Do yo play a G&L? What model(s) do you play? What do like/dislike the most? Pics?
um... the g&l club is on part 6. That's over 5000 posts, many with pics, from g&l players, past present and future.
My new USA-made L-2500 that I've owned for about nine weeks has become a favorite very quickly.
I think it's an exceptionally good bass, in every way that matters to me.
This is an actual photo, taken by the good folks at Bass San Diego, who I bought it from. Fine folks to do business with.
Ummm, yes. Tons of us do! I and many others on TB have owned & gigged lots of them since the early '80's. good luck exploring!
G&L makes super nice instruments. I've got an ASAT that is just killer.
I've got a pair of L2500 blueburst USA in fretted and fretless which along with my L2500 tribute bar bass are my main axes these days since I've dropped back to 5 strings. The versatility of this group defies belief!
If only G&L made that crew in 6 strings too!
(of course with the L2X00 basses you have to be into chunky necks, and knobosity which I am)
ASATs are kinda nice.
I am a huge G&L fan. The build quality, tone & tonal versatility, playability, options, colors; they're everything I'm looking for in a bass guitar.
Recently snagged a new MJ-4. It came with DA SS rounds which gave it an almost clinical or sterile sound, not much warmth. Not a 'bad' sound, but not great.
Switched to TI Jazz Rounds, now it sounds expressive and musical. One of those basses that needs the right strings to unlock its potential.

That MJ4 is killer. I almost bought that instead of my M2500.
I play a 2009 US made G&L L-2000 (with K switch, matching headstock and #8 neck):
Thanks--love how it plays and sounds, it's a keeper.
I spent over $1000 on a G&L . I played it at home and it sounded fine. I played it at a gig and it had no cut thru sound. The tones kind of all ran together and it sounded muddy, dull and not good. I adjusted of course-- to no avail. I played at another gig in a different room where my P and J sound great. Poo Poo I tell you. I got rid of it . So not everyone has a good experience. Every company on Earth that makes guitars has some duds. I seem to end up with a few- now and then. I just move on. Unless it's a Fender I never go back to the brand . Once bitten twice shy.
What are/were the genre you were playin' and equalization and fxchain when you didn't cut thru?
I'm probably a bit partial over here, yet I play dowtuned thrash metal (also) with a two active seven string guitar attack in the band and obligatory double bass drum aplenty, and chose G&Ls a long time ago essentially for their attitude to authoritatively sit in a so crowded, compressed mix.
I know what you mean. Fender NEVER turns out a dud bass!
I like my GnLs for their range and ability to become agressive. If I want to cut through the mix like nothing else I play my Modulus not my Fenders.
I don't play a G&L.
I play three G&Ls! Not all at once of course.
A JB, an M2500, and an SB-2.
G&L JB special edition 2012 here...
great bass, a beautiful work of art, and most important, it has tone for days..
at the price of a Fender Deluxe jazz there is no battle.
