I'm in the market for a new bass and I'm leaning towards getting the L2K, as from what I've heard it can replicate pretty much all of the sounds I like to hear in music. The only problem is that in my country (Ireland) there aren't any G&L dealers, so I have nowhere to go to get a feel for it. I'm not sure on whether I'd like a 5 string or the usual 4, but there really is no opportunity for me to to try it before I buy it in any case. I've only owned one bass to date, a run down, trussrodless Squier P-Bass, so I'm in need of an upgrade. What's your opinion on blind buying in this instance?
