Hi. I just traded a Warwick Thumb 5 bolt-on for a mint, natural-ash finish G&L L-1505 plus $300 cash, which seemed like an equitable deal to me, especially since the Thumb 5's narrow string spacing and lack of strap balance drove me crazy. . . and my wife loved the idea that I was actually getting a LESS-expensive bass for a change!!! But anyway, I can't figure out why nobody ever seems to mention the L-1505 anywhere. It's got a beautiful, open, clear passive sound, along with a very in-your-face active sound if you want that. Plus, it's got the usual G&L series/parallel switch, which gives it the potential either for "slappiness" or for a HUGE bottom end. I actually talked to a guy at G&L when I was looking for info on this bass, and he said he owns both a 1505 and an L-2500, and prefers the more "open" sound of the one-pickup model, especially on tape. So I'm wondering -- anyone out there have experience/opinions regarding the L-1505?
