    I'm just curious as to why the resale value of G&L's are so low? I just picked up an L2500 from a fellow TB'er, and am absolutely falling in love with this bass. It is quality on every level. So why does an instrument this nice, have such a bad resale value?
    Luckily, I don't see myself selling this anytime soon.

    Because not to many big rock stars play them . They have gone up in value in the last few years though About 7 years ago I picked up a mint Fretless El-Toro for 350.00 now of you can find one it would be worth much more . The internet has brought up the value some .

    I've got 2--an '83 SB-1 and a '91 L2000. I love them both. There's a sweet SB-2 in a local shop here that i'm gassing for now. I need to sell something so I can get it. :D
