    Well...new to me. I just picked this beauty up. Paid $600.00 with original hard case. I have never owned a G&L. Tried many of 'em in stores. There was just something special about this bass, it just felt right and the tone is awesome. It also has a drop D tuner on it. First time I ever used one. Not hard to get used to at all. Check her out.

    You're gonna love it! And what's not to love about being on the buyer end of a used G&L deal these days? They're worth sooo much more.

    I am looking forward to trying one of these someday. No one carries them locally. Great looking bass.:)

    I just got one exactly like yours, JP...except I got mine for only 500.00 (sorry...) ;)

    Even at 600.00, though, that's a bargain in terms of bang-fo-de-buck.

    This bass plays so well and has so many different tones, I'm doing something I never thought I'd do, getting rid of my fenders.....well except my 69 Jazz that is.
     
  9. Wow, nice bass and great price. I'm real partial to that color scheme. My on-order L1500 has that color scheme, but it doesn't arrive until Christmas time...

    When it comes time to move up from my MIM J fretless, I'm thinking long and hard about an L2000 fretless. I'm told the bridge solo will nail the Jaco tone-thing.

    Yeah it will - I have a fretless one. I also recently aquired an early 80's E series fretted one. The old ones are almost completely different instruments - the active boost is much more bassy, and the feel is much like a vintage Fender. Me like:)
