I found a used American G&L L-2000 in my local guitar store and really liked it. I went back several times to confirm I wanted it. It was tagged at $998.99 (?). Everything works on it and the neck is awesome. I've never owned a G&L or an active bass before but have read great things about them. I got it for $650 w/HSC and a free set of Rotosound ($30) strings for my trade in. Either way, I'm pretty happy with this bass but was curious if I really got a good deal.
