(UPDATE) My guitar player was in the market for a bass and liked the L2000 I got. I sent him a link to another L2000 and he Purchased it, so now we have matching L2000's. My bass is at Mike Lull's getting the neck swapped to the fretless ebony 1986 G&L neck. I did a quick semi set up on the bass and added foam to the pick up springs, and replaced the battery, and it sounds great. I have been getting lots of different sounds from the bass. I am suprised, but shouldn't be at how close I can get to a jazz and precision sound. It is a solid bass, and will work well for what I will use it for. The frets are a bit wide and hang over the fretboard a bit, but I will shave them back. (pictures from seller of my bass) (pictures from seller of my guitar players bass) in the mid '80's I purchased a G&L L1000 used fretted bass and ordered a fretless neck from the factory to make a fretless. I love the lows and power of the L1000 and it is a great fretless, but it didn't have the high end of a jazz. I have read about the k modification of the L2000 and thought this would be a great way to have the best of both worlds. I will be reuiting the original neck with the L1000 and using the fretless on the L2000. After playing on it for a couple of hours I have a feeling I just might eventually get another L2000 or L2500 and leave it fretted.
