I have L2000 from the first year of its production 1981. Maple neck and transparent red ash body. My bass is very heavy, heaviest bass I've ever owned. Beside this, I love it and it is my weapon of choice.
It has literally tons of punch. This bass is a monster steroid MF. I love it for tons of bottom and clear audible treble, not artificial like in Music Man.
When I bought the bass it was already over 30 year old and it wasnt lying in the case because somebody was playing this bastard a lot.
Neck has a perfect feeling for me. Wide ,thin but very solid. The only thing is that I need to change frets, because they are really worn now.I will work on electronic shielding because its noisy.
I've had many basses in past Fenders, Music Man's etc. But this bass has tons of definition, thick/fat tone with great power and natural sound.
I play since 15 years, I play jazzcorish stuff.
