I have pretty much narrowed it down to the G&L L2000 Tribute or the MM Stingray for my next bass. I currently have a beginners Ibanez SR300. My main goal is to get a bass than can get you closer to a Wal tone without the pricetag, and upon searching these forums it appears both of these bass guitars will do the trick. If you had to choose, which of these basses would you prefer and why? I certainly like the price of the L2000 better, but the Stingrays are beautiful bass guitars. I'm left handed, and the lefty model of the L2000 only comes in one color. Just trying to get some pros/cons/thoughts on these two basses.
