    I've played a Series E G&L L2000 before, which sounded awesome. But I do like Warwicks too. I realize they both have way different sounds, but which one is the better value?

    Value is in the eye of the buyer... so that is up to you.

    Resale value? You'll take a hit on either one when selling.

    With this kind of comparison... probably similar values and quality, so it comes down to what you like best. When I was in the market for my Warwick (German Streamer $$ 5), the only two basses that almost made me change my mind were the 5 string G&L's and the Spectors that had the EMG's with the coil switch things (they were on a crazy sale back then, although the Streamer $$'s were too). Anyway, all I'm trying to say is that in a situation like this there's no clear winner.

    I wouldn't buy an instrument based on overall value although it is a consideration. I love G&Ls but they're very different from the Warwicks you're looking at. I think a used G&L would retain it's value better but may tear your face off... watch out.

    Not sure what you mean when you say "tear your face off"
