    Totally agree. I have an ash/maple M2000 and love it. I agree that the preamp is super useable and fairly transparent. This bass has the unusual ability to have a bit of grit/growl/edge to the tone, yet still have completely articulate note definition. Like all top-shelf instruments, it transmits its every little thing your fingers do to the amp, right now. I'll never sell mine.

    I bought this M2000 new for my birthday two months ago. I already knew the magic of the L2500 so I thought I would take a chance on an M.
    I was not disappointed-it may be the perfect bass for someone who-
    -leans towards the P side of tone
    -wants a powerful preamp but without sounding ultra modern.

    as good as the L is, it is more aggressive than the M; the M is more refined yet powerful. both are voiced P like.

    the M preamp is very simple and a time-proven formula. for an 18 volt preamp, it is remarkably organic. I bet G&L could sell a lot of these preamps in pedal form.

    the M series aren't a top seller for G&L for some reason; I think they are an excellent bass for someone who loves G&L, but maybe not an L or an SB-2 for pure aggression. the bass is clear yet full of tone. the preamp is one of the best sounding ones I have come across.

    I opted for empress body for the lightweight nature of it. G&L offers very light instruments for no extra charge when many builders charge huge premiums as the weight goes down.

    not a bad tone to be had in this bass; all settings are useable. perfect fretwork as per usual G&L standards.

    G&L's are usually the best kept secret in the bass world but the M2000 may be the best kept secret in the G&L catalog.
