I finally picked up my G&L 2500 Tribute today. I haven't really had a chance to play it but I'm quite happy. It was nip and tuck between the Tribute and SUB. I must admit that the lower price of the Tribute won the day. The fact that the Tribute had a much, much prettier finish (cherryburst) tipped the scales in it's favor also. Thanks to Talkbass! I will soon become a supporting member to show my gratitude for the information I got here.
