    I am in the market for an L2500 and when I get it (hopefully in a few months) I was going to have it set up with elixirs. I played a buddy's bass who had them and like them. THoughts??
     
  2. I had a G&L L2500 which I put Elixirs on, and to tell the truth, I liked neither the bass nor the strings. Never could get the B string to happen.

    My experience was exactly the same as Marty's re: the bass. I like the strings on other basses.

    Yes, I owned an L2500 for about a year. I bought it new. It felt clunky, was heavy and I didn't like the B string much. Well-made with a variety of tones but the bass just didn't do it for me. I sold it for about what I paid on Ebay. I greatly prefer Stringray 5's, of which I have two.
