    I finally tried out a Tribute M-2000 today and it was just what I thought it was: an active soapbar bass in a Fender style body. It makes me think of a Sadowsky modern with a much, much lower price. I know the M-2500 will have narrower string spacing, but I have never had a problem playing G&L five, so an M-2500 may be my next bass for church. I am going back to the modern sound, after some experimentation, I find it works best for what do.

    I recently recieved my M2500, and I love it! I also have a Lull M5 and a fender Jazz, and the G&L is the current favorite. I can't get enough of the punchy midrange, and I like the close string spacing. If you like the G&L tone, you can't beat it!

    You may very well find out that G&L tone takes EQ very well - either on the bass or on your amp. I EQ the daylights out of my modded L-1505 and love it. I find that the overall tone character of G&L allows me plenty of tone options.

    I am pretty experienced with G&Ls. I know they have pretty flexible eqs, the M-2500, however, has two humbuckers in the classic midrange position that you see on Ken Smith, the Peavey Cirrus, and Sadowsky Modern basses. It can't help but put out a lot of cutting midrange.
