    I haven't played these because I don't play four string. But if I did I would jump on this. click here :bassist:

    those look like corts to me... probably same factory...

    although the G&L design is probably worth the 3 bones.

    I am usually skeptical about deals like these, but I thought for 3 bills I could always move it on Ebay if it sucked.

    Mine arrived today. I am amazed. Guys, if anyone is thinking about springing for one of these, DO IT. As some of you know, I DETEST Musicians Fiend, but this was a killer deal.
    I got the 3t burst/rosewood. It's a stunning looking bass. The burst is very nice, and there is a real nice looking tort pickguard on it. It came in a nice padded gig bag with a G and L logo, allen wrenches, and a cheapie cord. It has a #6 neck..very comfy.

    Plugged in..what can you say....P BASS. It sounds like a nice P bass, and the added J pickup provides some versatility and mid grunt. It will sound incredible once my TI flats arrive. Leo did the electronics right on the G&L's and these are US pickups on the Tributes.

    I am willing to bet these are made in the same factory as the Lakland Skylines. The vibe and construction seem to be the same high quality. I probably wouldn't pay list price for one of these, when USA G&L's are often available for great prices used, but for $299 shipped, this absolutely cannot be beat.
