    i really love these pickups and the electronics on the L-2000 basses, i was wondering if G & L sold these pickups seperately or if there are any pickup manufacturers who make replacements or something similar.

    Yes, you can get them separately. Tim at Buffalo Brothers Guitars can get them (and give you current quotes on the prices) if you drop him an email.

    Other G&L dealers can probably do the same thing.

    i bought a used l-2000 about a year ago but the neck ended up being warped so i had to return it but i fell in love w/ the pickups.

    not too long ago i saw a bassist for a band w/ a MIJ p-bass w/ a MFD pickup in the bridge and it sounded amazing. but he didn't even know it was a G & L pickup or where it came from or anything. not so sure i want to route my MIA p-bass but im really interested in building something w/ these pu's in it, maybe a jazz or something.

    well anyways thanks for your help,

    Are they good for playing metal?

    Very nice pickups. I tried to purchase one of the P models from G&L last year. Unavailable. Too bad, it's probably one of the most versatile and best sounding P pickups ever.
