Since the prices are so similar, I'm wondering why people buy L1500's instead of L2000's. To me it just looks like an L2000 without a neck pickup. Is it possible to get the same sound with an L2000 using only the bridge pickup? Also, does G&L still make the SB 1 and 2? I would love to have a more fenderish type of G&L. They should make one like a Jazz Bass!
