Hey all, a local shop deals almost exclusively in G&L and I'm considering getting a Tribute L2000. I saw a video of it on youtube (the guy was going through all the different tones you can get out of it) and was mesmerized...I mainly play rock but I would like a bass that can play almost anything from rock to reggae to funk to jazz. What I really like is that growling, bass-heavy tone that you can get out of a Fender Jazz. Is it possible to get that out of a Tribute L2k? As to why I don't just get a Jazz; it seems to me the G&L basses at the same pricepoint as a mexican jazz have better quality. You can also get a much wider variety of tones out of the two humbuckers than you can out of the Jbass pickups.
