Bass guitar - Leo Fender G&L-2000
I don't know much about vintage G&L's. What do you think about them?
Old G&Ls are firewood. Trust me, I've tried 50 or 60 of them....
Then, I'll pass. Thanks!
Gotta disagree with you on this as an over-generalization. I haven't "tried 50 or 60 of them" but I've owned a handful, and regarding the old ones I have an '82 L-1000 mahogany/ebony which is a frickin' great bass. Also, The bass in this thread isn't that old, it's got the new head-stock.
L-2000s are great basses, whatever the year....
Sorry, forgot to turn the "sarcasm" light.
Old G&Ls are great. Best bang for your $600-800 out there, IMO.
And, yes, I actually have tried 50-60 of them, and I'm a moderator of a G&L forum elsewhere on the interwebz -- that's how much I love them...
I've been had.
Nah, @dcarwin no sweat. It was actually an old joke shared by a bunch of us who used to hang out elsewhere and were worried that our very vocal love for G&Ls would eventually drive up prices. Therefore, when somebody new would come along and ask about them, we'd initially say, "Firewood..." Of course, then we'd spend the rest of the thread raving about them.
I suppose you could say we succeeded; after 15 years of this, prices for old G&Ls are about the same. (Of course, that probably has a lot to do with the fact that price is a really about popularity and demand rather than performance or what a small band of G&Leeks tapped out on our computers....)
