OK so I've dig out my old XL2 and I'm starting to think 'wow, what a great bass' BUT it just doesn't quite have the mojo of the old L2 that I used to have and I'm not sure why. I know that on the original L2s:- - the screws are on the top faceplate - the battery compartment is centered - the 3 knobs are styled differently - the pickups are the orig EMG SS (mine has been retrofitted) - the bridge has the knife-edge saddles But what else changed? I THINK that the XL2 doesn't sound as Steinie as the L2 did and unless it is my imagination the neck seems a little more chunky but that could just be poppycock. Can anyone shed any light on these excellent basses. Are L2s better and if so, why do you think that is?
