Before I upset anyone, the heading of this thread is not my personal opinion. I'm looking to buy a new bass. I've always had Fenders but during my shopping around, a few people recommended I try a G&L instead. From what I gather, there seems to be a group of G&L proponents out there who say if you want a bass like Leo used to make 'em you're better off going with G&L. "After all," they'll tell you, "G&L basses are made on Fender Avenue." The answer seems simple - Go try one and figure it out for myself - right? This brings me to my reason for this post. Despite several decent music stores being in my area, nobody seems to carry G&L basses. I've never bought a bass online before but maybe I would if I could get a good feeling based on any friendly advice I could get here. Thanks.
