    GNL it's a good thing :D

    what type of cords are you all using? I'm trying to record my GnL bass direct through the computer and keep getting this buzz saw sound. I had monster cable for bass a few years ago but the 1/4 jacks were tiny and didn't sit right in the bass. Any suggestions? Here is my G&L2k mixed in with some stuff a guitarist for the Naval Band emailed me today. He told me to think old school and skanky so I put a porno on mute. Aside from the line being all out of sinc and sounding like a bad fak, check out the fatness of that bass. I dug the bass tone in the recording. Maybe it's my headphones. That's with no effects direct and the buzz sound underneath all that computer drum stuff. I have never recorded with this bass before and like what I hear in this track. I would like to get a clear solo track every time now and hope this puppy can do it to it some how some way! That is the difference in Buzzz in the line below as a solo track without drums. I'll post a pic of this bass when I borrow a digital camera tomorrow. It has a nice maple board. Have you all been to the dude pit? They have an all GnL forum and a cool pic of Leo Fender at the top that quotes him saying that these are the best instruments he ever made. How cool is that? Later....

    Mike,

    Nice bass. My friend Dean has had one of those for years and it sounds good in every setting. I've heard it in big and small clubs and it always works.

    Good luck with it.

    (HD on edit - this was in a thread by itself, and I think it belongs here. Joel, if I'm wrong, let me know and I'll move your post where it actually belongs.)

    Nice bass! You can learn a lot about them on the Pit, some real helpful owners there!

    Hot signal, huh? I'm still getting used to that. I have to back off on my ASAT, the volume is so hot. Haven't tried recording with it, but I expect it'll take some adjusting from my usual settings...

    I love my L2K! I also own an ASAT special G@#tar, that sounds like god himself on rhythm (especially when I'm not the one playing it)! :p

    Cheers,

    I have been playing this L-2000 for a few day while is has great tone and looks great It might be a little heavy for me . I will have to play it for a few more days then decide if it is for me .
