My vote goes to the G&L L-2000: Better body wood and looks better.
My vote goes to the Bongo. Better body wood and looks better.
to me, bongo has the fatter sound
Never played the Bongo before but I really like the G&L. The L2K gets my vote.
Somebody cut Jack off and pay his tab please
Now really, I am a G&L L2000 freak but am also a MM freak. I have limited experience with the Bongo but from what I have seen/heard it is a fantastic axe leaving me with only one conclusion.......
Buy One of Each I would like a 4 string L2000 and a 5 String Bongo.
The Bongos are UGLY as sin, but unique all the same and i heard they play good and have a nice tone. I also heard the G&L's play good too, my vote goes to the bongo
I must say, if I'd never played either of these basses, I'd keep my ignorant vote to myself. Is it just me?
I know that I haven't voted because, as much as I love my L2K (at least this week), I haven't tried a Bongo. I may never as the neck won't be my thing. Now if EBMM puts out a Bongo with a Sterling neck . . .
I own an L-2500 and Ive played the Bongo.
The Bongo is nice no doubt, but its a bit thinner sounding next to the L-2000.
The only thing I can say I really liked about the Bongo was the 4 band EQ, everything else was between alright & eh.
I have only played one Bongo (dual bucker 4 banger) and one L-2000, my vote goes for the Bongo just because I thought the tone was pretty close to perfect. There are things I disliked about it, but if I had to pick one of the two, I would pick a Bongo.
Once I have the cash I'm going to gut one of my L2000s and toss the pickups and preamp from a bongo in there. Voided warranty here I come.
Where do you plan on finding the pickups and preamps of a Bongo?
Personally, I think the pickups of the L-2000 blow away the ones ine the Bongo.
The preamp..... well I like the G&L's switches, but that 4 band pre is sweet!
Buying a bongo and salvaging the pickups and preamp was my plan. There is an advantage to living near cities with large drug problems.
Being a Miami resident my whole life I can safely say ***?
I see connection between buying a Bongo and the drug market.
Once again I say: Double you- Tee-Ef ?
People tend to unload expensive things cheaply in a big hurry with a monkey on their back.
Yeah, but a Bongo at a price that justifies what you are talking about?
Best of luck to you.
I suppose if I didn't know how to reverse engineer a preamp or lacked the knowledge to copy the pickups, yeah it would be a total waste of money, and therefore an utterly stupid thing to do.
So you plan to buy a Bongo on the black market, open it out, copy the electronics, fabricate the pickup components, copy those, and then put it back together?
Bongo sounded great; never even seen a G&L. So, no vote.
