    ... and it was very (!!!) sweet sounding!!

    So today at our store, a new G&L L-2500 came in, and I played with it a little.
    Like the L-2000, the equalisation and preamp are very versatile, but what realy struck me with this one were two things:

    1/ this bass is string through body (you can do string through bridge too), making it has a very solid, deep-talking sound (much more so than the Tribute and USA L-2000 that's also have on the wall, and who aren't stb)

    2/ this is the first 5'er I've played that has a very solid low B, not sloppy at all, giving the bass a punchy tone on the very low register too (i think it's the solid bridge - stb - combination)

    Thought I'd let you know...

    If G&L would only make a Tribute L-2000 with string through body, I'd buy one in a second (I'm in Belgium, USA L-2000 runs about 2000 euro's here; the tribute 700 euro; big difference in price, little diff in sound, not worth the extra money)

    I had a G&L L-2500 and liked it very much, at first. Then, over time, I felt the string spacing was too narrow for my style of playing, so I sold it. Someone got a great deal on an excellent bass. I prefer the wider spacing of my Fender Roscoe Beck V.
