switches and knobs made me dizzy .
I'll be back with pix then.
Here's a picture, as promised:
So, what's my member #??
er: I guess I'm #119 as per the first post instructions!
Actually, this is an older photo, the L1505 has moved on. :-| But the two L2K's are staying right here with me.
By the way, the L2000 on the left is not only a Leo Fender signature model with gold hardware, but it also has a very flamey #6 (J-width) neck. Needless to say, it's my "go to" bass for most gigs. ;-)
I just got a used L1500 from my local music shop and I have to say that I love it! The growly tones it produces are just awesome. Pumping it through my Ampeg B200R shakes the ground with some dirty bass! I believe that it's from early 1997, but I don't wanna take the neck off, so I'm not sure. I think this makes me member #118, right? Check it out:
That's my roommate/bandmate's Fender DeVille in the background. My amp is at the practice house.

Well this is my new to me G&L. Definitely the best fretless I've ever played in my life!
my ASATs. the flat out coolest basses ever!
After playing American Deluxe Fenders(both P and J) for the past 3 years and suffering the frustration of not being able to "cut-through", I decided to "take the cure". I sold the Fenders to good homes and picked up these as replacements. "Cutting-through" is no longer a problem.
Here she is. My G&L. I've since had her refretted and refinished the head, which some genius decided to paint himself. I bought her around '84 and gave her away in '92. Just reacquired this spring. I will update the photos soon.
How do these sound/feel (I've heard they're neck-heavy) compared to L2K's. G&L's are not that popular in Chicago and I have never had the chance to play one.
PS: I also have a '83 SB-2 and a '78 Rick
I don't find mine to be all that neck heavy. What I notice more is they hang further to the left than most basses, making the reach to the first position further than usual. This also makes you more prone to bash the end of the headstock, but I find it easy to adjust to both.
If I decide that there is too much overlap between my ASATs and my #8 L2000, it will be the L2K that goes. Love those ASATs!
The L2K-E is on the top of my G&L GAS list.
'84 G&L L-2000
Here she is, just arrived on Tuesday. What number am I?
Just wanted to say hi and to see what was up?
L2.5k 1997, old school, 4X1, no strings through ash green body and rosewood neck.
