which one do you liike and why?
I like stingrays over the g&l. Nice slim necks, really bright and punchy and simplistic eq.
poll says it all, stingray
L-2500 vs. Stingray5, now you're talking contest.
Stingray all the way, better quality, and sound
I voted Stingray, however I would have made it L-1500 or Sterling.
Ok, guys, ur help and advice needed now.
I just got my Sr5 lefty delivered, been playing it for 3 days non-stop, and i love it to bits
tone, punch, quality of workmanship just brilliant
so what does the G&L have over it? it was my second choice, but a lefty was a big problem and they really didn't want to do it, even though my money was ready to buy....
what was with that???
Doesn't make sense... are you saying you couldn't order a new G&L as a lefty or your dealer wouldn't order a lefty?
Also, IME, G&L and Musicman are both neck and neck in the quality department - both being superb. That comment above is balogna.
 Oh, and given the poll choices.. I'd go with a Climax.
Right, don't you mean L-2500?
Have my suspicions that much of the poll results are based on the fact that Stingray is ubiquitous and L-1500 a fairly rare beast. We usually vote for what we know
Agree that G&L and MM quality have little to choose between them other than IMO G&L having the more striking finishes.
Tonewise they are different with the G&L winning in the aggression department - just no way to tame that sucker!
Having had both, the question for me would be MM Sterling vs. L-1500 with #6 neck (I like skinny necks). And the winner in that contest would be . . . a G&L Climax (predecessor to the L-1500 with a skinny neck standard and much less expensive than a Sterling).
I agree that fit-and-finish/quality is pretty much equivalent between the two (I might give an almost unnoticeable edge to the Ernie Ball instruments).
Tone-wise they are somewhat different. Feature-wise while I really like the EB truss rod adjustment the G&L MFD pickup adjustability and tone and the active/passive option edge it out. And it doesn't hurt that a G&L Climax can be had for in the neighborhood (often under) of $500. Used L-1500s are also unpopular and a great deal.
Well, i picked Stingray vs. L-1500 because they have the same pickup combo, and are both made by former Leo Fender companies.
But most of us G&L fans would buy an L-2000 - I did.
