Well, about 4:00 PM today, the FedEx man left a rather large package at the door while I was napping. Then, about 4:30, I got all the packaging off (talk about protective packing!), and there sat my new/used G&L L2000 in three tone sunburst finish. OH MY GOD. This is a flawlessly finished bass, with a neck that's like butter to my large hands. Talk about a tone monster. Past 45 minutes I've been running through them, and I still haven't gotten them all down. Whoa momma. I know the TB rules, Pics will come as soon the camera gets back home (with my stepdad at the moment). So don't yell at me just yet. And, I don't think I'm gonna string this BEAD. I have an Ibanez ATK coming next week, and that'll be strung BEAD most likely. This thing is too much fun for me, and I don't want to risk messing up the fun. OSHC, shammy rag, set of Dean Markley strings, the truss rods and original materials...oh wow. I'm in love.
