Hi! I need some L2k based advice. I bought my bass off ebay about 2 years ago now, payed £500 (about $950 at the time)for it, but I haven't been able to really play it until recently, because of a jack socket issue. Now that I can play it though, I'm worried about it's authenticity/curious about it's age. I don't know anyone who owns a G&L, or any shops near me that sell them, so I haven't really been around them a lot, making me a bit of a novice. One of my curiosities is about the neck. I know it's not REALLY old, because it has the cut-out headstock, it's bi-cut with 3 bolts, but there is no fret dot on the 21st fret, and I've only ever seen maybe 2 without one. I was also wondering, do all/most L2ks have a plastic control plate? I never thought much of this, but it says on the G&L website that they have a metal cover. Cheers in advance for any help, and sorry for the long-ass post Max.
