I was thinking about getting a new bass and have been looking at the G&L Tribute series. where I found the M2000 GTS and the L2000. The only differences I could find between the basses were that the pick-ups are very slightly different. The L2000 appears to have more complex electronics with its "Tri-Tone" system allowing the bass to be active/passive and can split the electronics to series or parallel, but I don't know what the third switch does? The M2000 is an 18V active bass with the same bass, treble and mid EQ as the L2000. I like the fact that it has volume controls for each pick-up. What I dislike about the M2000, is the fact that it will need to 9Vs to power it and I don't know how long they will last before replacing. I could currently buy the M2000 for around £480 which I think is a good price for something such as this, I also think that it looks more premium than the L2000 I dislike the fact that the L2000 doesn't have volume controls for its pick-ups, would this make it hard to control in passive? What I do like is the "Tri Tone" system as it seems to give the bass such a huge range in sound making it very versatile. At the moment It's priced at around £410 making it quite a bit cheaper than the M2000 Both of the basses have the same chrome finished hardware All of this leads me to this question; which would you get? Since I have barely touched the surface on each of the basses features, here are the links: G&L® Tribute® Series M-2000™ GTS G&L® Tribute® Series L-2000™ Your input will be much appreciated!
