    Ok so I bought a 2500 Tribute Maple/Blue burst back in September from Rocket Music and I recently had to get it set up because of a lot of buzz issues on the neck and I went to a G&L tech pro and he told me it needed a new neck. I then called Greg at Rocket music and he e-mailed me same day with a copy of the bill of sale. I then called G&L and talked to Chris the Manager of Repairs and he was very helpful. I live only about 45 min from the factory so I was able to drop the bass off myself, I met Chris showed him the bass and he said he would take care of it. Everyone was really nice it was a nice experience. They treated me very well even though I am just a kid trying to get a music degree. Props to G&L's customer relations :) I will post with the new neck info
     
  2. Great news! It's good to hear that it's going smoothly.

    I got a call from Chris yesterday and he told me that my bass is ready with a new neck I will have to pick it up on Friday due to my bust schedule but I think a six day turn around is awesome :)
    After I get it back I will let you guys know the verdict

    The first neck on my L2000 tribute was bad and they sent a new one to my dealer no questions asked. I can't remember the exact turnaround but it was really fast and the bass has sounded and played great ever since.
