Yesterday I went to the G and L dealer near me and I ordered a new L-2000. Its Honey with an ash body and a maple neck with gun oil tint. I'm so excited about it I feel great that I finally did order it . It should come in in March sometime because G&L custom orders take about 6 - 12 weeks . For a couple of weeks I was sure I wanted and L-2000 but I wasn't too sure of the finish I wanted. As soon as it arrives I'll be posting pictures. I'm definitly going to change the strings as soon as it arrives. Just a set of D'Addarios for now.
