New L-2000 ordered.

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Youngspanion, Feb 2, 2006.

  1. 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 :hyper: about it I feel great that I finally did order it:smug: . It should come in in March sometime because G&L custom orders take about 6 - 12 weeks:bawl: . For a couple of weeks I was sure I wanted and L-2000 but I wasn't too sure :confused: 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.

    Hey, congrats! I've been thinking of ordering one myself. I played one for the first time a couple of months ago, and loved it. Trouble is, I played an L-1500 last Saturday, and discovered a raging, growly beast! So I might prefer that, but I've read about noisy preamps and a brutally harsh high end in active mode, which of course leads back to the L2k. Looking forward to the pics.

    I love my ASAT (L2K guts in a Tele body) & I'm sure you'll love your new bass. Good call on the strings - the stock SIT's suck IMHO.

    Thse p/u's are H-O-T!!! But you're gonna love it....
  5. Congrats!

    Looking forward to seeing some pix...

    Did you get it with or without dots on the fretboard?

  6. I didn't specify, so I guess with. Better with out maybe?
  7. Awesome work, looking forward to seeing it!
  8. I love the way they look without, but that's just me and my dream G&L.
  9. The shop I work at got one just like that last week, it is a great looking combination. Good choice!
  10. Thanks. Could you post any pictures of it. That would be fantastic.
  11. Props! Some day I'll get a custom L2500 to join my L2000.

    Your orders got placed one day apart so it's possible, depending on their production schedule.

    Hopefully, I'll be ordering a new L-1505 as soon as I get my Rick sold. I've heard all the concerns about the high end boost and such, but that's what eq's are for! :D
