    Yeah, L2K's work passive without a battery even in the compartment.

    Each pickup is wired as having the “single coil with bass boost” mode (OMG was not G&L naming). It’s just more obvious on the neck pickup due to the position’s inherent tone being bassier to begin with.

    Yes, on a stock bass, both pickups are wired identically, so both use the same wind/polarity as the “single coil” part of the equation, so no hum cancellation when both are on, but rather you get the hum of each pickup added together.

    Yes

    That's good to know, means I don't have to be so anal about checking my battery.

    It will still drain when the bass is plugged in, though, so keep that in mind.

    What's unusual about how good this L2K sounds is I have spent the better part of a couple years looking for a second desert island bass as compared to my LB-100 and just haven't been able to find anything that suits me until now. I knew in the first five minutes this thing was/is fabulous. I had purchased an Empress L1500 in see through Blue that was gorgeous but I just couldn't bond with the tone and the neck was a little small for my liking. It was a great bass just not for me. Then I tried a Tony Franklin bass, it looked and played great but I could never get the tone sorted to my liking. I traded the TF for this L2K and I just love it.

    Now I have two amazing G&L basses! I am tickled!

    And my rule of thumb is G&L just goes great with GK. I got a whole pile of GK gear to run these through and it sounds good. Next weekend I'm using my trusty GK MBF500 into my two vintage GK Thiele 1x12 Cabs. We are playing on some sort of small island and our gear has to travel by boat so I'm going with my medium rig. Going to be using just the L2K for this gig.

    Nice!

    I think I would like an L1000 due to where the pickup is.
    Actually wish I had found an L1000 when I had the cash instead buying the stuff I did. That red bass is gorgeous!

    Thanks. It was definitely a superfluous acquisition, since I had the two L2000s already, but I had always wanted a red + rosewood L1000, so I had to jump on it when one came up locally. Plays pretty good - could use a refret, because the frets have been filed a bit too low, IMO - but sounds phenomenal.

    I’ll keep that in the back of my mind. But no plans as of now.

    A lefty L-1000 is one of only two basses I have any G.A.S. for, the other being a Dingwall.
    Lovely instrument, congratulations!

  18. You beat me to it :), first time I've seen a
    SunB back too.

    Great find Bulltproof, be espesially pleasing for a Leftie, as they're not exactly thick on the ground.
