I have a G&L L-1000, I think its a 1982. I borrow it from my old man. I don't know who owned it before him, he didnt buy it new. Anyway, ever since I started playing it, the tone has been all right, but nothing great. It can sound hollow and tinny at times. I've tried just about every possible EQ combination on my amp, but all of them still have that sound. I've also tried all 3 positions on the selector switch, and both tone knobs, I think thats what they are at least. I'm going for something like a modern hard rock sound. I love the sound of stingrays. Am I missing something, or am I asking the G&L to do something it just won't do? Any help is appreciated.
