    The only way you'll really know is to try one out for yourself. A Ric is going to have a very different feel and sound than an L2000, if that's what you have.

    I like this apple, would l like an orange.... :D

    I've got two G & L s and one Ric. Love em all the same. I will admit I do feel a little "cooler" when I've got the Ric on though! G&L can sound like virtually anything but a Ric.

    that's strange. it is not the first time i see G&L and rickenbacker named in this context. like one and like the other?

    i don't know. first you should name which G&L are you speaking about. L2000?

    i own both and i love them both, but they are completely different basses in construction, sound and playability.

    keep in mind that i do not have a trademark bass i like. i am not a loyal player, i prefer to have some really different basses in my arsenal.

    My thinking exactly Barrosa! Both are of excellent quality. And both are different from most things out there. But if you have them both with you, you have almost every style covered.

    Great, thoughtful response. Yes, it's an L2000 and I totally dig it. I also have a MIM JazzV that i play too (barts installed so it sounds awesome).

    I love the way the Ric looks, and was just wondering about the tone/sound. I guess I really need to p[lay one. Thanks again.
